Got this recipe out of cooking light. Piperade is a dish from the Basque region of France that always includes tomatoes and bell peppers. This version with eggs is similar to a frittata. Serve this dish with roasted potatoes

  2. Add bell peppers and garlic; saute 5 minutes.
  3. Add thyme, salt, ground red pepper, and tomatoes; cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook 7 minutes or until bell peppers are tender.

  5. Gently stir in eggs; cover, and cook 3 minutes or until set.
  6. Garnish with parsley, if desired.

I was very surprised at how well my family liked this dish. Although next time I will either use less ground red pepper or leave it out all together. Krisp69

Excellent flavor I used 1/2 tsp of cayenne flakes. Used fresh tomatoe (had a surplus on hand) it worked well even with cutting the recipe to 2 eggs. Love the touch of thyme. Because I only used 2 eggs my end result was thinner, more like an omelete but very delicious. Thanks for a great egg recipe Tish
