4 yellow bell peppers
1 cup frozen country style hash browns, thawed

3 large eggs
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend, plus more for garnish
3/4 cup whole milk
1/2 cup biscuit mix
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped green onion

My hubby and I are driving down from Delaware to Charslton S.C. in May for a week. Since Savanna is so close we are driving down to have lunch at Lady and Sons. Do we need reservations and when should we make them advance?

This is the best breakfast recipe that I have found in a long time. Just for yourself, or family or friends who drop over for breakfast or lunch, these are SSSooo good! It's basically a creamy, cheesy omlet in the bell pepper. I like to use orange and yellow peppers. If you overbake it, it will be a little direr, but also yummy! I prefer the creamy version, so I undercook it about a minute.

I love this recipe but I am not able to eat the peppers, so I stuff a large beefsteak tomato and cook it with the peppers for everyone else. Also the you can change the cheese to pepper jack to spice up the flavor.

I tried Paula's Brunch stuffed peppers, and they were OMG delicious! I only made two peppers (I used 1 egg for each pepper) and after I ate the first one, I thought about it for so long, I made another one the very next day! I like my eggs on the creamier side, so I didn't preheat the oven. Just popped them in the oven and set the timer. If you preheat, they will come out a little dryer. Both ways are good, it's just your preference. I sent a copy to all my friends! I am making a few for breakfast tomorrow...again, and again, and again! So Yummy! I also will try it with different cheeses like asiago, or bleu cheese, or maybe a Greek version with feta, diced tomatoes, oregano and spinach. Or a taco version. Or a western omlet version with onions, chop up the lids, and add bacon!

My daughter served this outstanding brunch dish for my birthday. We were all impressed with the presentation and it was very good. How convenient to have everything in one container -- the pepper.
