Instructions Checklist
  • Slice the tops off of the cherry peppers and carefully remove the seeds, keeping peppers whole. Wrap a cube of cheese with prosciutto, and stuff into a pepper. If there is still room inside the pepper, stuff in more prosciutto. Repeat with remaining peppers.

  • Place all of the stuffed peppers into a 1 quart jar - or one that your peppers will all fit into, and sprinkle salt over them. Pour in enough olive oil to cover the peppers. Cover, and let stand for 1 hour before eating. Refrigerate leftovers.

My family loves these peppers and when I came across the recipe, I couldn't wait to make them. I made two large jars and then still had left over proscuitto and cheese so ran to get more peppers only to find they were sold out. I bought Hot Banana Peppers instead and stuffed them and all of them were a huge hit!! Read More

These were disgusting. We had already marinated some of our homegrown peppers in a vinegar based marinade and stuffed them as well. The ones in the vinegar based marinade were much better. The oil soaked peppers were nasty! Read More

I love these. I had a little trouble finding the cherry peppers but managed to get them at a big grocery store. I would suggest purchasing at least 18 medium sized peppers and have about 2 1/2 cups of oil for this recipe or use less Prosciutto and Provolone. I used regular olive oil instead of extra virgin olive oil because I prefer the milder taste. When refrigerating the oil may get cloudy but comes back to normal at room temperature. Read More

My husband always asks for these so I usually make a couple of jars at a time. We are originally from outside of Philadelphia where most pizza shoppes sell these. Now we are in Alaska and they are well non-existent. Read More

I don't know why you would need that much oil. I just drizzled a little oil on each pepper then I baked them. They were good! Read More

Delicious and very spicy! The peppers I bought may have been small but I had a lot of prosciutto and provolone leftover. Read More

I used hard salami and a little vinegar with the olive oil I just like that combination. Also just oil appeared to be a little much. Read More

I wish everyone would try these!! I make them every week and keep them in the fridge to snack on whenever I want. Much cheaper to make them yourself than to purchase the premaid poppers at the store (in the jarred pepper isle). They go for 6 for 6 peppers. Delicios...so glad to see a recipe out there for these popper!!! Read More
