5 Cheese Roasted Red Pepper Spread recipe that is perfectly paired with toasted baguette slices.
As I am sure you are well aware, EASTER is just a hop, skip, and jump away! With our vacation coming up this next week, I’ve been scrambling trying to prepare everything Easter-related before we leave next Sunday. This includes Easter dinner! My family is all about hors d’oeuvres and appetizers, (we like to EAT before eating).
I immediately started thinking of all the different flavors that I love with bread – and let me tell you, this is a long list! I let me husband make the final call and he wanted a roasted red pepper spread – one of our very favorite flavors!
How To Make Roasted Red Pepper Spread
I started by roasting a red bell pepper and then dicing it up.
I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese (at room temperature) and whipped it in my mixer until it was nice and fluffy. I added the red pepper, Parmesan cheese, and cheese blend to the cream cheese.
Go ahead and let the spread chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the baguettes. The longer it has to chill, the better. I just love the pretty color of this spread!
The baguettes require only 8-10 minutes in the oven and oh my do they smell amazing while they are baking away! My husband must have asked three times during that short 10 minutes if it was time to eat yet!
Once they are done, slice away and serve! Enjoy that lovely aroma as you cut the bread – mmm!
My husband likes his bread a little toasty so after slicing, I popped them back into the oven for another 5-7 minutes and they were perfect. This bread tastes SOOO delicious – just like fresh baked bread! I can’t believe how inexpensive it is and it will become a routine buy for me when shopping at Walmart.
