Fried Peppers with Eggs- Farm Journal

This is another recipe from America's Best Vegetables Recipes. Sometimes I have too many green peppers that I have to do something with before they go bad. Usually I just end up chopping and freezing them. This would be a good use. Next time I have a surplus I will make this for a sandwich brunch. I think I will add some onion though. This blurb from the recipe- "Try this Italian special for a main dish or for a sandwich filling."

Fried Peppers With Eggs

4 large green peppers

3 tablespoons oil

1/2 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 eggs

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon water

Wash peppers, cut off stem ends and remove seeds. Cut in strips. Add peppers to heated oil in skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring with a fork, until they are heated. Do not let peppers brown.

Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt, garlic salt and pepper. Lower heat; cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover, increase heat to medium and cook to desired tenderness. For best flavor, do not overcook.

Beat eggs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and water together slightly. Pour over peppers in skillet; do not stir mixture until eggs start to set; then, with fork or spatula, move mixture to allow all liquid to set. Do not let eggs overcook. Turn onto warm platter. Makes 4 main dish servings, or enough for 6 sandwiches.
