Holiday Appetizer Idea
These Italian Long Hot Peppers are spicy, well-seasoned, and topped with a delicious crunchy breadcrumb mixture.
Use lots of oil and garlic cloves, plus some of dried herbs and spices. Lemon or orange zest are delicious but optional
Stir 2-3 times throughout to make sure all peppers make contact with the oil and none of them burn.
This step is really easy and can be completed in 2-3 minutes while the peppers are in the oven.
That crunchy topping makes these soft juicy peppers more complex in texture and flavor.
Don't discard that leftover oil in the bottom of the baking dish. This well-seasoned spicy oil is perfect for dipping bread.
