This quick & easy stuffed pepper recipe is usually served as a summer "meze" appetizer with a glass of white wine or ouzo. Many times it's enjoyed as a side dish or even a light meal (like we did today) The recipe calls for Cubanelle peppers, long & tapered, light green in color, and sweet. Note: If you have some stuffing leftover, you can stuff one more pepper, add an egg or two and make an omelet or make a sandwich like my son did today:) ENJOY!

How To Make greek stuffed peppers with feta & mizithra cheeses

  • Preparing Cubanelle Peppers for Stuffing.
    Wash the peppers, slice the cap off the peppers, and set aside to use later. Scoop out the seeds, carefully though not to break or tear the peppers.
  • Feta & Mizithra Cheese Mixture for Stuffing Peppers.
    In a bowl mix & mash the cheeses with a fork, add the onion, parsley, dill, olive oil, and pepper to your taste. If you like to have a slight kick add some red pepper flakes (I don't always add) Also I don't add salt due to the cheese, especially the feta cheese is a salty cheese. So before stuffing the peppers taste the filling and adjust to your liking.

    With a small spoon or your fingers (I use my fingers)stuff the peppers with the cheese mixture. Carefully pressing down to completely fill the peppers, to 1/2 inch from the top. Press a small piece of bread into each pepper to keep the cheese from melting out while cooking. Place the caps back on each pepper.

    Lightly brush a baking or pyrex dish with olive oil and add the peppers, placing them one next to the other. Drizzle the peppers with olive oil.
