Ingredients

4 tsp (20 mL) butter, divided
2 tbsp (30 mL) dry bread crumbs
6 eggs
1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried basil
Salt, pepper, and hot pepper sauce, to taste
1/2 cup (125 mL) EACH green and red peppers, cut into short strips
1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped onion

Directions

  1. In 9-inch (23 cm) square or 11 x 7-inch (27 x 18 cm) baking pan, melt 3 tsp (15 mL) butter in preheated 375°F (190°C) oven for about 3 minutes. Sprinkle bread crumbs evenly over melted butter. Bake for 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned.
  2. Beat together eggs, milk, basil, salt, pepper, and hot pepper sauce, just until blended.
  3. Melt 1 tsp (5 mL) butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add green and red peppers and onion. Cook and stir for 3 minutes.
  4. Add shrimp and egg mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally with a wide spatula. When eggs are almost set but still very moist (about the consistency of soft oatmeal), remove from heat and stir in half of the cheese.
  5. Immediately pour into baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and paprika. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until eggs are set.
  6. Cool before cutting into squares or bars. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 2 dozen appetizers.
