ROASTED RED PEPPERS - COOK'S NOTES
Red peppers always look and taste better when the edges are slightly burnt. This recipe does just that. The long roasting tends to concentrate the sweet pepper flavour and illustrates very well why they are called sweet peepers.

The type of mushroom doesn't really matter but a strong flavoured variety is probably best. The volume of mushrooms will look large at the beginning of cooking but they soon shrink down.

When the roasted red peppers are cooked they are covered in grated cheese and put under the grill for a few minutes. This recipe can be given a local slant by using different cheeses. We have suggested traditional Cheddar Cheese but Manchego cheese would give the dish a Spanish feel to it and a French cheese would change it again.

INGREDIENTS

1 large red pepper
200g / 7oz of mushrooms
2 medium tomatoes
4 slices of back bacon
2 medium eggs
2 garlic cloves
125g / 4oz Cheddar cheese
Couple of pinches of sweet paprika
4 tablespoons of Spanish extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

COOKING EQUIPMENT
An oven proof baking tray.
