This recipe is from Mary co-chef at the Border Grill in Las Vegas- who kindly shared this recipe with us says,"This baked casserole makes the perfect brunch. It pairs peas. garlic and basil with peppers,eggs and serrano ham."
She likes to serve it with country bread drizzled with olive oil and toasted or grilled.
She cooks the pea mixture ahead of time so all she has to do is warm it, crack the eggs, arrange the sliced peppers , and pop it in the oven.
I think you will enjoy this recipe
as much as we do!
Thanks Mary.
