CHERRY PEPPER CUPS, "feelin' hot, hot, hot"!

At the picnic we were just at recently, someone brought these amazing cherry pepper cups. We loved them. Unfortunately we have no idea who made them. Couldnt ask for a recipe, there were so many people there. So we decided to make them and guess at what was in them. My Mom thought goat cheese would go rather well. I thought the cheese they put in it was a fresh mozzarella or some sort of creamy type soft cheese. We decided to go with the goat cheese.

Our hot peppers were much hotter than theirs so we couldnt have as many as we thought we were going to have. The ones at the picnic had been baked so long that they went flat which was okay as they were so delicious. I wonder if I had baked them longer if they would have become more milder. Probably not but if I had more time I would have baked them longer.

Nevertheless they were very delicious and the goat cheese really held up to the hotness of the peppers. They taste great with chicken.

Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness Original

6 oz goat cheese (you could use havarti instead)
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs, fresh would be better
20- 30 cherry peppers

Wear gloves when working with the hot peppers. Cut tops off cherry peppers and slice a little piece off the bottom just to stabilize it. Stuff a dime size piece of goat cheese in each pepper. Sprinkle bread crumbs over the top. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for about 30 minutes.

I almost thought you wrote 'they taste like chicken'. OMG, that is what reading ahead will do. Costco has had something like these in their chilled section in the past and mmmmmmm. Now you reminded me.

Mmmmm I love stuffed peppers, although I have some problems with cheese.
Anyway, I think you did a great job! It's fun to try something out and then try to reproduce it at home :D
