Finding piquillo peppers around these parts was easy. Finding unstuffed piquillo peppers was not so easy. In the end I had to buy some which had already been stuffed with cheese, empty the filling out of a few, and repacked them with Dorie’s recipe.
And while I was at it, I also bought a few others antipasta, just to round out the meal. And thererin lies the problem. Look at the great antipasta I can buy! No assembly required. Dorie’s recipe was tasty, but I’m so spoiled that her very simple recipe seemed like too much effort.
Hope everyone is having fun this weekend in Seattle. I’m jealous 😦
I’m not in Seattle either 😦 And wow – nice antipasta platter!
Sleepless, but not in Seattle either… I see your dilemma.. nice stuff, no work.
Rosa, This is a very pretty plate and serving it as antipasta is a great idea. I loved mine for lunch but they looked pathetic, sitting there all alone on my plate. I’ve parked your pix on my desktop and will copy it exactly (that’s a compliment, I hear). I am not feeling sorry for you (about Seattle) if you are heading to Munich. Isn’t it Octoberfest? Michael and I were there once for that celebration and had a great time. I love beer. Missing all of you who are not with us today. xoxoxoxo
Oh, I love your platter of anitpasta!!! I would be happy with that for dinner or lunch or even breakfast. Enjoy your trip. Wish you were in Seattle with us.
That antipast tray looks amazing.
Have a great trip!
We wish you were here too!
I admire the motivation – I’m not sure that I would have had the energy to un-stuff and then re-stuff the peppers. Your antipasta platter looks delicious. I love those artichokes.
I’m impressed that you unstuffed the peppers, too. Beautiful antipasti!
Yes, you get a gold star for dedication. Stuffing and restuffing the pepper deserves something. I love how you the stuffed peppers were just one part of an entire antipasti platter. All that deliciousness at the store = Jealousy
