These pictures are a few weeks old, but I thought I’d post them. After flipping though my photos and spotting them, I remembered how delicious these were and I had to share them with you!!
Stuffed green peppers with mushrooms, cherry tomatoes (from our garden!), onion, garlic, feta, gruyere cheese, finely diced breadcrumbs from a leftover loaf of olive bread, and assorted seasonings.
J and I mixed them up, while cooking one of our first dinners together in our new place. After traveling so much and on top of moving, we hadn’t eaten a home cooked meal in weeks. It was wonderful to be settled into our new place and to eat fresh, warm, homey food once again!
We didn’t follow a recipe for these delectable bites,… just kind of made it up as we went. While we were preparing the mixture, I threw the halved and seeded peppers in the oven at 400 degrees for about 6 or so minutes (honestly, I can’t remember exactly how long it took, but basically until they were just tender a bit,..not too tender, since we had to stuff them and put them back in the oven for just a bit to get everything heated though).
While the peppers baked in the oven, I sauteed onions, garlic, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms with a bit of olive oil. After they were cooked though, I transferred them to a bowl and added in some shredded gruyere cheese, feta cheese, diced olive loaf breadcrumbs, and whatever random seasonings I felt like throwing in.
We then stuffed the, now cooked to just tender, peppers with the mixture and threw them back in the oven for about 8 more minutes or until just heated though.
They were delicious! You should try them out…I highly recommend it. YUM!
