Prep Time

Cook Time


  • 6 oz. goat cheese
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 12 mini peppers
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Fresh basil sprig (optional)



Position rack so peppers on baking sheet will be 6" from heat source; heat broiler.

Line baking sheet with foil.

In bowl, combine goat cheese, basil, and thyme; reserve.

Cut each pepper in half length-wise, keeping stems intact; discard seeds. 

Dividing evenly, fill pepper halves with cheese mixture.

Place stuffed peppers on baking sheet. Broil 4-6 min., until peppers are soft and cheese filling starts to brown.

Transfer to serving plate; drizzle with oil.

If desired, garnish with basil sprig.
