Lemon peppery butter peps up pretty, colorful pepper packages. Use them to perk up your favorite meats.
fresh chives (at least 6 inches long) or green part of green onion, cut into thin strips
medium red bell peppers
medium green bell peppers
cup butter or margarine
teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
Place chives in shallow dish. Pour enough boiling water over chives just to cover; let stand 10 seconds so chives become pliable. Drain well; set aside.
Cut each pepper into eighteen 3x1/4-inch strips (there may be extra strips; reserve for another use). To form each bundle, place 3 pepper strips side by side on center of chive. Top with 3 more pepper strips (alternate colors if desired). Tie chive around bundle. Repeat with remaining pepper strips and chives.
Heat all Lemon-Pepper Butter ingredients until butter is melted, stirring occasionally; set aside.
Carefully transfer bundles to 10-inch nonstick skillet; add water. Heat to boiling; boil about 1 minute or until crisp-tender. Remove bundles to small serving plate, using slotted spoon or pancake turner; drizzle with Lemon-Pepper Butter. Serve immediately.
No lemon-pepper seasoning? Use black pepper for a slightly different taste.
