Grilled Bell Peppers and Feta

Posted by terrepruitt on September 3, 2009

I wanted to share this with you just in time for Labor Day.  This past summer I went to a barbeque and the hostess had made grilled bell peppers and feta.  She had bought the bag of bell peppers that you get from Costco that have the different colors in them.

Well, I brought some home to Hubby and he liked them.  Since then we have made them several times but we have been using the green bell peppers.

It is so easy.  You just cut the bell peppers so they form a little boat.  If they are flat that is ok, it just makes it more possible for the cheese to escape.  🙂  Then you grill them 5 minutes on each side, or if you like them less cooked just grill them on the inside for five minutes.

After you grill them either on the outside for five and the inside for five or just the inside for five you put feta in them.  You can put as much as you would like.  You can also use blue cheese.  It is a litte bit more greasy so it is a little tricky to deal with, but it is good.  I prefer the feta.

Then you grill the feta filled boats for five minutes.  Yum.  Nothing else is needed.  No salt, no oil, nothing.  And they are so yummy.

Recently we went to a barbeque and started talking about all the ways you can do them and there are a lot of ways.  You can get elaborate and makes some pretty yummy concoctions, or you can just keep it simple.  It is really good.  This is an easy treat that is in a class by itself.

I don’t know if you have a Costco in your area but that is what we have in San Jose and the Bay Area where we get our large quantities.

If you end up trying this and make any variation, let me know how it works out.  I would love to hear how different types of cheeses work.  Although it is an exercise in will power to not over do it on the cheese.  You know how I love cheese!
