At Long Island pizzerias, it isn't uncommon to see a hot peppers and eggs hero on the menu. It's economical and satisfying. Cooks often just give peppers and onions a quickie sauté, leaving them raw-crunchy. As for the eggs, they work better when tender.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the broiler. Pop the hoagie rolls in the oven, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil them for 1 1/2 minutes or until toasted. If you allow for some random charring, you have soul. Set the rolls aside.

  • Heat a large, flat-sided skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Add the sausage to the pan and cook 3 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Remove the sausage from the pan.

  • Add the olive oil and swirl.

  • Add the bell peppers and the onion. Sauté for about 7 minutes, until the vegetables collapse and become tender. Add the sausage and the garlic.

  • Now, reduce the heat to low and sweat further for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Combine the eggs and egg whites in a bowl with a fork.

  • Pour the eggs into the peppers and onions.

  • Using a heatproof silicone spatula, gently scramble the eggs into the peppers and onions, scraping in long strokes along the bottom of the pan, folding with each scrape.

  • Turn off the eggs when they are still moist and glistening, after 1 minute. They'll carry over.

  • Spoon about 2/3 cup egg-pepper mixture into each of the rolls and serve hot. Immediately.
