These little appetizers are delicious, and easy to make. My grandchildren love them and I can’t seem to make enough of them when they are around.
Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers
Need a last minute appetizer? This versatile recipe comes together in under 15 minutes, but looks and tastes like it took a lot longer.
Wash Peppers and pat dry. Cut each pepper in half lengthwise, leaving the stem intact. Remove seeds and membrane from each pepper half and discard. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, ricotta cheese, thyme leaves, and bacon and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Combine ingredients thoroughly.
With a small spoon, fill each pepper half with the cheese and bacon mixture and arrange on a rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
Top each stuffed pepper half with grated Parmesan cheese and pop into the oven under a preheated broiler set to high.
Broil for approximately 5 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown and peppers start to blister.
Remove from oven and place on a serving plate. Serve immediately.
* Servings depends on how many mini peppers are in the bag.
