Mmmmm, Peppers Stuffed With Cream Cheese

This is one of those recipes that’s a little hard to share, because I don’t really have a written recipe or measure anything. But the results are delicious! So use this as a starting point and make your own version.

Ingredients:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3-4 pieces of bacon, or more if you like
2-3 scallions, sliced thin & include some of the green part
Some minced garlic
Any kind of peppers you like

Crumble the bacon, and mix it into the cream cheese. Add the garlic and the scallions.

Cut off just the very end of the peppers at the stem end, and make one long slice all the way to the other end. Discard the cut end and the seeds. The pepper is still whole and in one piece otherwise. Using a table knife, put some stuffing into each pepper, making sure it goes all the way to the narrow end. The slit will help you get there. These are largeish and I probably put 2-3 tablespoons of stuffing in each one. Arrange the stuffed peppers on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil (for easy cleanup).

Bake at 350ºF for 15-20 minutes, or until the peppers are starting to soften.

These are large, so I sliced them with a good sharp knife into manageable pieces.

Enjoy!
