Grumpy and I both crave tangy foods. Peppers to olives, and pickles. If there is a jar around, you can guarantee it isn’t going to take long to hit the bottom of said jar!

Grumpy and I love to chow down on the peppers straight from the jar. we also love to buy the slices and put them on subs and pizza. Not to forget we love to eat them in salads and in dips too! I love taking my everyday recipes to crave worthy with Mezzetta Golden Greek Peperoncini!

I decided to make a unique spin on the classic baked slider recipe. We are beef loving people and these peperoncini peppers go so well with beef. Chopping some of the peperoncini and adding them to the barbecue beef mixture was an inevitable.
