Default Provolone Hot Peppers

This is just a little hor 'dorves Ive been making over the last couple years. Normally it is grilled over charcoal but the BBQ grill is covered in snow and its -30º so I baked them in the oven. Here we go...

The quantities of ingredients can vary, this isnt a critical scientific process, its a general idea. Either grilling or baking creates a very tasty, tender pepper with a bit of heat. (for grilling place peppers on tin foil with holes poked in it with a fork until cheese melts).

Red Hot Peppers (as many as you want to make)
Fresh Basil
Fresh Marjoram
Sea salt
Red Wine Vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive oil
A block of Sharp Provolone cheese


Again, depending on the quantity of peppers you want, chop a few leaves of basil and marjoram and mix in with a generous portion of the olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add sea salt to taste.


Cut stems off of peppers and make a slit the long way down the pepper. Remove seeds. Cut provolone into fine cubes and stuff the peppers. Add a couple of whole marjoram leaves, and a basil leave into slit in pepper. Fix with a toothpick as show below.


After generously brushing the peppers with the oil, place pan on middle rack of pre-heated oven at 350º for about 15 minutes, or until cheese beings to melts. Plate it up and serve! Enjoy!

Man, does that ever look good!

Wonder if they'd be good if you wrapped them in prosciutto and roasted them on the grill?

Actually that isn't a half bad idea, prosciutto would be great if it were a real thin slice wrapped around it.

I did try these bacon wrapped and grilled, and I think the grease and flavor from the bacon really killed the oil baste and heat on the pepper. It was a little overkill.

The Southwest version of these is jalapeños stuffed with cheddar, wrapped in bacon. Tasty, but way greasy. Your Italian-ized version gave me the idea to use prosciutto instead. Bacon would overpower the fresh herbs, too, I think.

Prosciutto = GOOD!

I changed the recipe just slightly, in part due to necessity, and in part due to preference.

I used jalapeños since the store didn't have red chiles.

I used fresh oregano instead of marjoram since that's all I could find, and I knew it would substitute well.

I added a clove of crushed garlic and a bit of fresh ground pepper to the vinaigrette.

I grilled them over high heat in a veggie basket.

Results: OUTSTANDING!
