  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat until the foam subsides, and cook and stir the onion and tomato until the onion is translucent and the liquid from the tomato has evaporated, about 8 minutes. Transfer the tomato and onion to a bowl. Pour the beaten eggs into the cooked vegetables, and stir in tarragon, basil, salt, black pepper, and Cheddar cheese until thoroughly combined. Pour the egg mixture into the red bell pepper, and set into a small baking dish, standing upright. Cover the dish and pepper with foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the pepper is tender and the eggs are set, about 55 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Definitely enjoyed this one! Simple and yummy, used yellow bell peppers.

I also changed it up a little bit based on what I had. I substituted tarragon with thyme and feta cheese for cheddar. Goes great with a black bean soup! Thanks!

I added cooked sausage and followed another reviews advice by propping up bell pepper halves with tin foil. This was a hit with the family--and so much better than regular boring stuffed pepper ...
