Peppadews Stuffed with Garlic Herb Cheese

One of the fun parts of living with someone who works at a grocery store is that he will bring home strange and interesting items that are either expired or about to be so. It is like my own Chopped! challenge of what to do with X ingredient. This is how peppadews came into my life.

Pickled sweet red peppers about the size of cherry tomatoes, they are sold hollowed out and just waiting to be stuffed. With some cream cheese burning a hole in my cheese drawer and plenty of fresh herbs in the crisper, garlic herb cheese was just the ticket!

Goat cheese will work if you want to get fancier, but the cream cheese was delicious too. These were served at an Oscar party and everyone loved them!

Peppadews Stuffed with Garlic Herb Cheese

1 container of peppadew peppers
2/3 cup cream cheese
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh herbs - basil, parsley, oregano, thyme all work well
1-2 teaspoons milk

Combine cream cheese and milk and combine well. Add garlic and herbs and mix well. Stuff peppadews and serve.
