Great Depression Peppers and Eggs

Forget Susan Boyle, the ugly-duckling singer who has set the Internet on fire for her stunning performance on "Britain's Got Talent".

Clara even has a cookbook in the works, and she has recently released a DVD featuring her YouTube videos plus some recipes she has not posted online.

Meat was always in short supply (and very expensive) during the Great Depression, so eggs and beans were used as alternate sources of protein. Here is Clara whipping up a batch of Great Depressoin Peppers and Eggs:

  1. That looks so yummy. I make peppers and eggs to, but I didn't add as many peppers as you did... I'll have to give it a try..
