I have no words to explain how amazing these fried peppers are. Additionally, if you combine them with bread, they are delicious for lunch. I prepare this dish very often, and my husband frequently requests that I cook this meal for him because he likes it too.

Try this dish if you haven’t already; it’ll quickly become one of your favorites. It is prepared relatively quickly, especially if you have a supply of roasted peppers in the freezer. Here’s what you need:

Ingredients required: 1 kg of red peppers (can also be yellow, but red ones are my favorite), 50 ml of cooking oil, 50 g of butter, 100 g of cheese, 50–100 ml of neutral liquid cooking cream, salt and pepper to taste.

Preparation: To start, I’d like to point out something important: if you want this dish to be juicier, add more liquid cream; if you want the peppers to intensify more, add less of the cream.

Wash the peppers well, wipe them with a clean cotton cloth, and then roast them (you can roast them on a wood stove, on the stove, or even in the oven). Just like when making ajvar, collect the roasted peppers in a plastic bag.

Peel them well and remove the stem and seeds once they have cooled a bit. Then, add some oil and butter to a pan to melt (oil prevents burning and smoking, which can happen when using just butter).

When the butter has melted, add the peppers in strips or as you choose (you can cut them into smaller or larger pieces). Stirring often, fry them for a few minutes or until the extra liquid has evaporated.

When the peppers are cooked, add salt, cheese, and the liquid, neutral cooking cream. Continue simmering for an additional minute, until the flavors come together and some of the cream has been absorbed by the peppers.

Your “peppers in sauce” meal is prepared. This dish can be served in any way you desire, but I like to offer it as a side dish. At home, these peppers are served with baked bread.

The freshly made bun, the sauce, and the peppers are all we require for a perfect lunch. There is nothing more appetizing than that. If you use fewer peppers, you should also use fewer cheese and cream.
