Stuffed peppers get an early morning-makeover with bacon, eggs, and cheese. They also make a lovely lunch paired with a side salad or sauteed greens. Large cored tomatoes, halved acorn squash or baked potatoes make wonderful substitutes for the peppers. If you have other fresh herbs on hand, feel free to sprinkle some on - dill or cilantro can add tasty flavor.
