Introduction

When I was fresh out of high school in Jersey (properly pronounced Joy’ zee) I was invited to dinner at a friend’s house. Her (Italian) mom was serving peppers and eggs. I was delighted; I rarely eat breakfast but love breakfast for dinner.

I was caught by surprise when I was served scrambled eggs with green peppers in a hoagie roll. It was absolutely delicious! It seems Philadelphians and Jerseyites can make a sandwich out of anything - and the bigger the better!

A Whole Buncha Years Later

A few years ago a colleague and I were having lunch at a local pizza joint. When I saw Peppers and Eggs on the menu I hopped on it. I hadn’t had one since 1975 and was looking forward to it. It was everything I remembered. When I went into the restaurant’s website recently, I noticed they’ve taken it off the menu. Bummer. Was I the only one who scarfed up this delicacy in an effort to recapture some salivary memories?

Whatever. All is not lost. I had some left over hoagie rolls and a hankerin’ for peppers and eggs so I went to town, figuratively speaking.

One thing you need to know about me as a cook is I’m always adding to recipes or improvising , depending on what I have on hand or sounds like it’ll be yummy. Some of my best dishes have come by combining flavors and textures to satisfy my don’t-bore-me palate.

Normally, I’ll consult the Internet or one of my many cook books to get the base of a recipe. I didn’t do so with this one. It’s a complete wing-it job on my part and it came out even better than my taste buds imagined.

I now share my version of Peppers and Eggs with you, my readers who love tasty food and may be in need of a new recipe. This is easy and is perfect for the working mom or the single person who wants to eat well but doesn’t have a lot of time or doesn’t want to go through the effort to cook a fang-dangled meal for one.

Since this was the first time I’d attempted to make Peppers and Eggs, I overestimated the amount of ingredients needed. I knew I wanted to add to the basic recipe and that I needed to fill a hoagie roll. What I ended up with was not enough for two, but too much for one. So, I wrapped up what didn’t fit in the hoagie roll and had the filling for breakfast the next day. Not a problem – I love leftovers!

However, I’ve pared this recipe down to one serving. You’ll have to multiply the quantities to fit the number of people you intend to serve.

Are you ready for salivary orgasm?

Let’s begin.

*A Word About Non-Stick Cookware

Teflon coated cookware has been on the market since 1954. At the time, and for many years thereafter, Teflon cookware seemed to be the greatest invention since sliced bread.

Teflon was actually invented by accident in 1938, by Dr. Roy Plunkett who was a scientist employed by DuPont. Does that raise a flag with you? Apparently, Plunkett was assigned to develop an alternative to refrigerants. He experimented with a gas called tetrafluorethylene and stored it in pressurized cylinders. It was later discovered the gas had solidified and turned into a waxy substance called polytetrafluorethylene resin (PTFE) and Teflon was born.

According to The American Cancer Society, “The major health effect linked with Teflon is the potential release of dangerous fumes from coated pans that are overheated. These fumes can cause flu-like symptoms in humans (a condition know as polymer fume fever) and can be fatal to birds.”

I don’t know about you, but I’d rather not take the risk. There are other forms of non-stick cookware on the market today that are better alternatives. Consider stainless steel, glass, ceramic, or green non-stick cookware. Throw out all your Teflon coated pots and pans, especially if they’re scratched.

What You'll Need

  • Non-stick skillet (*Teflon-free)
  • Bowl
  • Chopping board
  • Sharp knife
  • Fork or Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Cookie sheet

Ingredients

  • 1 whole wheat hoagie roll
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 slices sweet onion, diced
  • 1/4 green pepper, diced
  • 2 oz. button (white) mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 oz. fresh spinach, (about 2 handfuls), torn
  • 1 tbsp fat-free milk
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 oz. Asiago cheese, grated
  • salt and black pepper, to taste

How to Make Rockin' Peppers and Eggs

  1. Heat olive oil in non-stick pan on medium heat. Add onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Sauté until slightly softened but still crunchy.
  2. While the veggies are sauteing, break eggs into a bowl. Add the salt, black pepper, and milk to the eggs, whisking until well-blended and frothy. Set aside.
  3. Add spinach to the pan of veggies and let wilt. Gently mix with onions, peppers, and ‘shrooms.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Let it set until the eggs start to bubble, then gently scramble with a fork or spatula.
  5. Slice the hoagie roll lengthwise, making sure not to cut all the way through. Leave the ends in tact, as well. You want to create a boat for the egg mixture. Place roll on baking sheet.
  6. Spoon the eggs and veggies into the hoagie roll.
  7. Top with grated Asiago cheese.
  8. Bake in oven at 350° until cheese has melted.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
  10. Cut in half, plate, and enjoy!

Healthy Tips

Always use fresh, organic ingredients if possible. I’ll bet many of you can pull most of the items needed for this dish from your back yard gardens. Here, I must apologize. I didn’t have fresh mushrooms when I made this recipe, so I used a can of button mushrooms that I had on hand for instances such as this.

Although this recipe may seem to have high caloric content, remember that the calories in eggs are packed with protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Extra virgin olive oil is an excellent source of omega-3s as well. All in all, this dish is very healthy.

The next time you’re in a pinch and don’t know what to make for dinner, try this recipe. It’s quick, easy, and oh so delicious!

Happy eating! (Please go back to the top and rate this recipe. Much appreciated!)

Peace,

Bravewarrior

I've had eggs and peppers, but never in a sandwich. Why not, right? It sounds delicious to me, and I just happen to know where I can get some eggs. :)

I will try this. With summer coming on we are eating fewer 3 course structured meals. With a small salad we cold even split the sandwich. Sounds so yummy.

I often make scrambled eggs with the same ingredients as your recipe, but have not put it on a hoagie - good idea. I think I will have this for supper tonight. Loved reading your hub.

Up, U, A and H+

Bill, I know how you don't really cotton to recipe articles, so having you be my first responder is an honor!

I almost mentioned you and your hens in my article, but I held back because I'm hoping people searching for recipes (as I do) will find this. But know you were totally in my thoughts as I wrote this.

Try it in a sandwich. It really is delicious.

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Susan, my additions made this simple sandwich much more delicious. I swear, I should open a restaurant selling nothing but Philly Cheesesteaks and Rockin' Peppers and Eggs!

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Mom, it is delicious. I really don't have the desire to cook a full course meal just for myself. This recipe actually gave me two meals, which is fine by me, and it didn't take a lot of time.

Marie DellaSandro's mom first introduced me to this sandwich. Do you remember Marie?

Hi Sha... Need to be trying this one... bookmarked. Eggs and veggies are a favourite here. Most often it is an evening meal anyway...

I'm glad you find this worthy of bookmarking, Rolly. I love breakfast for dinner. Or anytime. Whenever I meet friends for lunch I hope it's a restaurant that serves breakfast all day long. About all I need to get me going in the morning is coffee and a nice hot shower. I can't even think about food until I've been up and about for a few hours.

I also like scrambled eggs w/ peppers, onions, mushrooms for dinner! I have had toast on the side, but never had this meal in a hoagie...that is a good idea! I'm on it....soon. Already had dinner tonight. :)

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Try it Linda. I don't know if it's an Italian thing or a Jersey thing, but it's awesome. For a while Positano's Cafe had it on the menu. No longer. I don't guess there are enough Jerseyites in Central Florida to know what Peppers and Eggs is when it appears on the menu. You'd think that it shows up under "sandwiches" it would ring a bell.

Anyway, it's delicious.

Gorgeous food. Love to have spinach, cheese and mushrooms in an omelet.

Don't mind putting and omelet in a sandwich either.

Oh, Sha, I just love breakfast for dinner too, and you had me from the get-go on this one! I love each ingredient and have had omelets with all of the ingredients before, but never on a hoagie (I love hoagies too). I love egg sandwiches too, but only put scrambled eggs, mayo and pepper on toast. This one looks like it will satisfy the hungriest of persons.

Thank you for sharing this one, and I will give it a try.

And I did remember to vote.

I almost wanted to go into my computer to take a bite of your sandwich ... for it looks so yummy.

Bless you

Looks great. I sneak an egg sandwich from time-to-time. Here scrabled eggs are more likely wrapped in a flour tortilla with green onions and ham bits.

This is my kind of food Shauna. I have had scrambled eggs with peppers before but this recipe is slightly different and looks great. I haven't had it in a big role before but will be sure to try it. Thanks for sharing. Great hub.

Hi Sha what a lovely quick tasty idea! Never heard of this in a bun before only had scrambled eggs with either onions, cheese, mushrooms and peppers or a combo of them. Thanks for the info on Teflon too, always good to know health issues with cookware. Up all the way and 5 star recipe here!!

rebeccamealey 19 months ago from Northeastern Georgia, USA

Hmmm.Sounds good to me Shauna. Not a dish around here, but I am very willing to try peppers and eggs. I'll just throw in some cheese grits on the side!

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Poetryman, I love spinach too. That's why I added it to this recipe. It really i s a tasty and healthy addition.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Faith, thanks for the shares. I'm not sure if the original recipe is Italian or Jersey. When I saw it on the menu at the little Italian restaurant where my friend and I had lunch, I just had to order it. The basic sandwich is delicious, but this one has much more flavor. I hope you try it.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Mike, that sounds good too. Usually when I make an egg sandwich, it's a fried egg and melted cheddar on either pumpernickel toast or an English muffin.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

John, I'm surprised at how many people have never had peppers and eggs this way. I'm thinking it must be a northeast US dish. That's where I lived when I was first introduced to it. I've only had it one other time since I moved to Florida. That is, until I made this version.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

It's nice to see you, Suzie. How are you feeling? I really appreciate you stopping by and leaving a comment.

Yeah, Teflon is not a good choice. When it first came out it was made with a gas called PFOA, which is a carcinogen. The government has since banned it use in cookware. However, if anyone still has an old set of Tefal in the kitchen, chances are good that it contains the toxic material.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

There you go, Rebecca. Cheese grits on the side would be good, although this sandwich is so filling you may not be able to finish your plate.

Have had omelets with these ingredients, but never a sandwich.

Sounds like a perfect dinner to me!

Thanks,

Good stuff, those peppers and eggs. Sounds similar to the omelets Mr. B makes me for Saturday mornings, but he likes to use Velveeta slices because they melt so well. Then we put hot salsa on top. Back before I had to go gluten-free, sometimes he would put peppers and onions in my scrambled eggs, then I'd make a sandwich on toast. Loved it with mayo.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Your toast sandwich sound yummy, MizB. So does the salsa-topped omelet, although I don't care for Velveeta. I found the Asiago melted nicely and didn't take long at all. I grated it myself very finely, which is why it melted quickly.

Hi Shauna-this recipe made me salivate. I've had green pepper and onions in scrambled eggs, but never in a hoagie bun. What a great idea! You did a great job with all your capsules and information. Voted up and hit all buttons except funny and sharing.

Question for you: how do you do the calorie capsule-I still don't know how to do that. Also, how do you do that cool capsule where you talk about Teflon. Is that a text capsule that you put on the right and hit the blue square? Just really impressed with all the information on this recipe. Great job my friend :)


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Linda, you've got it correct about how I did the Teflon capsule. Simply bring in a text capsule and move it to where you want it to appear. You can only turn on the background if the capsule is placed to the right,

As far as the calorie table, bring in a table capsule. You can add as many rows as you want. I've written two recipe hubs so far. I think one of the most time consuming parts of prepping to post, is looking up the calorie/fat contents of each ingredient. Much of it can be obtained from packaging, but in the case of fresh veggies and deli rolls, they have to be looked up.

I'm glad you enjoyed this, Linda. And thanx for the questions!

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Awesome. Thank you, Linda! You know I never did Google the recipe for peppers and eggs as I've had it prior to my own concoction. I'll have to do that. Maybe one of the recipes will tell me where the dish originated from. I couldn't find anything on its origin when I was writing this article. I'm really curious to learn if it's an Italian thing or a Jersey thing.

Hi - I recently took a hankering to eggs and have always liked peppers so love this recipe. I once had an Italian landlady who cooked the most scrumptious Italian recipes. I will make this soon, as it looks delicious. I may not use the roll but use it as a regular meal. Pinning Blessings, Audrey


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Brakel2 I love seeing new faces in my corner. Thank you for coming by!

What makes this recipe different from an omelet or fancied-up scrambled eggs is the fact that it's served in a hoagie roll. I hope you try it that way. I was very pleasantly surprised the first time I was served a peppers and eggs sandwich. The roll gives it a whole new depth of texture and flavor. Unless you don't eat bread, I highly recommend you try the recipe as outlined.

Ghost32 19 months ago

Hm...I'm not a super fan of peppers 'n' eggs, but Pam is. I'll have to ask her if she could consider them in a hoagie roll. Bread (of all sorts) sometimes gives her fits, getting stuck under her dental implants and proving difficult if not impossible to get back out of there.

bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Mar, I had no doubt you'd be familiar with this sandwich. Sandwich sage? Naw, just pulling on some of my roots. Philly folk love their sandwiches. When I moved to Florida and saw how they make sandwiches here, I was astounded. There's more bread than meat (or whatever goes inside). It's supposed to be the other way around. Gotta set people straight!


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Ghost, a hoagie roll would definitely give Pam problems. She can still enjoy the flavors without the bread, though.

That's what I love...a friend willing to share everything!! "Good fats?" I always laugh when I read all about nutrition and comments of that nature. Yes, there are the good and bad fats. Problem, why do the good fats look so disgusting hanging off our waistlines??? "I know this may LOOK like I'm over weight, but all that blubber you see is from GOOD fats!!".....LMAO! No wonder we get along Sha.....we have the same method of reasoning!

Ah yes, Sha.....despite whatever you may have heard to the contrary.....God does have a sense of humor. Weren't we just discussing this a few days ago......? Our body transformations as we "progress in years".......(sounds SO much better than "aging") is all a part of the plan and scheduling.....or AS IT SHOULD BE. Mother nature (that bitch) just does her thing and we're supposed to like it.

Oh yeah.....the other reason we don't look at all like Raquel Welch, Joan Collins, Linda Evans & Bo Derek?? It's about two and half million in cosmetic surgery. I hate them all.

Hi Shauna,

OMG these are so good! We've served this at our house since we first discovered them during our short residency in Philadelphia and this meal has never left our menu. It's delicious! And you can make adjustments to it per your finicky eater's preference (we had 2 of those at the table!).

I'll have to share my boneless chicken cutlet and stuffing "sammich" recipe with you when I dig it out. We're moving again very very soon, don't know where yet, but will let you know when we are settled. My huge recipe box (which never gets lost) goes everywhere with us. I'll be sure to get a copy to you.

Joe adapted my recipe for boneless pork chop cutlets and stuffing and it is just as good. The type of roll is key, if you don't have a good roll, the best recipe can be ruined. LOL Have a great Mother's Day if I don't talk to you by then.

bravewarrior 19 months ago from Central Florida Author

Lizzy, in doing more research on this dish I discovered it was developed by Italians to be served during Lent when Catholics are not supposed to eat meat. Once upon a time ago Catholics were to abstain from eating meat every Friday. Anyway, this dish most often appears on the menu in Italian restaurants during Lent.

The dish is very easy to make. I hope you try it for a nice change of pace the next time you want to have breakfast for dinner.


DzyMsLizzy profile image

DzyMsLizzy 19 months ago from Oakley, CA

Uh-huh--I see! And I learned many years ago that the real history on the banning of meat during Lent and on Fridays was not about the reasons stated by the church powers, but about the fishmongers complaining of insufficient business. Apparently, they had friends well-placed in the Vatican, hence the whole eating fish on Friday and during Lent came about.

And as radio host Paul Harvey used to say, "...and now you know the rest of the story." ;-)

I found the comments about meat, fish, and Lent amusing. I didn't know that, but I will say that Mr. B's late father owned a fish market in Memphis, and he loved Lent and Fridays.


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 18 months ago from Central Florida Author

Miz B, I would imagine those were his busiest times. Peppers and Eggs are still a big seller in restaurants during Lent. In fact, from what I read, that's the only time you'll see the dish offered in many Italian restaurants.

This sounds and looks delicious! I love peppers and eggs together but have never tried them on a sandwich. This is a must try for brunch very soon! Up, useful and pinning!

Sheila, I'm glad you're going to try this. If you like peppers and eggs on a plate you'll love this sandwich.

This sounds really delicious. I love eggs, and we are growing peppers in our garden this year. Something tells me I will be trying this recipe in the very near future. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Jeannie, this would certainly give you good use of your peppers. Something tells me you'll need beaucoup ideas on how to use them!

Where to begin without repeating everything that's already been said. Of course eggs for dinner, scrambled eggs with additions, and now thanks to you, on a hoagie roll! What a perfect idea.

Paula we are not old, just age challenged! Maria, how about eating while we're walking...hey, I could start a new trend. BTW my salivary glands are waiting for those eggs and orgasm!

I also liked your explanation of Teflon. Do they really still use it?

Voted up, useful, awesome, interesting, five star, and shared.

Mary, they've modified (eliminated) one of the chemicals that go into the teflon that coats cookware. However, I still wouldn't buy it. If you have any of the old stuff around, get rid of it, especially if some of the coating has been scratched off from wear.

Salivary orgasm is my term for any food that really, really pleases my taste buds!

I live alone, and recipes like this one really appeal to me. I oftentimes have "breakfast for dinner", so I'll certainly try this recipe.

Voted UP, etc. and shared.

Mary, my son lives with me but he's rarely home for dinner, so I pretty much cook for myself. This is the perfect recipe for one. I love breakfast for dinner, too. Another simple meal for one.

I give you a 10 on this one. I have made peppers and scrambled eggs(minus the bread, of course), yet the added ingredients give this tantalizing feast a joie de vivre not yet experienced. I shall be making it soon, and thinking of you with every bite.

I was in the Philippines last month and we'd always have eggs for breakfast. Of course, in the traditional Filipino way...we eat it with fried rice. :) I could have prepared this there for breakfast or dinner, it doesn't matter.

Well, I am clipping (and sharing) this recipe for future and will come back to let you know how it turns out.

BTW, I didn't know "Joy’ zee" is the proper way to say Jersey. I was just in New Jersey last week. Now I know, I'd sure to pronounce it ""Joy’ zee" in my next trip.

Love from the sky~

bravewarrior 17 months ago from Central Florida Author

Cris, I hope you didn't take the proper pronunciation of Jersey seriously. Although, in certain parts of the state, that's how it's articulated. I lived in South Jersey once upon a time ago and that's pretty much how the word was spoken. In South Jersey many of the residents have a Philly brogue, while the northern part of the state sounds more like New Yorkers.

I look forward to hearing from you again once you try this dish. Enjoy!

Shauna this sounds very tasty...I would use red or orange peppers as green peppers do NOT like me.

Thank you for sharing this...I can almost smell it cooking and I am very hungry as it is early and I have not dined yet

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps shared pinned g+ tweeted

Patti, I'm sure red or orange peppers would be just as delicious. I wonder why green peppers bother some people but the other colors don't. Do you know?

fpherj48 14 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

Sha...I happen to know why.....green peppers have a higher amount of chloraphill, which certain people have a high sensitivity to, which can cause gastro-intestinal issues.

Don't say I never gave you anything!!


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 14 months ago from Central Florida Author

That's probably why they have a stronger flavor than red and yellow peppers as well, Paula. I prefer the green ones because of their taste. To me, the others don't have much of a punch at all.

Thanx for answering my question my friend!

This is going on our dinner menu this week. I love the combination and can already taste the results. This should be pretty interesting and healthy too.

Dianna, I love peppers and eggs. They serve it in restaurants in Jersey all the time but I've only seen it here in Florida once in all the forty years I've lived here. I must admit the embellishments I added to the original recipe turned out wonderfully tasty. I hope you family enjoys it. Let me know....
