    Holiday Meals Prep: Roasted Red Bell Pepper Bisque

    Roasting the peppers



    Cut in half and take out stem/seeds and membrane. Cut in half again.

    Place on sheet tray lined with foil.



    Turn on broiler in oven. Place peppers on top rack. Broil for approx. 8 minutes. Watch this closely, turning the pan to roast the peppers evenly.



    Put roasted peppers in bowl and cover with shrink wrap. This will steam the peppers and loosen the skins so they are easier to remove.

    Holiday Meals Prep: Roasted Red Bell Pepper Bisque

    Making Creme Fraiche

    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    2 Tbsp buttermilk

    We did 2 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream and 5 Tbsp buttermilk.



    Whisk these together. Top with paper towel held with a rubber band.



    Let this set at room temp for 24-48 hours. I set this inside a paper sack over a heat register. After about 36 hours it was the consistency of sour cream all the way through.

    Holiday Meals Prep: Roasted Red Bell Pepper Bisque

    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 large carrot, chopped
    1 large celery stalk, chopped (I used a few stalks from the celery heart for more flavor.)
    3 Tbsp olive oil
    4 cups chicken stock
    1/2 tsp ground hot pepper
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/4 cup heavy cream (Do not add if you are making ahead of time. Add when reheating before service.
    Creme Fraiche for garnish.



    Saute carrot, celery and onion with olive oil in a 4 qt stock pot about 8 minutes. Add ground hot pepper, chicken stock and roasted peppers.
    Simmer for 30 minutes.

    Place in stand blender and run on liquefy for about 1 minute. You can pour this through a fine sieve or not. We tried both ways and did not notice that much difference.



    Stir in heavy cream and serve.

    Holiday Meals Prep: Duchess Potatoes

    7 cups russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1-1/2" chunks
    1/2 cup room temp heavy cream
    7 tablespoons butter, room temperature
    2 large egg yolks
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt



    Boil potatoes for about 20 minutes or until fork tender. Drain the potatoes and return to stove on medium heat until excess moisture evaporates.





    I chose to rice the potatoes for a nicer consistency. This takes a little more time but is worth the effort.





    Fold in the butter. Then add the rest of the ingredients.



    Fill a piping bag with a large star tip with potato mix.
    Pipe into desired design on a parchment lined baking pan.



    Ready to bake.



    Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
