This year we are getting ready for the big game. We are a big football family and the BIG GAME is always a fun time to get together with our friends.
My team, The Patriots, aren’t in it this year, neither is Mr. Fearless Dining’s team, The Raiders. (I am so not going to rub in the fact that my team got a lot closer to his in the playoffs :-)). Even though our teams are done for the year, it won’t stop us from celebrating the big event with lots of delicious party food. What are your favorite appetizer recipes?

This mini sweet pepper appetizer is so easy to make.
First I used these cute little fresh sweet mini peppers that I found in the produce section at Smart & Final. I sliced them in half and removed the seeds.
I added browned mild sausage and grated pepper jack cheese. Top with freshly chopped scallions.
How long do you bake mini sweet peppers?
I baked my stuffed peppers for 15 minutes until the peppers soften and the cheese melts.
