Eggs with peppers


This is an interesting derivation from Hungarian eggs, and is something that can be made from items found in most family fridges.  This type of home cooking always reflects not just the tastes of the region, but also the most abundant and cheap ingredients.  While the recipe calls for green bell peppers (capsicum), red or yellow can be used.

Ingredients Serves 4-6
Vegetable oil 3 tbspns
Onion, minced 1 medium
Garlic, chopped 1 clove
Green bell pepper, chopped 1
Bacon chopped 50 gm

Cooking method

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add onion, garlic, bacon, and bell pepper.  Sauté until beginning to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.  Cover and simmer very slowly over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Add eggs and cheese, mixing well.  Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle with chopped coriander and serve immediately.
