Stuffed Mini-Peppers

The other day I saw a package of mini peppers at Trader Joe's and just had to buy them-they were so cute! Hmmmmmm, now what to do with them?  Decided to stuff them so they would remain cute. These turned out to be absolutely delicious and you could use any kind of stuffing that appeals to you. I just made up a stuffing from what I had on hand but I can think of other combinations that would be equally as good.

Package of mini peppers (there were nine in the pkg I purchased)
cup of feta cheese
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (chopped up)
salt and pepper
some dried oregano, basil, and a few shakes of dried red pepper flakes
some olive oil

Prepare the peppers by cutting long ways and taking out the seeds (there aren't many in these little guys)
Mix the cheese, and sun dried tomatoes, spices and add a little olive oil.
Stuff the peppers, drizzle with a litltle olive oil

Bake at 375 for about 35 minutes.

Let cool a bit before serving--the flavor develops and they're easier to pick up-great finger food!

Here's a  picture of them before I popped them in the oven:


  1. Found you! I buy these peppers all the time because my kids love to eat them straight out of the package. But stuffed with feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and drizzled with olive oil? That would appeal to me! I'll try it. Carol

  2. It was so great seeing you Carol! Let's stay in touch--I did look at the Pioneer Woman Blog--OMG!
