Country Pepper Omelet Pie Recipe

Country Pepper Omelet Pie Recipe

I developed this recipe combining potatoes and eggs over 30 years ago as a way to satisfy my family's hearty appetites. The green and red peppers really add a festive flair to the table.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped onion, divided
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3-1/2 cups frozen cubed hash brown potatoes
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/2 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 small green pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute 1/2 cup onion in oil until tender. Add the potatoes and half of the salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until potatoes are thawed and softened, about 5 minutes.
  • 2. Pat potatoes onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. deep dish pie plate. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, saute the peppers, parsley and remaining onion in butter until tender. Spoon over potato crust. Top with cheese. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, paprika and remaining salt and pepper. Pour over all.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
