Cheese Stuffed Peppers are one of our recent favorite breakfast foods. If you are a breakfast person like us, you love to try new things for a big breakfast when you have time on Sundays.
These cheese stuffed fried peppers are sooo tasty! One of your favorite recipes on the blog is Roasted Red Bell Peppers Stuffed With Feta, so you will sure love these fried version too. The result was fabulous! You just need peppers, cheese and oil to fry for this recipe, but you can combine cheese with chopped onion and fresh dill or parsley if you want a tastier flavor.
You can see me happier at weekends since I can prepare appetizing foods in the morning that help everyone wake up. Did I tell you before that breakfast means happiness for me or how many times did I say this? I don’t really remember, but I can repeat this like hundreds times. Breakfast is absolutely what I need to start the day! And these cheese stuffed peppers have already become a hit at our breakfast table.
It might sound weird to have these in the morning, but it is definitely not in Turkish style breakfast. When I say breakfast, I don’t mean just coffee and cake or a smoothie. We prepare lots of things especially at weekends. Savory or sweet pies, various types of cheese and olives, egg, salad, honey or jam, french fries are to name some. Personally, I love to eat all kinds of appetizers at breakfast!
I’m sure everyone has pepper, cheese, onion and some herbs in the kitchen. It’s never too late to make something fancy, go make some cheese stuffed peppers and you can thank me later!
You can have these as a side dish or appetizer if you don’t feel like eating them in the morning. You will get addicted no matter when you eat them!
You can either have these plain or top them with salsa and double the joy! These can be eaten cold as well, so you can take these to a potluck or picnic or even to work.
