Stuffed Bell Peppers With Brie

"A colorful dish great, for a brunch or lunch. Works also well with Camembert cheese. Depending on the size of the peppers you might have to increase the ingredients."

    I used small round sweet peppers and used these as an hors d'oeuvre. Very well received! Thanks, Pets!

    This was so yummy! I found a recipe for tapenade - I thought you could buy it ready-made, but not in my town! Anyway, I used a chopped roma tomato instead of cherry tomatoes, everything else as written. In memory of Pets...

    The farm was raving about this dish! Wow! Extra WOW! How good are peppers and brie? Right up there with all time good tastes of course! I used green peppers, (as that was growing in the garden) but other then that, stayed exactly to the recipe. Can't go wrong with this one, folks! Made in memory of our beloved "Pets". 2011

    This was such an amazing dish. So very quick to throw together too and so very yummy afterwards. I didn't have tapenade with capers so I chopped a few capers up and mixed it with it. The flavor of the brie was so creamy. I added the fresh basil leaves but I think next time I would add just a few more to it. Thanks for a delicious recipe Pets. I will be making these again. Made for Cookathon for Pets'R'us Update: Made this again for lunch for my Boss but with a nice bed of rice underneath. I had added more basil and or my it is so much better. I really like this dish cause it can be prepared the night before and then heated the next day. Thanks again.


Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
