Mini bell peppers, stuffed with sharp cheddar, wrapped in bacon and baked. What’s not to like?


Yield: 12 servings

  • 4 oz smoked cheddar
  • 12 mini bell peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and fit it with a wire rack. Lightly spray the wire rack with olive oil.
