Stuffed Pepper Quiche

I reallllly don’t like making my own crust. Anyone with me on this? Breakfast for dinner is supposed to be easy!

Healthy store-bought crust is pretty much non-existent, so why not forgo the crust altogether and stuff it in a pepper? Think of your favorite omelet, whisk the ingredients together, throw it in the pepper and bake. Easy peasy!

You know what’s not easy? Taking food photos. Especially after daylight savings time! If the sun is down, you’re out of luck. Food in unnatural light is not pretty. Not to mention trying to style it, find pretty little dishes, come up with props, etc. I just want to eat it! Work in progress.
