Butter 8 inch pie plate and arrange the vegetables in the bottom leaving five pepper rings out. Evenly divide the goat cheese on top of the vegetables in small clumps. Add the egg mixture to the pie plate covering the vegetables and cheese and then dress the top in a decorative way with the leftover pepper slices. You can then refrigerate and bake in the morning or bake immediately.
Set the oven at 350 degrees and bake 25-40 minutes. The egg should be mostly set before taking it out of the oven. You can then reheat when you want to serve or you can put a lid on the top of it to allow it to cool down finish setting. This can be served with a small salad for a brunch or a hearty bread and baked goods for breakfast.
