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.


A Hamless Holiday:
Appetizer: The Melting Pot's Spinach Artichoke Cheese Fondue
Drink: Red Velvet Cake Martini
Main Dish: Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Pie


Ingredients
:
-Two red peppers
-Two-Three Green Onions, thinly sliced
-Goat Cheese
-Four potatoes, mashed
-Milk, to taste in the mashed potatoes
-Butter, to taste in the mashed potatoes
-Salt and pepper
-Puff pastry
De-vein and de-seed the red peppers, roast.
To learn how to roast red peppers (it's easy I promise)
check out this blog from September.
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.
Enjoy.

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.

    1. Thanks for stopping by from Food on Friday!! This is a delicious recipe, we made them mini, but I'm sure you could easily make a regular sized pie.
