Packed with flavor, this simple scramble delivers a satisfying meal for one. Cubanelle peppers, also known as the Cuban pepper or Italian frying pepper, are ideal for this dish since their thin walls cook quickly and their sweet, mild flavor pairs beautifully with the other ingredients. You can also substitute half a small red bell pepper for the Cubanelle to keep this entrée on the milder side or use a jalapeño or habanero to amp up the heat. The addition of the potatoes, which are quickly cooked in the microwave before going into the skillet, gives the eggs a rich mouthfeel and flavor. Serve this for any meal of the day, when you’re in need something quick—it’s ready in about 20 minutes.
