These low-carb Prosciutto Goat Cheese Stuffed Peppers are a great keto appetizer! Make sure to source mini sweet peppers so they’ll be bite sized.

Feeling fancy? A drizzle of balsamic vinegar once removed from the oven is also delicious on these as well.

Don’t have time for cooking? These peppers are also great “raw”, the prosciutto won’t be crispy of course but they’re still delicious!
