Peppers and eggs, Donna's way

This recipe comes straight from my sister, Donna, over at, My tasty treasures, you all know her from her bodacious blog, so funny, so offensive to those who have NO sense of humor and so delicious with all her food. She is not only a great cook, she is a great sister. She has always been there when I needed her, she would do anything for us(and often has), I call her 3-4 times a day, sometimes just to ask a question about something, usually food related, or to chit chat. We are usually on the same page about everything. My kids adore her, my husband loves to bust her chops and she gives back just as good. So think what you will from her blog, but know she is the best person I know!

On to the recipe, this is comfort food at its best and in the most simple form. All you need are the above few ingredients and a skillet and you can have a good for you, creamy and easy to adapt to different things, dinner, lunch or even breakfast.





Peppers and eggs, Donna's way







1 red bell pepper,seeded,sliced, cut in half

1 green bell pepper, seeded,sliced and cut in half

1 onion, sliced

olive oil

salt and pepper

4 eggs

1 tbsp butter

american cheese, 2-3 slices, rippes in thirds, vertically







Directions:



Preheat oven to 375.



Place peppers, onions and olive oil in pyrex dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Mix together. Toss with hands, they are your best kitchen tool.




Bake till peppers are softened slightly, but still hold shape. This can be done day before, hours before etc.Heat a large non stick skillet. Throw in 1 tbsp butter. Melt.




Add peppers, onion, and oil mixture. Heat through a little.





In a small bowl, whisk the eggs to a nice consistency. Add some more black pepper. Little milk or cream. Pour directly onto the peppers in the pan. Immediately, scatter cheese thirds all over the eggs. Let sit 1 minute or 2, then begin to toss gently in the pan.




Cook the scrambled eggs to your liking, I like mine on the well done side. Plate it up, sigh and dig in, you have come home. If this doesn't make you feel warm and cozy, then there is no hope for you. lol



Even better, you can serve this dish solo, or you can serve on sub, or with hash browns, bacon, etc. Can easliy double, triple recipe. Add more peppers if you like. Maybe at your next brunch make these with a side of salsa instead of plain ole scrambled eggs. People will love it, and you can thank Donna for it.


Here we are back in the day, in our nice Catholic school girl uniforms, anxiously awaiting our Dad's promotion . Weren't we cute? It's the uniform. It does wonders. I hope she is not too angry that I showed you all what nice Catholic school girls we were. Catholic School girls, if they only knew......

  4. I could really go for some of those peppers and eggs for my dinner tonight. I had to chuckle at the uniforms as they made me think back to St. Anthony's school. I never really minded the uniforms but they made us wear big clunky ugly brown tie shoes with them and knee socks. I use to ditch the hat and only put it on my head during Mass. Thanks for the memories:)

  6. Eggs look like a great breakfast and more! Catholic girls.. Funny! I grew up Protestant, and when we got to that age, we chased the Catholic girls, and the Catholic boys chased the Protestant girls- because of all the mis- information we all had been given!

  8. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare eggs. In the Boston area, this was often served in sub sandwiches, which is the way I make them. Also fabulous in wraps! Love this!

  9. Oh can I EVER relate to that pic of you and Donna! I went to Catholic school from first thru eighth grade on Long Island....Ugh!! When I went to a public high school I felt as if someone set me free! The peppers and eggs look great. I have a similar recipe I posted a while back. It's something I make often and one of my favorites for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

  16. How cute you both looked in your uniforms! I love Donna's blog -- she's a hoot and a half. Peppers and eggs are an Italian staple, and we make them often, mostly with leftover peppers and onions from another dish. They are so good on a fresh Torpedo roll from Italian People's Bakery (which I am no longer near, sob, sob).
