This is a delicious and easy to prepare recipe that you will love! helped me come up with the idea. They use jalepenos, but I prefer banana peppers.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the tops off of all the peppers and discard stems.
  2. Remove insides of peppers with a paring knife being careful not to puncture the peppers.
  3. Stuff each pepper with a mixture of the cheeses until they are full to the top.
  4. Cut each slice of bacon into 3 sections.
  5. Wrap the small section of bacon over the top of each pepper securing with a toothpick on the sides to create a "lid" for the peppers.
  6. Stick your kabob skewer through all the peppers width-wise (near the top or widest part of the pepper).
  7. Set the peppers upright in the bread pan so the cheese will not seep out as it melts. (The skewer will help prop them up).
  8. Set the pan of peppers on a baking sheet in case any grease drippings occur from the bacon.
  9. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 400 degrees or until the bacon is crisp.
