feta stuffed peppers

We had some friends over last night and I put together a pretty simple appetizer, so I thought I’d share! It’s a perfect recipe to whip-up at the last minute (or a little ahead of time, which is what I did) and it just happens to be gluten-free! How cute are these peppers? I’ve actually been taking these little peppers to work with me and snacking on them in the afternoons with a bit of hummus. After a few days of snacking, I just couldn’t resist the urge to stuff them!

How to Make Feta Stuffed Peppers

How to Select the Best Feta Cheese

  • Real Greek feta cheese is made from sheep’s milk and that’s what gives feta such a unique flavor. Be sure to check the label because a lot of feta in the United States is made from cow’s milk. I like the Mt. Vikos brand, which is made from sheep and goat milk. It’s easy to find and relatively affordable.
  • Look for a block of feta that is in a solid block and in a container of brine. This will give you a fresher flavor than the kind of cheese that is vacuum-sealed. Crumbled feta tends to have anti-caking agents, so it won’t blend as smoothly.
  • I do not recommend fat-free feta. You miss out on delicious flavor and it won’t have the same texture. For this recipe, you need the real deal!

Feta is a favorite of mine and I had a bunch of dill leftover from making these roasted potatoes and chickpeas. The dill was practically begging to be used! These are a perfect party food, but I could even see them as an afternoon snack! If you have leftover filling, just dunk some pita chips in it!

Picking the Perfect Peppers

  • You can usually find these mini peppers sold in a clear plastic bag in the produce section at the grocery store. I haven’t seen them sold in bulk, but keep an eye out for them!
  • Look for peppers that are similar in size, so they’ll use a consistent amount of filling.
  • Pick peppers that are smaller, about 3″ in length. That will give you a good pepper-to-stuffing ratio!

Aren’t they adorable? Honestly, the filling possibilities are pretty endless. I also made hummus stuffed peppers and they were delicious!

Tips for Blending Feta Cheese

If you don’t have a small food processor, you can make it in a bowl with a hand mixer. Be sure the feta cheese and cream cheese are at room temperature, which will make them easier to mix. If they’re straight from the fridge, microwave them on 40% power for 15-30 seconds or until just slightly softened. This makes it easier to combine. You can even mix it by hand, but you’ll need to use some elbow grease.
