Goat Cheese-Filled Cornbread Crêpes

Yield 5 servings


  • 4 large red bell peppers
  • 4 sweet onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed
  • 1 (12-ounce) log fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 16 Cornbread Crêpes
  • Fresh Corn Sauce
  • Garnishes: reserved pepper strips and onion, fresh basil sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Place bell peppers on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

  2. Broil 5 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially open) 5 minutes on each side or until peppers look blistered, turning once.

  3. Place peppers in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal and let stand 10 minutes to loosen skins. Peel peppers; remove and discard seeds. Cut into thin strips. Reserve 1/2 cup for garnish, if desired.

  4. Cut sweet onions into 1/4-inch-thick slices, and separate into rings.

  5. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, and sauté 20 to 25 minutes or until onion is a light caramel color. Reserve 1 cup for garnish, if desired.

  6. Stir together garlic and next 3 ingredients. Spoon evenly onto Cornbread Crêpes; top with remaining bell pepper and onion. Roll up, and place, seam side down, in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.

  7. Bake at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve with Fresh Corn Sauce, and garnish, if desired.
