Roasted pepper & mozzarella appetizers; and Roasted pepper rollups (aired 9/21/2010)

Roasted pepper rollups


  • 1 package (3 1/2 oz) soft cream cheese spread with herbs or vegetables
  • 4 extra-large flour tortillas
  • 1 bag (6 oz.) baby spinach
  • 8 oz. thinly sliced salami or ham
  • 8 oz thinly sliced Havarti or swiss cheese
  • 1 Roasted red bell pepper or 1 jar (7 oz) roasted red bell peppers, drained and sliced into strips


  • Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of cream cheese close to edge of each tortilla.
  • Layer each tortilla evenly with ¼ of spinach, meat and cheese.
  • Lay thin strips of roasted peppers along center of each tortilla.
  • Tightly roll tortilla into a spiral.
  • Slice off and discard ends.
  • Repeat with remaining tortillas and filling.
  • Cut rolls into 1 1/2 inch slices and secure with toothpicks.

Roasted pepper & mozzarella appetizers


  • 2 bell peppers, one yellow and one red
  • 1 tub fresh mozzarella, preferably the cherry sized
  • olive oil salt
  • pepper and/or seasoning you like (I like Montreal Steak Seasoning for this)
  • fresh basil


  • If you did not have your peppers roasted at the market - Set oven to broil.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Place the whole peppers on the foil and place under broiler.
  • When the tops of the peppers have turned black, take tongs and rotate peppers.
  • Keep turning peppers until the skin is completely charred.
  • Place peppers in a brown paper lunch sack or in a large zip lock bag.
  • Close.
  • Let steam for 10 minutes.
  • Remove peppers to a cutting board and let cool.
  • After peppers have cooled, skins will slip off easily.
  • Remove all of the skin and then cut peppers in half, removing stem carefully so peppers don't tear.
  • Remove seeds carefully.
  • Slice each pepper half into about 5 or 6 strips.
  • Season pepper strips.
  • Drain 20 to 22 mozzarella balls.
  • Place mozzarella in small bowl and drizzle some olive oil on them.
  • Sprinkle some salt and pepper and/or your seasoning (don't be skimpy with the salt) and toss.
  • Take each mozzarella ball and wrap with a strip of pepper.
  • Secure with a toothpick and place on serving platter.
  • Repeat with remaining.
