Grill or oven ready
When it isn’t grilling season, these stuffed peppers can be heated through in the oven. Simply preheat the oven to 350° F. Pop the stuffed peppers into the oven for 10 minutes. Heat through. Then top them with the crumbled crisps and the Parmesan, and pop them back in the oven for 5 minutes to brown the tops.
Want to make these stuffed appetizers ahead of time. Easy peasy!
Simply fill the peppers, and store them in the fridge until you’re ready to cook them up. They can be made up to a day ahead of time.
To defrost spinach:
Remove the frozen block of spinach from the paper box and place it on a microwave safe plate.
Microwave the spinach on high power for 3-7 minutes (microwave times will vary based on different power levels). Stir after every couple of minutes to try to break up any icy chunks. The spinach is done when there are no more icy spots.
Alternatively to microwaving it, you can thaw it under warm running tap water. Remove the frozen block of spinach from the paper box, and place the block in a mesh strainer and run it under very warm water. Feel around for icy chucks, and break them apart with your fingers.
How to drain the liquid off the spinach
For this dish you want the spinach to be pretty dry, so in order to get that, you’ll need to squeeze as much liquid out of thawed spinach as possible. There are a couple of ways the liquid can be drained off.
1. Place the thawed spinach in a fine mesh sieve, and allow the liquid to drain. Then take a wooden spoon and press down on the spinach to press all the liquid out.
2. You can also grab a handful of spinach and squeeze the water out of the spinach. Your hands will get a little messy, but that’s fine.
3. Place the thawed spinach in a clean dry cotton cloth towel. Wrap the towel around the spinach and squeeze the water out of the spinach.
