Roasted Peppers: A Colorful & Healthy Appetizer!

Here is a quick tip from The Dads on Roasted Peppers!

Recently we were buying sweet peppers for a couple of our recipes. We noticed the store had on sale the Trio bag of peppers in different colors. We decided that even though we didn’t need all of those peppers, it was still cheaper than buying the two individually.

What to do with the extras you ask?? We sprinkled some extra virgin olive oil, Kosher salt and pepper… and roasted them in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Next, we placed them on a platter and served them at room temperature.

Roasted Peppers can be great make for a great side dish, but we served them as an hors d’oeuvre with the cocktails!

Our guests loved them! Who would have thought something so simple and healthy could be such a big hit?!
