Cheese Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers
photo by JudyJudyJudee
- Ready In:
- 12 mini sweet peppers
- 1⁄2 cup alouette garlic and herb cheese spread
- 1⁄4 cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs
- 1⁄4 cup freshly grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Wash and halve the peppers and remove the seeds. Leave the stem intact so that the cheese does not ooze out at it melts--also for the cuteness factor. Mix breadcrumbs and Parmesan together in a small bowl. I used Emeril's italian seasoned panko breadcrumbs; if you're using plain, you will want to season with salt and herbs. Using a small spoon, stuff about 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoons of cheese in each pepper half; no more than half full as the cheese puffs as it bakes. Sprinkle cheese and bread crumbs on pepper halves and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes depending upon how soft you like your peppers.
