Years ago, one of my dear freinds introduced me to one of my favorite appetizers – bacon and cream cheese stuffed pepperoncinis. Seriously amazing – I mean, drool inducing good. My mouth is watering just thinking about them.
Of course, they’re not the healthiest thing ever. I mean, bacon. Full fat cream cheese.
So I set out to make a healthier version. I used low fat cream cheese. Turkey bacon – just enough to get the bacon flavor. And instead of stuffing the mixture into pepperoncinis (which is pretty time consuming, I might add), I added the pepperoncinis to the cream cheese – then put all of it into a crisp, mini sweet pepper.
If you’re looking for an appetizer that’s sure to impress, you need to make stuffed sweet peppers. Or make them and put them in your fridge – they’re a nice little bite when you’re craving an afternoon (or late night) snack.
