Grit Stuffed Roasted Red Peppers are a great brunch or dinner idea. So simple to prepare and go great with eggs for brunch or a salad for dinner. Vegetarian and Gluten Free.
Hello Guys! Hope this day has brought you lots of sunshine and happiness thus far. Today I wanted to talk about Grit Stuffed Roasted Red Peppers.
I usually keep a variety of bell peppers around since they are one of my favorite veggies. And since I was looking for a new way to make them that I haven’t tried this is what I came up with.
While they were great for dinner, I did eat them the next day for brunch and they were equally as good leftover. So make a few extra for your brunch.
Bell peppers roasted in the oven with that nice charred flavor are good on their own but throw a little grits in the mix and it takes them to the next level.
It was kind of a new twist on grits or at least for me it was. You can make your grits anyway you like them but for these peppers I cooked my grits with vegetable broth instead of water. Hence, taking them to the next level of specialness 🙂
And after all everyone needs a little bit of special in their life whenever possible. Don’t you think so?
So I hope I’ve solved your dinner problems for tonight or even breakfast for tomorrow. You could make up a few extra peppers since they really are good leftover.
But that’s coming from the leftover queen. We tend to really dig into leftovers around our house.
