Broccoli & Feta Quiche Stuffed Peppers

This Quiche stuffed peppers recipe is a great alternative to a pastry Quiche.  The sweet baked peppers make a delicious colourful case to the baked egg filling.

Although I’ve seen this as a breakfast recipe, the dish takes 45 minutes to bake and I certainly can’t wait that long for breakfast.  So we had this for lunch along with a salad.   It was like a yummy combination of roasted pepper and frittata for me.

For the filling, I chose broccoli and feta but you could use any other fillings.  Spinach would be a great choice.  Perhaps along with some blue cheese too? Just get creative, and bake your mini pepper cased Quiche!   We ate this straight out of the oven but I can imagine that they would be delicious cold too.  Perhaps for a picnic.  Another idea would be to bake this ahead and reheat for a brunch.  

I used red and yellow peppers as they are sweet.   I personally only prefer the green peppers chopped up raw in a salad.  If you were filling the peppers with a spicy meat then perhaps green peppers would go well.

    Has anyone tried to use cocktail tomatoes instead of peppers? I’m thinking of using them for hors-d’oeuvres.
