This was very easy and tasteful. When I was done, I also poured a little hot sauce on top for a little kick.
wonderful served them as an mid afternoon snack and they hit the spot perfectly. I used pre-cooked prawns and reduced the cooking time to 2 minutes. Will make this again. thanks KelBel
Yum! These made fabulous appetizers at our Christmas Eve party. I substituted shredded pizza cheese for the chevre and baked the cream cheese mixture. Also, instead of using fresh red bell peppers, I used roasted red peppers. Thanks for the recipe!
