Cheesy Banana Pepper Spread

I’m not a huge fan of banana peppers but my dad gave me some of his extra plants and I ended up with a bunch of banana peppers.  We’ve been eating some, but I figured the best way to eat something you don’t really like is to cover it in cheese.

Cheesy Banana Pepper Spread

5 banana peppers chopped

8 oz. cream cheese

2 cups shredded cheese

2 heels of bread (for breadcrumbs)

Olive oil

Black pepper

Soften the cream cheese in the microwave for about 15-30 seconds.  Add in chopped banana peppers and 1 1/2 cup shredded cheese.  Mix well.  Top with final 1/2 cup cheese, bread crumbs, and black pepper.  Drizzle olive oil over top and bake at 250° for about 10 minutes.

It’s a really good spread on crackers, but we think it would go great with seafood.  Possibly chopped up shrimp in it as a sort of shrimp salad type thing.  You could also use more peppers or different types of peppers.  I don’t have a great picture, but it really was good.
