Recipe Ingredients for Nestled Baked Egg in Pepper

2 medium raw Bell Pepper Red
2 tbsp Butter
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
3 cup Rice, White, Long-grain, Regular, Cooked
8 oz Squash, Winter, Butternut
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
0.25 tsp Pepper, Black
0.5 cup Milk, Fluid, 3.25% Milkfat
4 large Egg, Whole

Recipe Directions for Nestled Baked Egg in Pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Place the bell peppers skin side down in a 9-inch casserole dish. Add 1 1/2 cups water to the dish, cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes; drain.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion, fennel and rice and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Add the squash, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 2 cups water; bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover and simmer until the rice is almost tender, 15 minutes. Stir in the heavy cream.

  3. Spoon 1/4 cup of the rice mixture into each pepper half. Transfer the remaining mixture to the baking dish and nestle the stuffed peppers into the rice. Using a spoon, make an indentation in the center of each stuffed pepper. Crack an egg into each indentation; season with salt and pepper. Bake until the eggs are just set, about 15 minutes.
