Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadews

Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadew Peppers. Perfect as tapas or a light snack!

Last Friday, Shawn and I were driving around looking for a place to eat dinner when we ended up at the Macaroni Grill. We hadn’t eaten there in years, but we couldn’t think of anything else that we wanted so we figured we would give it a shot. I have to admit, I was pretty impressed! First off, they’re having a half off wine special for the rest of the summer… my glass of chianti rang in at $2.75. Score! We ordered a few items off the tapas menu to eat as appetizers and immediately fell in love with the goat cheese stuffed peppadew peppers.

Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppadew Peppers. Perfect as tapas or a light snack!

It took me about 2 seconds to decide that I wanted to make the peppers for Sunday Supper. This week we’re “Spicing it Up!” so they’re the perfect contribution.

The peppers themselves are sweet, with a subtle heat the kicks in at the end (less spicy than a jalapeno). They’re stuffed with creamy, tangy goat cheese and topped with toasty breadcrumbs, then drizzled with a balsamic reduction. The sweet-spicy-tangy-creamy combination is amazing, and these bite-sized snacks are perfect as part of a tapas spread or as a light snack.

According to Shawn, they’re his “new favorite thing!” I can’t say I disagree.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Peppadew peppers (sweet piquante peppers) are mildly spiced, with a sweet heat. Look for them packaged in jars near the pickles or loose on your grocer’s olive bar. (Don’t confuse them for cherry peppers, which are very hot!)

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 16 peppadew peppers
  • 4 ounces soft goat cheese
  • 2 teaspoons panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • olive oil spray
Preparation
  1. Heat your broiler.
  2. Rinse away the oil that the peppadews were stored in, then place them in a shallow baking dish. Stuff each pepper with about ½ teaspoon of cheese and top with breadcrumbs. Spritz with olive oil spray. Broil 1-2 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are toasted and golden brown.
  3. Add the balsamic vinegar to a small pan set over high heat. Bring to a oil and cook until reduced by ¾ – about 2 minutes. Drizzle over the peppers.

Comments

  1. The spice and creaminess in these is awesome! So random that they were inspired by Macaroni Grill! I’ve actually never been

    • Lauren @ HealthyDelish says:

      I know, right? But I’ll take inspiration wherever I can find it. We actually hadn’t been in years (turned off by a so-so meal and terrible service) but I’m glad we gave it another shot because they’ve definitely upped their game. It was cheap too – I think we ended up spending like $35 for dinner, apps, and my glass of wine!

  2. Nichole C says:

    The moment I saw your title, I thought of Macaroni Grill’s appetizer, since A) That is the only time I’ve had a peppadew pepper and B) It was surprisingly good!

    • Lauren @ HealthyDelish says:

      I’m so glad that we ordered them! I definitely wasn’t expecting to find something so unique there. :)

  3. Jennifer Drummond says:

    I love this recipe! I love stuffing peppers and the combination you used is so perfect! I wouldn’t mind a plate of these!

  4. I like the flavor addition of balsamic vinegar in your stuffed peppers. Excellent flavor choice and presentation and I am glad you made them after having them in the restaurant. =)

    • Lauren @ HealthyDelish says:

      Yup, that little burst of acidity really balances out the creamy cheese and just puts it over the edge in terms of flavor.

  5. Jen @JuanitasCocina says:

    It’s that whole balsamic drizzle at the end that has sent me over the edge!

    • Lauren @ HealthyDelish says:

      The balsamic makes it. It also makes them not so pretty, but it’s worth it for the flavor!

  6. Oh man, I think they may become my new favorite thing, as well! Love the goat cheese/pepper combo!

  7. Debra Elliott says:

    Yummy in my tummy!

  8. What a yummy little bite of deliciousness with a kick! So pretty, too!

  9. This looks so, so good!! Like jalapeno poppers in a fancy dress. Love this.

  10. yum, these look delicious! I am adding these to my list of things to make at out next girls night!

  11. I’ve never heard of peppadew peppers, but being less spicy than jalapenos, i can handle these! Love goat cheese too.

    • Lauren @ HealthyDelish says:

      Give them a try! The have a bit of a kick to them, but it’s a sweet heat. I bet you’ll love them!

  12. Oh this looks like the perfect appetizer for my next party!!I love the goats cheese in here and the peppers look delish!

  13. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen says:

    Mmmm…. you had me at goat cheese! The balsamic reduction is just the icing on the peppers…ja!

  14. Those look beautiful–I can’t wait to try this!

  15. Hezzi-Ds Books&Cooks says:

    The creamy cheese in the spicy peppers sounds wonderful!

  16. The Wimpy Vegetarian says:

    What a great party appetizer! I’m having a dinner party next weekend, and this just went on the menu!!

  17. Laura Hunter says:

    Oh wow these look so yummy. I have never tried peppadew peppers but I have never met a pepper that I didn’t like so I am going to see if I can find them or if not at least grow them.

    • Lauren @ HealthyDelish says:

      Definitely look on the olive bar or by the pickles/olives. You can buy them on Amazon, too!

  18. kimchi_mom says:

    So these are peppadew peppers! Mmmmm….and goat cheese! Sounds perfect! Thanks for sharing Lauren!

  19. Renee Dobbs says:

    I’ll take a dozen. No, wait, make that three. This will be an appetizer next time I’m entertaining. Love it.

  20. I’ve been dying to make these and now you’ve given me the kick in the pants I needed. And that price for wine-wish it were my local C:

  21. I learnt what pappadews are yesterday when I saw your recipe shared on Facebook. These peppers look so cute. Pity we don’t have them in Greece.

  22. I think we would loooove these. Anything stuffed with goat cheese and drizzled in balsamic is a win in my house.
