Italian Stuffed Cherry Peppers

Italian stuffed cherry peppers are quite a treat, but they are quite pricey to buy, meaning I might have them once or twice a year. After spotting these cherry peppers at the Farmers Market I had the brilliant idea to make my own. I admit after purchasing all of the ingredients, they probably would have been equally expensive to buy pre-made BUT I do have leftover cheese and capocollo for sandwiches or an Italian specialty dish!

You can eat these as is, or bake them at 350 until the cheese melts (similar to a jalepeno popper) for an easy appetizer.

8 cherry peppers

1. Cut the stems out of the peppers, and remove the seeds and ribs of the peppers.
