Easy Bacon, Veg & Egg-Stuffed Peppers

This delicious dish looks fancy, but is very easy to make. It works well as a light and tasty dinner or a lovely weekend brunch. The flavors are rich - sweet and mildly smoky – but other than the bacon, the meal is low in calories, especially if you use egg whites instead of whole eggs. Because it’s essentially veggies stuffed in veggies, it’s also a double serving in one dish – another example of “layering” to meet your daily rainbow quota.
