As much as I love to cook, I’m always looking for time-saving shortcuts and one of my absolute favorite shortcuts is using already peeled and hard-boiled eggs for my recipes.

It irritates me to no end when I boil and peel them myself and a big chunk of egg peels off along with the shell. It’s maddening! When I buy already peeled eggs, I don’t have to worry about any of the waste, mess or fuss, and I can purchase Almark Hard-Boiled Eggs at Sam’s Club in a 12-pack value sized package.

Not only are the already peeled and ready to eat eggs perfect for my recipes and meal prep, they’re great to have on hand for protein snacks and post-workout fuel-ups!

And here’s how to take this delicious shortcut and make ham and egg stuffed peppers.

Slice and/or dice a dozen hard-boiled eggs. (I do a combination of slicing and dicing when I make mine.)

Cut six red and green bell peppers in half lengthwise and boil them until they reach your desired tenderness. Shake off any excess water and place them cut side up on a baking tray.

While the peppers are boiling, prepare a ham and ricotta mixture for the filling.

Toss in some chopped fresh spinach leaves.

And add the sliced and diced hard-boiled eggs.

Carefully mix all that goodness together.

And stuff each of the peppers with an equal amount of filling.

Bake the peppers in the oven, sprinkling on a little bit of shredded cheese in the last five minutes.
