Keto Pepper Boat Eggs
Famous French Chef Jacques Pepin is the creator of this recipe...He had no idea he was low carb before it was popular!
- 2 poblano peppers
- 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup cheese
- 2 oz ham
- 1/4 tsp salt
Slice a side off each pepper keeping stem intact and creating a pepper boat. Carefully slice out the seeds and inner ribs of the pepper. Chop up the remaining lid of the pepper.
Heat a skillet with 1/2 cup water over medium heat. Place pepper boats and extra chopped pepper in simmering skillet. Cover skillet and steam for 5 minutes.
Chop up the ham. Remove the lid from your peppers. Sprinkle the well of each boat with a little ham and cheese.
Depending on how large your pepper wells are you will crack 1-2 eggs into the pepper well. Sprinkle with remaining ham and cheese. Check the water content of the pan as you need just a touch of water for the eggs to steam.
Cover the skillet to steam for another 3-5 minutes depending on how done you want your eggs. There may be a little extra water/moisture in pan when done cooking.
Spoon out a pepper onto your plate using a slotted spoon.
