I love roasted red peppers. I put them on homemade pizzas, sandwiches, in sauces and eat them by themselves.
Roasted Peppers make a great addition to meals & antipasti. [Tweet this]
Roasted Red Peppers are inexpensive when homemade. [Tweet this]
Start with whole, clean red bell peppers.
You can roast just 1 or as many that will fit on your baking sheet. Place them in the oven as close to the broiler as possible and broil for a few minutes until the skin chars, flip the peppers and repeat on all sides. (I used my toaster oven because my regular oven broiler has been broken for a while. It worked wonderfully and I set the timer to the dark toast picture and it was the perfect time.)
Now for the messy part. Using your hands and a knife or fork, pull off the stem and squeeze out the seeds. Then begin to peel the charred skin off the peppers (the knife or fork helps pull up the skin so you can get your fingers under it to peel).
