Cacio e Pepe scrambled egg pepper cups

Pepper cups are the best because you can really add whatever toppings you want to the middle and then turn them into a mini egg bake. These are really fun to make and you could use a tomato or an onion if you don’t have a pepper on hand.

  • 1 egg per pepper cup
  • 1 bell pepper
  • dash milk or half and half
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • lots of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • sea salt
  • red pepper flakes


  • Crack 3 eggs into a bowl and add truffle and milk. Whisk until smooth and combined.
  • Add butter to a hot pan and let melt. Meanwhile slice pepper and get your best slices ready. Add to the pan.
  • Pour eggs into pepper slices. Don’t worry if some egg spills out, just use a spatula to keep the egg near the pepper. When it cooks it will stay together.
  • Add tons of cracked pepper, salt and parmesan. Cover with a lid and cook for about 2-3 min on medium/ low heat.
  • Remove lid and flip. Cook for about another minute and add to a plate. Season with more parm, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
