BBQ - Sweet Baby Peppers with Feta and Oregano

Sweet Baby Peppers with Feta and Oregano are so good you just have to make them at your next BBQ! Well I don't want to speak too soon but it seems for a couple of days the UK is having a heat wave; about time too I say! So yesterday out came the BBQ, gotta love BBQ food as it's not only easy but of course delicious too.

As I'm sure everyone knows you should always wait till the coals turn white with heat before attempting to cook anything, otherwise all that happens is your burgers and sausages burn before they cook inside. We bought a Weber Chimney Starter a few years ago and I must say it is life changing; well as far as lighting a BBQ goes anyway.

I totally recommended you get one if you haven't already. Not only will your BBQ be far easier to light but all you do is wait till the coals are white hot before you cook and your food will turn out perfectly cooked.

BBQ idea

Of course BBQ favourites are always going to be burgers and sausages but we are big fans of these baby sweet peppers and I can't resist baby vine tomatoes.

There's no real recipe for this as it's far too simple!
Cut the peppers in half lengthways (keeping the stalk bit) remove the seeds and stuff with feta. Lay them on a foil cooking tray and sprinkle with dried oregano and a few chilli flakes. Drizzle with olive oil and that's it you're ready to pop the tray on the BBQ (BBQ lid on with the vent open).

For the vine tomatoes I use baby ones so they cook quicker; nothing to do but drizzle with olive oil and add a sprinkling of dried oregano and a little sea salt.

BBQ Side

I suppose the peppers and tomatoes took about 30 to 40 minutes to cook, I can't say as I paid too much attention as I was too busy enjoying the sun and a glass of wine!
