Potato-pepper-egg sandwich is a popular sandwich in Chicago, usually served for breakfast. It is believed to have its origins in the Italian community of Chicago. The sandwich is easy to make. It uses bread as a main ingredient (usually Italian bread or any other types, such as a bagel, a bun or any roll bread). The peppers and potatoes are sauteed in olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic. The cooks scramble up some eggs that were previously seasoned with salt and pepper, and add a good quantity of cheese such as Romano or Parmesan. The sauteed green peppers and potatoes are folded into scrambled eggs and placed on the bread. One can often have this sandwich with sauce on top, such as the well known hot Giardiniera sauce. Due to the fact that not everyone is a potato lover, the sandwich can exclude them, or serve them aside. The sandwich is a great vegetarian dish, though sometimes bacon may be added.

Potato-pepper-egg sandwich is a great warm sandwich, often served in many restaurants and fast food chains from Chicago.
