Pepperdew treats

Cream cheese and basil at front & roasted garlic hummus at back
These little treats are so good and so easy! They look so impressive and I must say they have sort of changed my life, because they are such morsels of peppery, spicy, sweet goodness! My sister introduced me to them in Melbourne and I have been a lover of them ever since. You can stuff them with pretty much anything and they are good even on their own. So find a jar, or look at the deli because you have to try them!
  • Peppadew mild whole piquanté peppers (as many as you like)
  • 100gm cream cheese (will fill about 25)
  • 2 Tblsp basil pesto
Mix the cream cheese and basil pesto ina bowl. Spoon mixture into a piping bag (or small plastic one with the corner cut off it) and 'pipe' the mixture into each pepper until it is full. The best way is to put the piping bag all the way to the bottom and let the mixture push the bag out the top, that way it is nice and full.

  • Other flavours to stuff pepperdews are:
    • 50gm blue cheese & 1/2 cup breadcrumbs and then bake them for 10mins
    • Roasted garlic hummus
    • seasoned natural yoghurt and cucumber
    • any dip mixture
    • shredded chicken & mayo
    • smoked salmon blended with cream cheese
    • guacamole
