  • 6Servings


  • 3 Tbs. olive oil

  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 7-oz. jar roasted red peppers, drained and thinly sliced
  • 4 large eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 325F. Coat 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.

Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, and sauté 5 minutes, or until they begin to brown. Add onion, and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat, and stir in red pepper slices. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and transfer to loaf pan.

Pour eggs evenly over potato mixture.
