A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
Both Meghan and I absolutely hate throwing food away. I have bags of frozen shrimp shells in the freezer in case I want to make some shrimp stock or broth. I eat a lot of leftovers for lunch at work during the week. I plan meals for the week with leftovers in mind. So of course I was up for the challenge of preparing a leftover meal.
In this case, I had an open jar of piquillo peppers and about half a log of goat cheese. What could be better than goat cheese stuffed grilled piquillo peppers? They make a great appetizer or a side dish.
In a bowl, combine the goat cheese, some salt and pepper, and some oregano. Fill the peppers with the goat cheese mixture. In a sauté pan over medium heat, cook the peppers for a few minutes per side, to get a little char on them and melt the cheese, just a bit. Top with extra virgin olive oil, salt and more oregano.
