|healthified stuffed peppers!|
24 medium sized peppers
12 1" cubes of sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup cream cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups bread crumbs
1 cup flour
Oil for spraying
Slice the peppers in two. Make sure to keep the two halves together. Deseed and core the peppers. Place them on a baking sheet in the 400° F oven for about 10 minutes or until they are a bit soft to touch. You don't want mushy peppers. Pull them out of the oven and let them cool down.
Mix cream cheese with salt and pepper.
Whisk eggs in a bowl.
Now take the one half of the peppers, stuff it with one spoonful of cream cheese mixture, place the 2nd half on the top and keep it aside. Repeat with 11 more peppers.
Again, take one half of the pepper, place the cheddar cheese cube in it and cover it up with the 2nd half. Repeat for 11 more peppers. This way, you will have 2 different cheese filled peppers.
Now, roll the peppers gently in flour, dip them in egg, coat with bread crumbs. Again, dip them in the egg and coat with bread crumbs. Place them on the baking sheet.
Spray Pam or any cooking oil liberally on the peppers and bake them in the very hot oven for about 5-6 minutes till they are golden brown. Be careful as the filling will be very hot. Serve warm with your favourite dip.
