This Mexican-inspired breakfast dish is very filling and delicious! I also love to have the excuse to start the day with a bit of spice, too! The downside is that breakfast for me is usually rather a quick affair, and this takes time. So I tend to have this special meal at the weekends – or even at lunchtime!
How to Make Spicy Stuffed Poblano Breakfast
Prepare the poblano by removing the stem. Then cut down one side, open it up, and remove the seeds. Make any extra cuts you need to get the poblano to open out flat.
Spray the inside of the pepper with olive oil spray then roast on a baking sheet in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes. Towards the end of the cooking time, scramble some eggs with a little heavy cream. When the poblano is cooked, remove the blistered skin if required. Personally it doesn't bother me very much! Load up the poblano with the scrambled eggs and add some shredded cheese.
Return to the oven for a few minutes until the cheese has melted. Season with black pepper and garnish with fresh cilantro and some extra red pepper flakes!
I love how the poblano softens and combines perfectly with the creamy scrambled eggs and cheese. The cilantro may seem like one thing too many for breakfast – but I personally love the pop of fresh herbs!Spicy Stuffed Poblano Breakfast #lowcarb #lowcarbbreakfast #lowcarbrecipes Click To Tweet
