Cream Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers with Sausage

I used to go all out when entertaining at home. But I’ve grown wiser over the years. A stress-free hostess is a happy hostess!

The focus should be on getting dear friends and family together, not setting the perfect table and serving a 12 course meal.  Though I still aim to serve excellent food, I’d rather be a relaxed hostess than a crazy woman trapped in the kitchen! These super easy, cream cheese stuffed mini peppers with sausage are a cinch to prepare and will be the hit of any gathering!

Easy Entertaining with #DivineFlavor

Every year, I host my book club, dinner club and have a 4th of July neighborhood party. Plus there are those family holiday gatherings as well as having friends over for coffee, food demos, and of course, dinner. I’ve learned a few tricks for easy entertaining.

  • Be interactive in the kitchen. That’s where everyone gathers, so why not have your guests lend a hand.
  • Set your table the day before. No need for fine china and crystal. My everyday white plates show off colorful foods like these gorgeous stuffed peppers beautifully!
  • Supplement your menu with dinner rolls from the bakery, chunks of cheese and crackers from the grocery store, and never refuse when one of your guests asks to bring a dish!

  11. These peppers look wonderful, Liz. I love it that they are not breaded, why add the extra calories? I know exactly what you mean about going overboard hosting, I planned and prepared a sit-down dinner for about 10 (JT’s birthday) and I was literally in the kitchen for 14 hours. I was so exhausted at night that I hardly enjoyed the gathering. Now, I do things in stages, preparing days before so I’m not too tired to enjoy the festivities. We also have hired a lovely woman to help with receiving, making sure the plates are full and cleanup, I feel like a guest at my own party! I’ll have to keep my eyes open for these gorgeous peppers in April when we return to Arizona! 🙂

  12. These colorful peppers are so festive! I bet they didn’t last long once guests arrived.
