Florina Peppers Stuffed with Feta
Feta-stuffed Florina peppers are a very popular side dish in my family! Every time we have a family gathering (pre-pandemic, anyway), we would each bring a meze dish to the feast…and this particular side would somehow always be present. It’s just a hit with everyone who tries it!
Showcasing simple ingredients and with an easy cooking method, this is a great meze dish. It also seems to go with everything - I think you’d be hard-pushed to find a pairing that didn’t sit easily with it! In my book…there is always room for Florina peppers stuffed with feta. (Ssh, let me tell you my secret! When all the peppers are gone but there’s still olive oil in the bottom of the dish, dipping bread into those feta- and pepper-infused juices is possibly my favourite morsel of all!)
Depending on how thick your peppers are, you may need to cover them with aluminium foil for the last 10 minutes so they don’t get burned.
Some peppers can be weirdly shaped. Use a toothpick to hold their top part in place so the filling doesn’t come out while cooking.
Use a teaspoon to stuff each pepper with the cheese mixture and make sure to press down each spoonful so the whole pepper gets filled.
