Pepper and Eggs


Sometimes simple is best. This is a dish that my grandma used to prepare when I was little and it was something she usually had for lunch. She sometimes added potatoes to this. On Long Island a pepper and egg hero is fairly common to order in a pizzeria. Down here in Virginia, not so common. They also don't call them heros. They call them subs but God knows what the difference is. Anyone know? Whenever I go back to Long Island to visit family this is always on the top of my list to eat, along with, of course, Italian cookies....rainbows to be exact! Anyhow, when I am not certain what to eat for dinner and don't really feel like cooking this is the dish I whip up for myself. My son does not care for it and my husband does not like scrambled eggs, so that nixes that. Sometimes I will make it on a HERO (I prefer that term to sub), sometimes just plain....either way it's one of my favorites. Here is my simple version of it....

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 eggs, with a splash of milk
1 large green pepper
salt and pepper to taste

Heat up 1 tablespoon olive oil in medium skillet and add one pepper, cut up into slices
Cook for several minutes until pepper strips are soft
Add eggs mixed with milk and mix well with whisk
Salt and pepper to taste..

Enjoy!

That sounds good to try - I love to make easy and delicious meals like this for myself and my daughter when my hubby's out of town.

Thisis absolutely one of my most favorite things to eat. I usually use roasted red peppers and I add yellow american cheese. SO good and just like you I make them on heros or on a plate.

In CT they are grinders...but being a former NYer myself, they will always be heroes! This dish looks right up my husbands alley..he loves sausage and pepper heroes.

Nice with the peppers. I always have a plethora of them around so this would be a cinch to whip up.

I adore peppers and eggs! There's something about mixing the two together that produces a stellar flavor. Mmm, and I would certainly love this on a Hero!

I like knowing the background of this dish. I think it sounds very tasty. I've never tried a rainbow cookie before. I'm dying to!
