Roasted Peppers Pepperoni and Egg Recipe



Roasted peppers, pepperoni,  eggs and provolone is a great combination for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's even great in a sandwich. I love the flavors melded together. Anyone who loves Italian food will appreciate this one. When we were growing up this was a treat for us and made on someones birthday or special times. Today we are fortunate enough to afford all of the ingredients to eat this when ever we want but back then in the early 1960's it was tough with money. Using only stick style pepperoni, this would be peeled and sliced fresh then added to the eggs. I still will always make this the same way today, not using pre sliced kind in a package. Everything is freshly made. This is especially delicious in my wonderful memories of those great times with my Mom making this, I sure do miss her lots. She would pack this sandwich for us when we would head to the Saratoga race track for the day. I couldn't wait to eat lunch or summer when we would head off for our day together, great times, great food and the best memories!
Of course ours was between two pieces of  freshly made crusty Italian bread still warm from the bakery. Delicious!
