Jacques Pépin is a household name in kitchens around the world. With more than two-dozen cookbooks and 14 different popular cooking series on public television to his credit, including the Emmy Award-winning Julia & Jacques Cooking at Home, he has a newly published cookbook out to mark his final season after 28-years on television.

A self-professed lover of eggs, Jacques shares this recipe for Eggs in Pepper Boats from his new cookbook, Jacques Pépin Heart & Soul. It’s an easy-to-make dish that combines eggs, sweet peppers, cheese and cilantro—perfect for brunch or lunch.

Jacques uses the long, pale green banana peppers variety for this dish, but you can also substitute either poblano or cubanelle peppers if you prefer a little heat.
