2 large or 3 small eggs, separated
Place peppers in a bowl and add scalding water to cover. Let stand 30 minutes to 1 hour until softened. Leave stems on and slit down one side removing and discarding all the seeds.
Place one slice of cheese inside each pepper, and dust with flour. Heat the oil.

"Delicious! Will add to the regular repertoire of meals!" - kat4
"I've made this twice (doubled the recipe both times) - definitely a keeper and no comparison to store-bought. My only tweaks: I added a half-tablespoon of garlic salt, crushed the fennel seeds (mortar and pestle) and used a hand-blender when it was done to make it smooth. The leftovers keep really well in the freezer." - cyarcher3
