Roasted Sweet Peppers + Truffle Honey Goat Cheese

Welcome back to QCK!

Chrissy Teigen recently posted that she was sending out care packages to all her friends with the ingredients to make what she calls “the perfect bite”. That inspired me to share the recipe for my perfect bite with you all.

I used to work at a tapas restaurant in Minneapolis where we would make these goat cheese stuffed red peppers, served on a slice of bread with saffron aioli. They were so so good. Probably one of the best sellers. That restaurant has since rebranded, and I don’t know if they sell these anymore, but they’re so easy to make at home that I recreated them and am sharing the recipe.

I’m not usually a truffle fan, but somehow it just works here. The honey and sweet pepper balance perfectly with the tangy goat cheese and then I add a sprinkle of red pepper flake just for a kick.

Substitutions and Add Ons

  • Goat Cheese can be substituted for ricotta, cream cheese, mascarpone, or brie.
  • Truffle Salt can be substituted for truffle oil, just season accordingly.
