Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent recipe. Excellent recipe. Have been making it for several years and always a huge hit. Sometimes I use the bell peppers raw, and it is still great. Just play around with whatever you have or whatever you feel like adding. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and easy! Excellent and easy! I used jarred roasted red bell peppers rather than roasting my own to cut the prep time for a Memorial Day gathering. I also cut the cheese into smaller cubes (resulting in 32 skewers). The 1 ounce cubes were simply too large! They all disappeared and people were asking for more!! Would be fun to experiment with other cheeses and maybe add green or black olives. Maybe next time (and there WILL be a next time)!

I served these skewers for the first at a party and they were a big hit, everyone loved them! So, I decided to make them again to take to the Teacher's luncheon at my son's school. They were the first dish to be completely gone, so I guess they were a hit. i would highly reccomend these if you want to serve something a little different and colorful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I made 20 of these for a big Memorial Day BBQ and came home with 3. I made 20 of these for a big Memorial Day BBQ and came home with 3. I don't know if I didn't roast the peppers right or what, but it just didn't taste that good to me and the texture of the peppers was not good-too slimy. I like the general idea of these, but would not make them again. Too much work for an OK flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd never made roasted peppers before, but they turned out to be really good! I'd never made roasted peppers before, but they turned out to be really good! I put olives on them because my family loves them so much, and I alternated between mozzerela and monterey jack. When cut as directed, the cheese chunks turn out to be really big, which is my only complaint, so that's not too shabby!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are so yummy and easy. These are so yummy and easy. I roasted my own peppers - much better than store bought. All the ingredients really come together for a burst of "summer" in your mouth. Don't forget the fresh basil - it makes all the difference. Highly recommend and I will make over and over again.

I loved them b/c they were super easy, but everyone else loved them b/c the taste was far better than expected from something so simple. It packs a punch in a small, healthy, bite

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used the marinated mozzarella cheese balls that you find at the deli. I used the marinated mozzarella cheese balls that you find at the deli. I also omitted the roasted red pepper. I put them on toothpicks in stead of skewers and they were a wonderful finger food for an outdoor BBQ party I had.
