Holland Peppers

well today at the market holland peppers were on special 4 for a dollar... so I bought 8

Now I need to figure out what to do with them as they were really not part of my plans.

I was going to just roast em but then I bought the bacon to break in the cast iron DO (see other posting) and so I figured maybe I could comine the two....

So Holland Peppers & fancy Bacon

In the house is Brown Rice, Cheddar and Jack cheeses a variety of spices from latin to asian and some basic veggies potato, onion, celery etc


IDEAS?

edit to add: ideally something that could keep for a bit and re-heat well I like to leave food for family memebers to eat on thier crazy schedules not always together.... maybe something that could be modified to eliminate bacon (we have a vegetarian).... maybe make a nice side to the bowl of chilli I was planning on eating tonight.

Do you have the pork shoulder?

If yes: Cook it as planned, and stuff the peppers with the pulled pork and some sort of sauce. Then bake. Plate up some brown rice and top with a stuffed pepper.

I'll bring the wine.

I have used a store bought artichoke salad to stuff peppers with before baking them. I would add some canned chicken to the salad before stuffing the peppers. They will keep nicely in the fridge for a couple of days properly wrapped.

I usually fill peppers with tuna, tomatoes capers and olives and the grill them. You can serve them with boiled potatoes. Of course, you can bake them instead.

Gosh, you have the ingredients for a lovely frittata. They are great warm or at room temp, and reheat wonderfully.

Could make a rice, cheese and pepper casserole.

hmm lots of good ideas.... the pork shoulder is reserved but I have some pork chili defrosting (thanks mom) that could do.

I have some canned tuna that could use to be moved....

aunt dot I hadnt thought about a fritatta that is an obvious one... bacon, potatos, eggs, (we have tons) cheese,... easy.... rehetable I can make one without bacon for the veggi (god I hope she gets over that soon) that may just be the way to go.

I just couldnt resist the deal on these they are always so darn expensive at the supermarket. but now I have too use them up while I have all these other plans

How about taking the onions and peppers, diced, and sauteeing them. Add to the pork chili and toss in some green olives. Think some raisins would work. Serve over the rice.

Course could always melt some cheese over it.

I guess I'm a little late for this, but I'd chop up those roasted peppers and toss them (and the bacon) into some corn muffins to go with the chili. That way, you can leave the bacon out of a couple for the vegetarian.

So in the end I was LAZY with the peppers.

Some got sauteed and went into a fritatta with bacon and potatos where they performed admirably and addeed lovely color

The rest got doused in oil balsamic and herbs and thrown on the grill....as I broke out the grill for the first time this summer and was eager to grill whatever I could and wanted to make sure I was covered when the vegetarian-in-residence got home. Well.... I could have guessed they were tasty as they dissapeared pretty quick but I did not try one right away .. there was only one left the next evening which I almost tossed becasue it was taking up a big dish in the fridge and I had not immediate use for it... but I decided to take a bite and try it... YUM it was good even cold so wonderfully tender and sweet... i devoured the thing cold straight.

Also they look really cool backlit by the fire while grilling.
