Also known as Italian frying peppers, Cubanelle peppers are large and blocky. They are light green in appearance and they mature red. The thin walls of this pepper make it an excellent choice for frying. This pepper is not hot. Recipe from Binnurs Turkish Cookbook, April 2005. Update: due to reviews I have added to seed the tomatoes and squeeze slightly to remove excess juice.

Nice and healthy variation of 'ordinary' scrambled eggs. I used a banana pepper. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the olive oil and cubanelle peppers in a large pan. Cook for about 2 minutes over medium-high heat.
  2. Take the seeds out of the tomatoes and squeeze slightly to remove excess juice. Then chop and add the tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for another 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Mix the eggs with the cream in a bowl, and pour into the pan. Then add the feta cheese. Keep stirring periodically until the eggs are done. Make sure you dont overcook, otherwise it will be dry.
  4. Serve with bread.
