Last week I had a fabulous girls’ night out at Clothes Mentor. It’s only my favorite consignment store around, with an extra discount, girlfriends, and food – it can’t get much better! I took some easy gourmet and gluten-free appetizers featuring Rose Romano’s Gourmet Marinara Topping. They were really so easy and would be perfect for a holiday party this year.
I made Mini Hamburger and Italian Pepper Stuffed Peppers and Gorgonzola and Italian Pepper Stuffed Crimini Mushrooms. My recommendation is to have a way to keep them warm as they cool easily and they taste better warm. I could eat the stuffed peppers all day long. So yummy you can’t “eat just one”, they are delicious hot or cold. I also love the mushrooms as long as they are warm. I would serve these straight out of the oven at my holiday party.Print

YUM! Both of these look great- perfect for holiday parties!
I’ve never made stuffed peppers, but have seen a bunch of recipes lately and I want to try making these!
They would be awesome pre-made and frozen to heat. I also love them with rice added. I don’t make stuffed peppers nearly enough.
What a yummy recipe!
sounds great, my son would love this, he loves peppers!
Let me know what he thinks. These would be awesome pre-made and frozen then reheated for lunches.
oh yum and I can eat them because they are gluten free! pinning this one for sure!
OMGosh the peppers look so so good. I’m not a mushroom person, but that looks great too!
Yumm.. I love that they are gluten free and the recipe will come in handy this Christmas Season, we have so many parties to attend and each we need to bring something; this is simple and different and I know everyone will love it..thanks for a great idea
Oooh, wow, these look amazing.The perfect appetizer to take to holiday parties. Thank you
These appetizers look really great. I enjoy making a meal out of appetizers! Great for family night.
I have never tried Gorgonzola cheese! These look great though!
If you like blue cheese you would probably like gorgonzola. My husband isn’t a fan but when it is used with a light hand it adds a nice note to dishes without overpowering and he likes it.
I will be trying the mushrooms! I love stuffed mushrooms however I feel guilty eating them around my gluten free friends. Now I can’t wait to surprise them soon. OOHHH I am so excited.
These look wonderful! I’ll be trying them out soon!
thank you! we have a party this weekend and i’m on appetizer duty— some guests are gluten free
These are two great ideas. I have a friend who is now gluten free so I am always searching for ideas to serve when she is here.
I know what you mean. When you really think about it there are so many options but I feel like when I try really hard to figure it out I go blank on interesting things.
What a fantastic idea! Love them. Thanks for the idea
Thank you. 🙂
The mini-peppers look awesome! They would be a great healthier option for a holiday party
I love them so much. I could just keep popping them haha. None to share…
I love this idea! Going to have to give it a try!
I feel like I sometimes get stuck in a “what to make” rut when I want to WOW. It’s always fun to have new ideas.
What a party. Thanks for hosting.
Thank you for joining. 🙂
