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..
