My family loves entertaining! Recently we had 30 people over at our house to celebrate our favorite holiday. And this cheesy pepper poppers recipe? Well, they’re always a hit at holiday parties! Oh, where are my manners?! I want to thank De’Longhi for sponsoring this crazy delicious post so you can spice up your holiday with an amazing appetizer recipe!
I love it when I invite friends and family over and they spy a tray of holiday appetizers on the serving table. They know they’ve hit the jackpot! Who doesn’t love to dig into some cheesy, fried comfort food?
I’ll be honest. The idea of creating a fried recipe is a little intimidating — but that’s where this AWESOME deep fryer by De’Longhi comes in. The Livenza Deep Fryer with EasyClean System takes the guess work out of deep frying. With all the programmable features I don’t have to worry about my breading falling apart because the oil isn’t the perfect temperature. It’s like having another set of helping hands that majors in the art of fried food. Tempting, huh?
Having a machine that helps you deep fry can change your world — especially if you’re a busy mom who loves to host friends and family! And messy, leftover oil? It’s so much easier to clean up!
Now I’m not intimidated by making my family’s favorite fried chicken tenders! And these cheesy pepper poppers? No problem! With this modern kitchen gadget I can fire up the deep fryer, wait a few minutes, drop some goodies in the basket, pour in the oil and fry! And you’ll definitely want to drop these cheesy poppers in! Just look at how pretty they are when they’re all rolled up waiting to be breaded and sunk into your favorite frying oil!
Annnd….I’m kind of a nut about gadgets and small appliances in my kitchen. You will not find an electric can opener, food processer etc. gracing my kitchen counters. NO ma’am. I despise cluttered kitchen counters! If appliances get to stay on my counters, they have to be cute — I mean CUTE! Did I mention this pretty fryer is stainless steel? Two of my favorite words when it comes to kitchen appliances! Check out this beauty in action below!
But guess what? This fryer fried up some gorgeous, cheese-filled pepper poppers. Mmm-hmmm. If you’ve ever fried cheese-filled appetizers you know it can get tricky. The filling can pour out and make such a yucky mess. This fryer creates beautiful, perfectly fried, cheese-filled goodies. So don’t be afraid to try mozzarella sticks and crab rangoon egg rolls!
But to add a fun festive touch to the holidays we’re going to use red and green peppers in our poppers. Get it — red and green? Those colors always make me want to belt out “Have yourelf a Merry Little Christmas…” But, I’ll refrain —this time.
Oh, and since we’re talking about the holidays, guess what? Go ahead — guess! Ok, I’ll fill you in! De’Longhi is getting full of the holiday spirit and promoting a very close-to-my-heart cause.
