  • 6 slices bacon or pancetta, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 ½ cups chopped hot and sweet peppers

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste

  • 1 ½ cups cubed cooked potatoes

  • 12 eggs, beaten

  • 2 ounces crumbled feta cheese


  1. Place bacon and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook until bacon is nearly crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Add peppers; cook and stir over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drain excess grease from the pan. Season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes; stir to combine.

  2. Return pan to medium heat, add potatoes and stir until warmed through, about 2 minutes. Pour in eggs and slowly stir to form large, soft curds, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle feta cheese over the top and stir gently to incorporate.

  3. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  4. Place pan under the preheated broiler and cook until the top is set and feta cheese is browned, about 5 minutes.
