Did you ever see the movie Mermaids with Cher, Bob Hoskins, and Winona Ryder? Cher, playing the mother, only knew how to make appetizers for dinner, she never mastered entrees but would do an assortment of snacks.
That’s sort of how I felt tonight (well, not quite like Cher). I had planned to make these for yesterday’s party but ran out of time with the clock change and all that.
Preheat the oven to 350F
Put the peppers into the microwave for a minute or two on high just to soften them slightly.
Meanwhile mix together 12oz or so of cream cheese, (or goat cheese). I added a little bleu cheese I had left over from the chicken wings yesterday, some herbs de provence, and a little garlic powder. Your imagination is your only limiter here.
With a sharp paring knife make a slit the length of the pepper, and squeeze it gently like one of those old rubber change purses. Pack in some of the cheese, put on cookie sheet.
Repeat until you have as many as you can get (I managed 20 stuffed peppers).
Into the hot oven for 20 minutes until cheese is oozy and peppers are crisp-tender.
Until next time, Eat Well & Keep Digging.
