This is a hectic time of year and the last thing someone needs is to be stressing over cooking, which I typically find therapeutic rather than stressful. Here’s a quick and easy appetizer recipe so you don’t have to go somewhere empty-handed if you promised to make something but ran out of time to do a more complex recipe (as I did). I got this idea from Barbara at Winos and Foodies. I just added some green (i.e., chives) to make the peppadews more Christmasy. Despite their simplicity, these little guys make a good impression and nice presentation!
Peppadew Peppers Stuffed w/ Feta, Cream Cheese and Chives
6 ounces feta cheese (crumbled)
8 ounces whipped cream cheese
1/3 cup chopped fresh chives
42 peppadew peppers (I found mine at the grocery store’s olive bar)
Combine first 3 ingredients then stuff peppers
** I used the tip of a butter knife to stuff the peppers, however a friend who liked this recipe said they are going to use a pastry bag to insert the filling. A great idea which I will use next time because filling the peppers was the most time consuming part of this recipe.
***You will have some leftover filling which you can use as a spread on crostini or crackers, a dip for veggies, a sandwich spread, or you can buy more peppadews to fill.
Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!!
