Substitute for Mini Peppers 

In this Sweet Pepper Appetizer recipe you can use either the mini peppers, or the regular sized peppers. If using the large peppers, just remove the seeds and the stem, then cut each half into 4 wedges and place the filling inside the wedges.

Subsiitute for Gruyere Cheese

Use the best cheese you can afford for best flavor. I used Gruyere (because that is what I had) and they were wonderful, but even something as simple as mozzarella or cheddar will work if that’s all you got.
