Sautéed Frying Peppers & Onions with Roasted Potatoes

Tossed with onions and roasted potatoes, these peppers are just as wonderful for brunch as they are for dinner!

Ingredients:
4 Jimmy Nardello peppers
2 Cipollini onions
1 pound French fingerling potatoes
4-6 tablespoons olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

Method:
1. Slice the peppers in half lengthwise and remove the stem and any seeds. If there are any large, thick ribs, remove them as well. Peel and slice Cipollini onions into 1-inch chunks.

2. Heat a large, seasoned cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until searingly hot. Reduce the heat to medium and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the peppers and onions in a single layer. Cook without stirring or moving for 5 minutes, letting the steam build up under the peppers to soften. Flip with tongs and cook undisturbed for 5 minutes more, letting both peppers and onions blister and char in the oil.

3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400°. Wash fingerlings and slice into bite-sized chunks, then toss with 4 tablespoons olive oil, plus sea salt and fresh pepper to taste. Spread potatoes on sheet pan and roast for approximately 30-40 minutes, until cooked through and browned.

4. Add potatoes to skillet with peppers and onions. Season with salt and pepper if needed, serve hot.
