Stuffed Peppers with Feta Cheese


                                                     Stuffed Peppers with Feta Cheese

Another traditional summer Greek appetizer or meze as we call it. The main ingredient for this dish is the feta cheese and as you already know I always prefer Kefalonian feta it's spicier.
This is a recipe my cousin passed on to me from one of her favorite restaurants, here on the island of Corfu. You can serve this meze with a lovely glass of dry white wine. This is a great appetizer if you have family or friendly get togethers.



Ingredients:

8  long green peppers ( sweet kind) ( this is a serving for 4 people) 
14 oz  or 400 grams of Feta Cheese 
1 tomato pureed in blender
salt, pepper , Oregano 
1/2 cup of olive oil
* Tobasco Sauce,  if you like it spicy



One fresh tomato


Puree in a blender


Empty the tomato in a soup plate or in a bowl.


Take your feta slice and place in the plate add about 6 tablespoons of olive oil, pepper, oregano ( fresh would be better), crushed fresh tomato and if you want them a bit spicy add a few drops of tobasco sauce.


Mash the feta cheese with the purred tomato.


Take your long peppers cut the top off, set aside and clean the inside, sprinkle with a dash of salt and your peppers are ready to be stuffed.



Once you have stuffed all your peppers with a toothpick put the tops back on. Sprinkle with salt, pepper,oregano and olive oil. Bake for about 20 minutes or until brown.
