I got some great suggestions and tips in my Roasted Bell Pepper Cheese thread and have made the recipe several times with the revisions.
I mentioned wanting to use fresh garlic as opposed to garlic powder and Chef Jimmy J came to my aid with good instructions on how to get that done.
Chef JJ also mentioned using fresh onion and adding some bacon to the mix, and so I added both of those to the recipe.
Dirtsailor made the obvious suggestion of smoked cheese and, while I had thought of it, I hadn't tried it yet.
For this batch I incorporated most all of the suggestions and also decided to use a mix of red and green peppers for a seasonal touch.
On to the pic's.
Well mashed Garlic
Finely chopped Bacon (Mixed sauce / seasonings on the side)
Garlic and onions added to sauce And the Bacon
Peppers on to roast Peeled, Cleaned, and diced
Smoked Cheddar Mixing it up
And, finally finished. The new additions have taken this recipe to a whole new level. I am sure that the recipe will continue to evolve. I have added Dirtsailors suggestion of "What's this here sauce" to a small sample of the cheese spread and think that it is also a worthy addition.
Thanks for checking it out and I hope you all can give it a shot. Merry Christmas everyone!!
