This rustic egg pie was invented for late summer’s vegetable bounty.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon or pancetta, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups chopped hot and sweet peppers
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste
  • 1 ½ cups cubed cooked potatoes
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place bacon and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until bacon is nearly crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Add peppers; cook and stir over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drain excess grease from the pan. Season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes; stir to combine.
  2. 2 Return pan to medium heat, add potatoes and stir until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Pour in eggs and slowly stir to form large, soft curds, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle feta cheese over the top and stir gently to incorporate.
  3. 3 Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  4. 4 Place pan under the preheated broiler and cook until the top is set and feta cheese is browned, about 5 minutes.
