Oven baked cheesy paprika

In my student days, this was my go to recipe. Simple, easy and very tasty.

The best thing is that it barely cost anything and can be repeated for more than just one day. It's perfect as a side dish but of course, if you make more it's also a great main dish.

Useful ingredient information:


Is paprika that mostly grows at the beginning of summer. Through its neutral taste, it matches perfectly with spices and strong cheeses like Emmentaler or Cheddar cheese.


Is a hard cheese from Switzerland. Depending on which country you buy it from it can be more or less intense in taste. A good alternative is a mild white cheddar.

Ingredients: (serving 1 Person)

  • 3 paprika Gialla

  • Emmentaler cheese

  • pinch of salt and pepper

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika powder

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp fresh or dried parsley

  • olive oil

Let's start cooking:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C

  2. Wash the paprika it cut them in half on the long side

  3. Cut out the seeds and wash the inside so that the seeds don't stick anywhere

  4. Dry the inside with a paper towel

  5. Prepare a tray with a baking sheet and place them on it with the open side facing upwards

  6. Now add the Emmentaler cheese, make sure to push it into the corners

  7. Add all of the seasonings, I prefer a little more garlic powder

  8. Now drizzle a little olive oil over the paprika

  9. Place the tray into the oven for about 15- 20 minutes

  10. When the cheese starts to brown then it's perfect
