Roasted Red Pepper Feta Stuffed Potato Skins


These roasted red pepper feta stuffed potato skins are crispy on the outside and stuffed with a cheesy red pepper filling. The perfect game day appetizer!

There are currently three wholesale sized containers of crumbled feta cheese in my refrigerator. While clutter and excess pantry items drive Ulysses crazy, that rationale apparently doesn’t apply when it comes to feta. Every time we hit up BJs, we end up spending about $25 on the stuff so he can live up to his Greek name.

And while usually I’m the pantry hoarder, this one drives me crazy. Do you know how much precious realty three huge containers of feta takes up in my fridge?

A lot. So obviously, the only answer is to eat it as fast as possible and then delay the next trip to BJs as long as possible.

These roasted red pepper feta stuffed potato skins do just that. There’s something super fun about throwing a pepper in the oven, sans any baking sheet or dish and just watching it char to a crisp purposely. Unless you have a gas stove, then it’s even more fun without a dirty glass door standing between you and the pepper.

Filling crispy baked potato skins with it and salty feta (and shhhhh…there’s even some cauliflower in there!), you get the ultimate veg out in front of the tv (I won’t say football, but seriously, this is football food) snack or party appetizer.
