Jack-O’-Lantern Stuffed Peppers
Halloween is quickly approaching, friends! Whose getting their party planning in order?
Look no further for your main course. These stuffed peppers have been a huge hit at my parties and in our home, and the jack-o-lantern cut-outs are adorable and perfect for the season.
Not only are they adorable, but they are also so easy. I just use my favorite stuffed pepper recipe but make sure to use orange bell peppers and cut out little jack-o-lantern faces! Aside from how yummy and savory they are, I think I love making stuffed peppers most because you don’t have to follow a set recipe. I’ll toss whatever in my fridge into these bad boys, lol. Sometimes I keep them basic, sometimes I add a smorgasbord of new veggies, sometimes I even add a can of bruschetta! But one thing that remains in every batch–cheese!!!! I have been making these for years and used to boil the peppers to soften them first. I NEVER do that anymore because they get plenty soft when you bake them and there’s nothing worse than a mushy pepper! You can try my Healthy Stuffed Peppers recipe (I suggest skipping the boiling pepper part) here.
