Roasted Sweet Peppers with Cheese, Bread, & Herbs


  • 8 medium sweet peppers
  • 1 cup goat cheese
  • 1 cup crusty bread cut into teeny tiny pieces or ground into crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves lemon thyme is extra delicious
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes or 1/4 teaspoon diced red chili


  • Halve the peppers and remove the seeds. I like to cut them in half so that the stem remains on a bit on each side because I think it looks pretty.
  • In a bowl, combine the goat cheese, bread crumbs, herbs, and chili flakes.
  • Use a fork to mix the contents together. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Lay the peppers on a baking sheet before scooping a bit of the mixture into the middle of each one.
  • Drizzle the peppers with a bit of olive oil before placing in a preheated 475 degree oven for 5-10 minutes, until roasted (but not mooshy!) and hot…OR...light up the grill so you can enjoy that delicious outdoor-cooking taste on your roasted sweet peppers. It makes them that much better.
