Baked Egg Pepper Cups

I had prepared this post awhile ago, and didn't know if I would be able to share it.

However, I have such wonderful news, and I am beyond grateful  for all the prayers that were said on behalf of my Marine grandson who was in Afghanistan.    He is safely out of there!  They had a ceremony for the fellow Marines that were killed, which he said was very sad.  We had a very stressful week of fear and worry, but we are most appreciative for all your love, prayers and concern. Thank you, thank you!   Please continue to pray for all those who are still in Afghanistan and for the families who lost their loved ones.

This sunshine-y table is set with my cheerful sunflower plate, napkins from my friend, Bea, and sweet vase from my daughter.

Bea also gave me this Mary Engelbreit teacup.  It's so cute, isn't it?

It was Senior night for my grandson, Riley, in the red jersey.  He's pictured with Caiden, Molly, my daughter and Cissy.  The seniors were all announced with their parents. 

My son, Tim, asked me if I wanted to watch granddaughter, Avery, play in her high school volleyball tournament and of course, I said "YES"!  Avery's team won their division and it was super exciting!

Baked Eggs in Pepper Cups

Baked Eggs in Pepper Cups

I made these for a family brunch and they're so colorful and you can make them ahead! They are also so easy with only three ingredients.


  • 4 medium bell peppers, any color
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 8 large eggs
  • Shredded Mexican-blend cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Cut bell peppers in half through the stem end.  Remove the ribs and seeds.  Place the peppers in the pan, with the cut side up and sprinkle each with a little salt and pepper.
  3. Bake the peppers for 15 minutes.  Remove the pan from the oven and crack 1 egg into each pepper cup.  Season the eggs with a little salt and pepper, then top with some of the shredded cheese.
  4. Bake until the egg whites are set, 15-20 minutes.
  5. Serve right away or let cool , then refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 4 days.  Reheat in the microwave.

Thank you for your visit!  xo

Meal Plan Monday


  1. So grateful for God's grace with Connor! This past week was certainly one of prayer for others, and continues.
    Kitty, what wonderful family highlights. I always enjoy those, as well as your place settings and shared recipes. Love the Mary Engelbreit teacup with the sunflower plate - apropos for your happy heart! This recipe looks delish. My daughters will love this. I'm saving and sharing with them. Have a great week.

  2. So good to read your post. Such great relief and praise to our Heavenly Father for having His hand on Connor. Very grateful to know he was able to leave. This is such an interesting recipe! Don't believe I've ever seen such an idea but tasty for sure. Your vase and teacup are so so cute. God bless you dear Kitty and cover you with peace beyond understanding. 💜😘


  3. It is a great blessing to find you posting today. The week was horrible. It was much more nerve wracking for the families I know. It is a sweet word to have Connor out of "there." He has had to face some big storms and trials. Ongoing prayers for him.

    I thought "pepper" cups meant pepper as in salt and pepper. 😉 My culinary experience is limited.

    Have a far better week this than last...

  4. Thank God, thank God, thank God!!!!!!!!!!!! I know the waiting had to be excruciating for you and your family. This war…ugly, ugly business. Factions have been warring and people have held deep seated hatred for each other since the beginning of time. It is so…ugh! I wish people values life the way they value those trivial things (power, money, popularity, etc) they sometimes do.😔 Anyway, I am grateful that your grandson was spared and pray for his safe and swift return home. Take care, Kitty.

  5. Kitty, I am so very happy and have given God much praise for Connor! That boy has surely had some prayer going up. God's precious hand of protection has surrounded him. I am praying for all those in harms way. And with these storms! My heart is so heavy these days with so much going on. But in the midst of it....keeping my eyes on HIM! Those pepper cups look divine. I love, love, love the pictures! Mercy, these youngins growing up! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. So thankful for Connor’s safe evacuation from Afghanistan Kitty! I know it was such a relief to your family. I’m so saddened for the loss of the life of the 13 US service members, innocent citizens and the whole debacle. Continued prayers for those there and our country in these troubling times. On a happier note, love your sunshine-y table! ME designs always bring a smile to my face. Your baked eggs look delicious and love seeing the smiles on your sweet family's faces. ♥

  7. I'm so happy to hear that your grandson back and is safe Kitty. This recipe for the egg bake looks so good. I can't wait to try out this recipe. I hope you have a nice week Kitty.

  8. It is so good that Connor is out of there. It's been such a terrible week. I think of the things you mentioned in your e-mail, about what he saw, and how those terrible sights would have been seared into his brain.
    Your daughter Molly looks like a high school student herself!
    Have a wonderful week, Kitty.

  9. I was thinking of you and your family last week. So glad to hear that Connor is safe. I hope that he and Marines are being offered something to help them process the sad and traumatizing experiences in Afghanistan.

    With the first day of September just days away, I'm loving the fall vibe of your tea setting. The Mary Engelbreit teacup is too cute!

  10. Praise be to the Lord Above! Kitty, what wonderful news. Just wow.

    Congrats to your winning family. And as always, you look maaaaahvelous. ♥

  11. So thankful your Connor and all the other marines are now out of Afghanistan and home. Such an ordeal of worry for all the families. Lovely photos of your family. You are very blessed, dear Kitty.

  12. Oh Kitty, I was so relieved when you told me Connor is safe! I can’t imagine what you and your family were going through not knowing. I am so sad for those beautiful young people who lost their lives in Kabul, what a tragedy. I am so glad you got to do some family fun things with your children and grands, the photos are wonderful. I love your sunflower table today, and the Mary Englebreit tea cup is adorable! The egg cups are so pretty and sound delicious to eat!

  13. So, so very thankful that Connor is safe! Praising the Lord with you, while praying for those who lost their loved ones.

    So good to see your sports-loving grands. Cissy is looking so grown up! Mu granddaughter Mackenzie played varsity volleyball and loved it. She is off to college this year -- not sure if she will have the chance to play or not. She has quite a heavy schedule of classes.

    And the pepper cups look completely amazing. I will be trying those for sure. Our local supermarket often has wonderful deals on bags of red peppers.

  14. Oh Kitty, thank you for letting me hear your Connor is safe. Thank God for his safety and exit from Afghanistan. As I said before, I am so saddened for those brave young people who lost their lives. May God comfort their loved ones. I always enjoy seeing your lovey table settings and family fun photos. Love the pretty sunflowers and cup and saucer. I need to find sunflowers to celebrate September!

  15. Thank God for the blessed news.What adorable family and charming table. God bless you all.

  16. Hello dear. I learned from news from Brazil that all soldiers have already withdrawn from Afghanistan. I'm glad. Your table looks beautiful. And your recipe is wonderful. kisses

  18. I will continue to pray for our Gold Star Families, and I will also continue to pray for Connor. What a praise! You have very athletic grandchildren. I know you enjoy their games! :D Thanks for posting this recipe. It looks great! I'm also praying that the American citizens left behind will be able to come home soon.

  19. I'm so relieved your grandson is okay. Bless him for serving for our nation. I hope he can come back home soon. I can't believe it's September already and many of our grandkids are back in school. Such a pretty table setting and the egg pepper cups sound so tasty!

  20. This recipe looks delish, and reminds me of the egg and pepper sandwiches my dad made for us. I'm saving it! Have a great week, and so glad Connor is okay.

  21. Oh Kitty, praise be to God that Connor is safely out of Afghanistan! I am so thankful for him, you, his parents and siblings; I know you had to be worried sick for him. I'm so sad and so sorry for those who did not escape death there, and my heart goes out to all those families. What a shame and a waste of young, promising lives.

    Your other grands are growing up so quickly! I'm glad you shared pictures of them, too. Your table looks so pretty and cheerful, and the egg cups look just delicious! I hope you have a good weekend, Kitty, and thank you for sharing the news about Connor.

    Love and hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  25. Kitty, I am so thankful that your grandson is safe and sound. My heart breaks over what happened. I hope to catch up on all your recipes & posts soon. I did make your Apple Strudel and made a YouTube video on it but I misread the directions (my fault!) and though it was delicious, it looked awful! Here is the link if you want to watch it:

  26. Oh, how I praise God along with you that Connor is safe! God is SO faithful to hear and answer the prayers of His children. My heart breaks for those dear families of the fallen. May God comfort all who mourn.
