Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers

These petite Yummy (that's their actual variety name) snack peppers are well quite yummy!  They are delicious plain, eaten as 'chips' with hummus, or lightly roasted and stuffed.  Oh yum!
We recently enjoyed them at our Garlic Dinner stuffed with feta cheese, herbs, and garlic
and baked in the oven for a short time.  They were quite popular. 
Bet you can't eat just one!

Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers
25 - 30 peppers
7 oz. feta cheese
2 oz. cream cheese
1/4 c. fresh basil
1/4 c. rosemary
1/4 c. sun dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
2 cloves garlic, minced

Wash and prepare the peppers.  Slice the peppers in half and remove seeds.  You can also leave the pepper whole, cut the stem and top off, and carefully remove the seeds.  We found it was easier to eat the peppers when they were halved.  It does however, present a nice variety to have a combination of whole stuffed and half peppers on a platter.

Place the cheeses, herbs, tomatoes, and garlic in a food processor.  Pulse until evenly chopped and a fine mixture remains.Gently spoon the mixture into the whole peppers or onto the pepper halves.  Place the stuffed peppers onto a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment. 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 8 - 10 minutes .

I am not usually a stuffed pepper fan, but these do look and sounds delicious.

These sure look delicious! My husband would LOVE these. I'm going to have to make them. I had quite a chuckle over your three heads of garlic dinner in the previous post. If I did that, the other people here at my house would probably make me sleep outside in the yard! :-) So maybe I'll just try one thing at a time.

I've had the peppers before and they are good, but this has raised them to wonderful heights!
