Sweet Pepper Poppers

I like things spicy, but not everyone does.  I made these Sweet Pepper Poppers to bring over to our friends the other day.  Even the kids could eat them.  (Their kids, of course, my kids are fire eaters.)

I started with these mini sweet peppers that I found at the grocery the other day.

I cut almost all the way through the tops, and cleaned out the seeds.

Next, I mixed together 4 oz of cream cheese, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and some salt and pepper.

I cut off the tip of a piping bag, and piped the cheese mixture into the peppers.

 Close up the caps using the cheese to hold it closed.

I whisked egg whites until they were foamy, and dipped the poppers into the egg whites,

then into some gf bread crumbs.

It was too hot to fry these so I popped them on the grill.  They'd probably have better color fried, but they sure were tasty.

Thanks for popping in and cooking with me.  I'm linking these up to Gluten-Free Homemaker's Gluten-Free Wednesdays.

  1. What a good idea! They look delicious.

  2. Brilliant idea, my friend. Costco has these little peppers. I never thought of stuffing them. Cheese sounds good. I wonder what other foods would work. Rice, meat (tofu), veggies...

  3. Love this idea, mmm spicier the better!!

  4. hmmmm, I have a huge bowl of hot banana peppers sitting on the counter...just waiting for me to figure out what to do with them. This sounds delicious! (Hopping over from Little Brick Ranch)

  5. Those look delicious! I love those little peppers. Yum!

  6. I HAVE to try this--yum!! Have a great weekend and pop over to visit Ciao Newport Beach!
