These are a tasty little treat I once had in Greek with some Ouzo. καλή όρεξη (kali orexi – enjoy your meal!)
Cuisine: Greek
Serves: 2-4
  • 6 peppers of your choice (we tend to go for mild peppers)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup crumbled Greek cheese (Feta or Kefalotyri - or a mixture of your favorite)
  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • Some Sea salt and Pepper
  • Olive oil for frying
  • ½ lemon
  1. Wash peppers, cut off the top and remove seeds.
  2. Beat egg and pour in bowl with grated cheese and mix.
  3. Add parsley, some Sea salt and pepper, mix well.
  4. Stuff each pepper with cheese mixture.*
  5. Heat pan with olive oil, once hot, add peppers and fry until soft.
  6. Remove, set on paper towel to absorb excess oil.
  7. Put the Greek stuffed peppers with Cheese on a plate and squeeze lemon over them.
  8. Serve!
* Adding a piece of bread to each pepper before placing on pan will help keep the cheese mixture from coming out.
Want to skip frying? You can also bake these for 25-30min at 375F, or until soft.
Pro tip: use gloves when cleaning or the seeds to prevent them from burning your hands due to their spice.
