Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers no matter the occasion! But since it's game day season, I've been serving up this Roasted Red Peppers and Goat Cheese Bruschetta while we are "homegating" (i.e. tailgating at home!)
If you're a fan of bruschetta, this is a must-try recipe! The roasted red peppers are a great alternative to the traditional bruschetta topping, tomato, and the peppers pair so well with whipped goat cheese it's a no-brainer. Yes, goat cheese! It may sound like a peculiar combination, but I promise that the flavors work so well together you won't want to eat your bruschetta any other way! Check out how I prepare this game day appetizer below, as well as how to enter to win the Homegating Sweepstakes!

Roasted Red Peppers and Goat Cheese Bruschetta
- 1 French bread baguette
- 3 cups of Mezzetta Roasted Bell Peppers, chopped
- 1 1/2 cups of goat cheese, whipped or softened
- Cut your baguette into multiple, small pieces of bread that are about 1 to 1/2 inches thick. Store any extra and unneeded bread and set aside.
- Spread a small and even amount of goat cheese on top of each piece of bread.
- Pour your bell peppers onto a plate or cutting board, and chop them up into smaller pieces and strips (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in width).
- Top each piece of bread with a few pieces of bell peppers.
- Chill for up to 30 minutes or serve immediately. Enjoy!
