    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (16 ounce) jar cherry peppers (I like them hot but you can buy the sweet peppers too)
    • 1 (8 ounce) package provolone cheese
    • 1/4-1/2 lb prosciutto ham, cut very thin
    • olive oil (Use enough to fill the jar after the peppers are done)


    1. 1
      Clean peppers by cutting the pepper around the stem (like you would a pumpkin), and cleaning out the seeds.
    2. 2
      Cut cheese in small squares.
    3. 3
      Wrap small strips of ham around diced cheese cubes.
    4. 4
      Place each cube into a pepper.
    5. 5
      Place finished peppers into the jar (be sure to drain the jar of all liquid first).
    6. 6
      Pour olive oil over peppers enough to cover.
    7. 7

      Those who like cherry peppers seemed to like this 'different' appetizer. We used mozzerella cheese. We thought the olive oil could use a little salt and pepper added to it. It takes a small amount of work, but isn't hard to do.

      I had these at an Italian Theme party this weekend. They were FANTASTIC. However, the only difference was the use of Mozz. Cheese instead. I almost didn't try them because I don't like peppers that much. I was wrong. Thank you for posting!!!
