Pepper Egg-in-a-Hole

There are sooooooo many ways to eat eggs, and it’s my mission to try them all! This low-fat, low-carb is an absolutely delicious way to eat eggs and you won’t even miss the bread. All you have to do is assemble and the oven does the rest. This would be a fun meal to make for brunch guests, a quick and easy dinner for two or a fun activity to make with kids!
