Me and my hubby, we are quite weak eaters. Few bites and we are full. Not literally few, but comparing to our friends and family our plates are always the smallest ones. We are more into eat-less-but-more-often kind of lifestyle. That’s why appetizers / snacks is one of our most favorite things ever. You don’t overeat (unless you stuff all the tray of appetizers intended for all guests to your greedy face) and you can try many delicious things at the same time! Perfect.

We love appetizers so much that we are always looking for new recipes and we’ve collected quite a big list of them. Not to brag, but our guests always know that they will be served with some new one or few bite treats every time they visit us. Cranberry Chicken Salad on Apple Slices and Asparagus Tart with Goat Cheese are among our favorites. This time I want to show you the completely new (to me) goodness I made yesterday. Meet these little cute Cream Cheese Stuffed Peppers!

Cream cheese is not the only ingredient of the stuffing though. These baby bell peppers are also packed with mushrooms, walnuts, Parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley! How is that for a combination? They pair so well with cream cheese. Believe me. Only 10 minutes in the oven and you have a fantastic appetizer your friends and family will surely fall in love with!

    My partner and I are really light eaters too.
    We joke because our 11 month old eats way more than us at this point! 😛
    These look so perfect!
    Can’t wait to try it!

    Love stuffed peppers, we usually stuff them with more veggies but I love the idea of stuffing them with cream cheese!

    I’m such a stuffed pepper fan and know I’d love these. I bet they are better than the jalapeno poppers that are just too spicy. Can’t wait to give these a try!

      Jessica, I am in the same boat as you. Jalapenos are too spicy for me, that’s why I prefer simple mini bell peppers 🙂
