Tired of making the same old jalapeño poppers? Give these goat cheese-stuffed sweet pepper poppers a spin – and don’t worry, they still have a little kick from red pepper flakes.

2
tablespoons heavy whipping cream

teaspoon salt
1/2

2
tablespoons butter, melted
16
mini sweet peppers (red, yellow and orange), halved lengthwise, seeded (1 lb)
1
teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

Tips  

Feel like adding a little pig to these pick-ups? Top with crumbled cooked bacon.

Using a serrated knife for cutting the peppers allows you to easily cut the stem in half, if desired.
