Mini Greek Bell Pepper Boats

Mini Greek Bell Pepper Boats are just as fun to make as they are to eat! Quick, customizable, and the perfect addition to any party!

The Super Bowl is just a few weeks away and we’ve already got our eyes on the prize – the appetizers, amiright? In our opinion, good party apps are essential for game watching enjoyment and the more flavorful and finger-foodesque they are, the better! That’s where these Mini Greek Bell Pepper Boats come into play. Quick, convenient, and loaded with flavor, these portable bites will be gone before halftime.

Quick & Customizable

One of our favorite things about this recipe is that it is SO easy and versatile! You can mix and match with any of your favorite ingredients to make them all your own.

To Hummus, or Not to Hummus. Get creative with your fillings! There are so many to choose from! For hummus you’ve got garlicky, spicy, red pepper, eggplant, you name it! Not feeling hummus? Olive tapenade, salsa, and tatziki are all fun alternatives!

Italian Twist – Not feeling feta? Swap the filling out for marinara, mozzarella, and olives and bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees. Now you’ve got “pizza” peppers!
