    Delicious recipe. I had to use a yellow pepper. Great substitution. This is an easy snack or side dish.

    This worked much much better than I was expecting! So simple, but the different ingredients worked really well together and it was a delicious and satisfying meal. When I grated the feta cheese, I thought that it was going to be far too much, but I was wrong, the quantities stipulated were correct. It would be nice with salad, but today was cold, so we used steamed baby sweet corn and broccoli to go with. Thanks for a great recipe.

    This wasn't great, I wanted to like it but couldn't. The stuffing, all except the outermost layer, was soggy and gross. The egg didn't cook all the way through. I could only make myself eat half. I cooked it at suggested temp for even longer than recommended. Egg was spilling out and cooking directly on the pan. The pepper didn't feel cooked either, it just didn't come together. In a couple of days I'm going to try it without the egg, and eat a hard boiled egg on the side. Fortunately I have vegan protein mix on hand.

    Wat is hot sauce? Is this like harissa? Or like Cayenne proper?

    I haven't tried this yet but whenever I make stuffed peppers I usually steam or microwave the halved peppers before stuffing and baking. This ensures they seem thoroughly cooked when the whole dish comes out of the oven.

    Following the recipe, at first the stuffed peppers seemed a bit soggy, however next day or two after...........I warmed up the leftovers in the microwave, and they were simply great. Will make again. I also did microwave the uncooked peppers in the microwave to soften them up, then proceeded with the recipe.

    nice recapie but for me it was way to much feta.

    This was amazing! I used a red pepper instead (the green ones at the store were small and bruised). I also added some leftover cooked spinach I had. It was so filling, I could only way half of it!! Perfect paired with salad. Great spring meal!

    I loved this recipe. I used 3/4 feta and 1/4 cottage cheese as I felt it might be too strong a flavour. The result was really delicious.

    This was not good! To strong... maybe adding cottage cheese as Cherie suggested would tame the flavor down more. I took one bite and thru the rest away. Very disappointed...

    This tasted just like jalapeno poppers (I didn't have any mint, and I used tabasco for my hot sauce), so I loved the flavor. Strangely though, my mixture came out very dry so I'll have to play around with it. It took no time at all to make, so this will be a repeat recipe for sure!

    Can I use tofu instead of eggs?

    Can I use tofu instead of eggs?

    We have not tested this recipe with tofu instead of eggs. Since the tofu is a solid and eggs are a liquid it may not work well.
