You know what a pet peeve of mine is? When you google healthy egg recipes, but the author decides to tell you a story first about the farm they grew up on in Montana where they got the eggs. I promise not to do that to you today.

Let’s just get to the healthy egg recipes.

Increase the heat and add in the eggs. Pull the eggs across the skillet with a spatula. Repeat for about 3 mins until eggs are cooked. Then set aside.

Cut the peppers horizontally and remove the seeds, then stuff with the scrambled eggs and turkey.
