Breakfast Stuffed Peppers

Breakfast can be challenging to get in your veggies while on the 21 Day Fix! 
Since the meal plan for Country Heat Follows the fix portions and plan 
I am getting ready for this new workout by testing some new recipes to add to my meal plan for my accountability test group!!

Breakfast Stuff Peppers
2 red, yellow or orange bell peppers, halved and seeded
6 eggs, whisked
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup fresh spinach, chopped & wilted (I wilt my spinach by placing fresh chopped spinach in glass bowl, covering with damp paper towel and microwaving for about 40 seconds until wilted)
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup feta cheese
4 turkey sausage links cooked (preferably organic, low sodium, no nitrates)
olive oil or cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, salt, pepper, spinach, both cheeses and sausage until combined. Lay your peppers in a lightly greased baking dish (use olive oil or cooking spray to grease). Make sure to use a snug pan so your peppers don’t tip over (I used a 9×9 cooking dish). If your peppers are “wobbly” then you can carefully slice the bottom of the pepper to make a flat base, BUT do not cut through the pepper or your eggs will run out. Divide your egg mixture between your peppers. Cover with foil and bake for about 35-40 minutes or until eggs are set. I took the foil off the last 10 minutes to brown it up a bit. **Also I will note that depending on the size of the peppers this may or may not be enough filling. I had large peppers and this was plenty. If you have small peppers you may want to decrease your amounts or use more than two peppers halved.
21 Day Fix: 1 pepper = 1.5 GREEN, 1 RED, 1 BLUE
