Pepper and Egg Sandwich Recipe

The Pepper and Egg Sandwich has always been a “cozy” kind of sandwich for me. Something about the simplicity of ingredients, the warm bread…is just comfort food in my opinion. Typically you find this sandwich during Catholic Lent, with only Pepper & Egg ( just like the name ) and usually Green Peppers.  As much as I love the traditional combo, I wanted to give it a twist of my own. I always love the combination of Bell Peppers & Onions. Using a variety of colorful peppers helps make this Sandwich so much prettier to look at! Fresh Herbs always add life to any cooked dish, plus throw a little butter in to the mix.. and vooowala! With just a few simple twists, I am confident you and your family will love these any time of day or year.  Enjoy!!
