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