Ingredients
 

  • 3 ounces soft goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 2 small garlic cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 30 peppadew peppers

Instructions
 

  • Grate the garlic into a bowl using a fine rasp grater or a microplane. Squeeze the lemon juice over the garlic, stir, and let sit for a few minutes. The acid from the lemon helps to mellow the sharpness of the raw garlic.
  • Add the goat cheese to the bowl along with the cream cheese and salt. Stir with a spoon to combine well. You can let the cheeses soften for 10-15 minutes at room temperature if it's difficult to combine them. Stir in the scallions.
  • Use a rubber spatula to scrape the mixture into a small ziplock back or piping bag. Cut the tip off so there is a quarter inch opening. Squeeze the goat cheese into the peppadews so they are about ¾ full. If you have extra filling left over at the end, you can fill a few more peppers if you have them, or just add it to top off already filled peppers. The peppers can be filled a few hours ahead and refrigerated.

Notes

  • Can be made 2-3 hours ahead and refrigerated until serving.
  • Most people don’t have piping bags in their pantry. Here’s a simple trick to make your own:
    • Find a suitably sized resealable bag and scoop in the mixture you’ll be piping.
    • On the bottom of the resealable bag, cut the tip of one corner with a pair of kitchen shears. Start small- you can always increase the size of the opening.
    • Squeeze the bag from the top down.
