Qurator's: Hive Top Chef! | PEPPERS! - Perfect Pepper Trio

in hive-102880 •  15 days ago  (edited)

I'll admit to being a sucker for punishment when it comes to any foodie challenge, but fun I sure had when I started playing with Peppers in my kitchen this weekend thanks to Qurator's: Hive Top Chef! | PEPPERS!

Beautiful Bell peppers are also known as Sweet Peppers and belong to the Capsicum family. They come in the most gorgeous colours - red, yellow, orange, green, white, and purple.


I used red and yellow Bell Peppers and cooked up a little storm in the kitchen, but no one complained!


#1 - Eggs in Pepper Basket

IMG_0250.GIF @lizelle ! you won the lucky draw of the M week ! 😊

Ah such a sweet wonkie @barbara-orenya, thank you;)

Wow that's super clever!!!!! Peppers - or capsicum, as we call them in Australia, are cheap at the moment. I never though of using them like that!!!!

Thank you @riverflows, you won't be sorry, it really paired well with all of these and one can really use any veg or even smoked meats or smoked cheese in the filling, would love to see what you come up with;)

How cool are these pops of peppers? These are so classy! I have no idea where you get your ideas from, but, I love them!!

You really hit this one with the egg and quiche out of the park! The other, I can only imagine, but, I would be willing to try it!

On top of everything else, your photographs are amazing!

Thank you for the lovely comments & share @dswigle! Granny Google is the source of much inspiration and ideas grow from there as the old brain starts ticking over; it also helps if one enjoys getting creative in the kitchen ;)

Oh dear!!! @lizelle you are the best! Or I would say, the beast in cooking with all its art and plating!!! 😍 Super love this post dear.

I would definitely, definitely try one of these. The eggs in pepper basket is such a lovely idea!!! I love that! But the pancakes are good as well! I never thought that it could be done. You opened my eyes to endless possibilities of cooking peppers, as we have it in our garden.

Thank you so, so much! ❤❤❤

I enjoyed seeing your eggs in tomato baskets, really a clever breakfast dish! Thank you so very much for the lovely comments, really appreciate it;)

Very inventive and clever, Lizelle! Some of those would also make great additions to a canape platter!

Very true, would make excellent canapes, I never thought of that; one could actually use these Pepper baskets for many other dishes.
Thank you for that!

Any time 🤗

Gosh this is beautiful. All the years I ate eggs and never did things like this. Your creative and vibrant dish is inspiring.

Ah thank you @carolynstahl, I'm sure you could come up with a good vegan pepper basket dish;)
