Yum! This week I’ve been trying delicious different sandwich and salad combinations with Mezzetta Roasted Red Peppers and Peperoncini rings. They’re ideal for paninis as well as hero-style sandwiches, of course, but we’ve also found them to be scrumptious on Boca burgers. Combined with a little minced, sauteed garlic, red pepper strips make a Boca Burger irresistible.
A few nights back, I made a killer, killer, killer salad. It was based on a recipe from one of the best cookbooks you’ll ever find – Nigella Express. Her recipe called for jalapeno peppers but I substituted them with Mezzetta’s Roasted Red Peppers. (I’ll post the recipe later today – You’re going to flip for it.)
On Mezzetta’s web site, you’ll find endless great recipes, like the one for Moroccan Melts. You’ll also find information for a great Sandwich Contest – but you’ll have to shake a let, the deadline’s almost here. I dropped the ball… or the sandwich, as it were. I could have sworn the deadline was months away. I was going to post about the contest and even put up a little graphic – but BAM, I go to get the info and realize that the deadline? It’s practically hours away!
Geez. Enjoy the recipes, though. And grab a jar of Mezzetta’s Roasted Red Peppers and Mezzetta’s Peperoncini. They’re fantastic alongside anything and were made to grace salads, pizzas, pasta, and sandwiches. The Red Peppers are also unbelievable in omelets, scrambled eggs, and hummus.
