Directions

1. How to make the baked tuna stuffed peppers recipe: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Cut bell peppers in half and remove ribs and seeds. Cut one-half of the bell peppers into small cubes.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add olive oil. Add onion and cook for 1 minute. Add garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes before adding tomato and thyme and cook for another 3 minutes. Crumble canned tuna into the sauce and cook for 3 minutes more. Adjust seasoning and set aside.

4. Place bell peppers cut side up in a baking dish and divide the tuna fish mixture into each pepper, creating a hollow for the egg. Bake bell peppers and tuna mixture for 15 minutes (or more, depending on the size of the peppers). Cover with a foil or parchment pepper to avoid burning the peppers. Remove from oven.

5. Carefully break an egg and pour it into each pepper taking care not to overflow the egg. Repeat until each pepper is filled.

6. Season with fresh cracked black pepper and bake the tuna stuffed bell peppers for 15 minutes or until egg whites are set. Enjoy!
