When I do my grocery shopping, I always buy a lot of peppers. I save some fresh bell peppers for salads, and I roast the rest.

How to roast peppers?

I usually roast my peppers on a gas grill. The first step is to preheat an outdoor grill to 450F. Then I roast the peppers for about 15 minutes. I turn them every 3-5 minutes, so they don’t burn. Once they are roasted, I put them in a pot with a lid for 5-10 minutes. That way they steam and the peel falls off easily.

You can also roast peppers in a regular or convection oven. Preheat the oven to 400F and place the peppers on a baking sheet. Rotate the peppers every 5-10 minutes until they are charred on each side. Then put them in pot with a lid or a zip lock bag to steam them.

One of the easiest ways to roast peppers is on a gas burner. Use tongs to hold each pepper on top of the flame and rotate until the pepper is nicely charred.

If you roast your peppers in advance you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days.

For this recipe I used red, yellow and orange peppers. You can use whatever peppers you like. If you prefer you can add a spicy pepper to make this recipe a bit more exciting.

I prefer to use cow feta in brine. This is my favorite type of feta because it is creamy and milder in taste. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find. I buy it from an international store, or I order it online. You can use whatever feta you have and like. I don’t recommend using feta that is already crumbled, because it has additives and anti-caking agents.

I use a cast iron pan to prepare this recipe, but if you are afraid that the eggs might stick use a nonstick pan.

When you prepare this recipe, you can either beat the eggs before adding them to the pot or scramble them in the pot. In my family we always scramble them in the pot.

I add the feta when the heat is off. I do this because I like big chunks of feta in my scramble. You can cook the crumbled feta a little bit if you want it to melt.
