A Hamless Holiday -- Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Pie
Two more days until Christmas!
Today's recipe is reminiscent of a dish that I had in a pub in England.
|Red pepper and goat cheese pie in England....the pub was a little dark, but this dish was fantastic.|
To see other foods I had in England check out this blog.
And you can find my remakes of some of those foods: watercress pesto crostinis, cheese and onion pie, halloumi kabobs, grilled red pepper and onion sandwiches, potato-leek soup.
This recipe is incredibly easy to make and has a great presentation.

|Remove the skin from the red peppers.|
|Dice along with the green onions.|
|Mix the green onions and red peppers into the mashed potatoes.|
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Mix in as much goat cheese as desired.
|Divide into ramekins.|
|It should make four pies.|
|Top with puff pastry.|
|The puff pastry will sit loosely on top of the ramekin, I pushed mine down around the edges of the ramekin.|
|Bake at 475 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.|
This recipe wasn't exactly like the one I had in England because that one had some sort of a sauce served with it, but overall it was great. I used four green onions in the original recipe and scaled that back to make the recipe taste less like onion. I couldn't tell that there was goat cheese in the recipe though, I put several ounces into the recipe. Overall this was a good recipe and I would love to make it again because it was a hit with everyone.
