GOAT CHEESE STUFFED MINI PEPPERS
Tender sweet mini peppers filled with the pleasantly fresh (yet lightly tangy!) flavor of goat cheese and drizzled with balsamic reduction.
‣ 1 pound mini peppers ‣ 8 ounce goat cheese, plain or flavored ‣ 1/4 cup balsamic reduction, optional
Prepare the mini peppers by slicing them in half and cleaning out any excess pulp or seeds from the cavities, so that the peppers are ready to be filled. Arrange cleaned peppers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
PREPARE THE PEPPERS
Bake the peppers for a few minutes until tender. Let them cool until easy to handle.
2 - BAKE
While peppers cool, add your chosen goat cheese to a small bowl and use a fork to break the cheese apart into crumbles.
CRUMBLE THE GOAT CHEESE
Stuff each mini pepper with a little bit of goat cheese, being careful not to overfill. For a pretty presentation, try to keep the cut rims of the peppers clean.
