  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Side Dish


  • 2 pounds red bull horn’s peppers (or red bell peppers, washed, cored and seeded)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 5 ounces heavy cream
  • 1.5 ounces Edam cheese (or Trappist, grated)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Heat oven to 485°F.
  2. Cover a pan sheet with foil and place peppers on it leaving a little bit of space in between. Roast for a total of 20 to 25 minutes. Check a couple of times, and turn peppers around halfway through. Take out when you notice the skin wrinkling, and the peppers charring a bit.
  3. Place peppers in a bag and close it for 10-15 minutes. Peel and cut into 2-3 inch strips.
  4. In a deep pan, heat up butter on medium temperature. Add garlic and simmer and stir for a minute. Add heavy cream and salt and continue simmering and stirring a few more minutes. Add cheese and again simmer and stir for a couple of minutes. At the end add peppers, stir, simmer and bring to a boil. Remove off heat and serve warm.
