This was adapted from a recipe I found on the net, but I added julienne onion to the peppers. This is a meal in itself, or you could have a small slice with a meat dish. For those that like to have brunch, it's a bit different to your traditional quiche recipes. If you love cheese, you could add 1/2 cup of your favorite to the egg mixture, then pour over peppers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, sauté pepper strips and onions in margarine until soft but not limp.
  2. In a bowl, combine eggs, half-n-half, water, garlic, basil, and cayenne.
  3. Spoon peppers into unbaked pie shell.
  4. Pour egg mixture over peppers.
  5. Bake at 375°F for 50-55 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Really bland. This needs some Parma R. Cheese and / or ham and some rosemary/ herbs de provence. Alone and as is, this recipe is entirely disappointing and a waste of ingredients,

I made this yesterday for dinner and everybody just loved it! Very easy to make and great taste! I used two instead of only one onion and for the crust I made a dough out of the following ingredients: 250 g flour, 4 ts baking powder, 125 g low fat curd cheese, 75 ml milk, 75 ml sunflower oil and 25 g sunflower seeds. Because I didn't have any basil I simply used rosemary instead, which went very well with the peppers. Thanks VickyJ for sharing such an outstanding recipe!
