La Piperade

This is an old recipe and it makes two very good portions!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • ½ cup (4oz)diced bacon
  • 4 green peppers, seeded and cut into small pieces
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeded
  • 4 free-range eggs, well beaten
  • Salt and black pepper


  1. Heat the butter and the oil in a frying pan.
  2. Cook the bacon, green peppers, and onion over medium heat until soft.
  3. Add the garlic and tomatoes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Raise the heat and with a fork, crush the tomatoes and this will evaporate the juices.
  6. When the vegetables are cooked, add the four well-beaten eggs to the pan.
  7. Immediately mix a fork until the eggs are sufficiently scrambled.
  8. Serve your La Piperade immediately.
  9. You can omit the bacon if you prefer but it does give a wonderful flavor. 
  10. Red peppers may be used but I think the green ones look beautiful with the red of the tomatoes.
