Description

Creamy goat cheese and spicy cherry peppers combine for an easy and flavorful appetizer.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 68 fresh cherry peppers (also called pimiento or pimento peppers), halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup skim-milk ricotta cheese
  • kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the goat cheese and the ricotta, until well combined. Season with the salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Spoon the goat cheese into the cherry peppers, mounding the cheese up a bit. Arrange the stuffed peppers onto a sheet pan and roast for 5-7 minutes, until the cheese begins to turn golden brown. Turn on the broiler, and cook for another 1-2 minutes, watching the peppers carefully so that they don’t burn, until the cheese begins to just bubble. Serve warm.

Notes

If you can find honey goat cheese, try it. The hint of sweetness adds a nice balance to the heat of the peppers. If not, plain goat cheese will still be delicious!
