PEPPADEW PEPPERS STUFFED WITH HERBED GOAT CHEESE

At the grocery store the other day, these orange peppadew peppers caught my eye:

Is it just me, or are these kinda burnt orange?  They might not scream “hook ’em” to you, but to me, they look like perfect Longhorn party food.  Stuffed peppadew peppers are a familiar item on tapas menus, and they’re quick and easy to assemble.  I used a homemade boursin cheese made with goat cheese and cream cheese (which is also great with crackers), but there are loads of ideas for other stuffings out there.

 Hook ’em!

Not a Longhorn fan?  Topped with a pepper stem, they make cute little pumpkins, too!

  1. Burnt orange is a stretch but what the heck. I’m not a goat cheese lover but I bet this would be great with some bleu cheese too. My daughter loves these peppers. I’ll pass this recipe on to her.

I'd love to hear from you!
