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.

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,
- 1 green pepper (cut in strips)
- 1 sweet red pepper (cut in strips)
- 1 yellow sweet pepper (cut in strips)
- 1 small onion (cut into strips)
- 9 inches pie crusts (unbaked)
- 1 tablespoon margarine
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup half-and-half
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- salt and pepper, to taste
