I had these really really nice once where the pepper was actually "stuffed" with the cheese-based filling mmm mouth watering as I type. But most places when you ask for stuffed peppers you get pepper cut into strips and fried (I think) with the stuffing on top. Still nice but not as good.

You need to use feta cheese - sirene in Bulgarian. It mixes with the eggs just fine, use a fork, crack the egg on top of the cheese and mash. add black pepper and some fine-chopped parsley(if you like). If you don't have feta you can use cottage cheese but you will need to add some salt.Stuff the roasted and pealed peppers with the mixture and dip them in flower, then egg, then crumbs. Fry in a pan with some oil.
This is a typical Bulgarian winter dish, easy to prepare since all the peppers from the garden have been roasted and frozen or put in jars in the basement.
Now you made me hungry and no real peppers in Japan... :cry:

We don't use feta cheese that much - we use ordinary brine cheese from cow's milk.
Don't mash the cheese too finely; the mixture should be lumpy so the egg does not run out. If you have the tops of the peppers with the stems, you can put them back on, while cooking the peppers - another little trick to stop the egg leaking :-). :D
