These are so easy to make… are you beginning to sense a theme with my cooking? Yesterday I whipped up a platter of these and brought them outside to my sons’ friends that were hanging out in yard with him. Yes I realize teenage boys will eat anything, but they will also tell you if it isn’t good while they are eating it. They inhaled the peppers.
One boy picked one up off of the platter and said, very seriously, “Everything is better with bacon.” If I had a teenage daughter I would have immediately proposed an arranged marriage.
These are great party appetizers and can be served hot or room temperature. I had meant to make them for the Fourth of July, but I never got around to it.
You will need:
block of cream cheese
Yes, that is all you need. I know, it almost doesn’t count as a recipe! Except it does, because it is delicious.
Behold! The peppers.
Cut the top off of your peppers and remove the seeds. The seeds are where all of the hotness resides in the pepper. Once the seeds are removed the peppers really are not very hot at all.
Stuff the peppers with cream cheese.
Did you hear that? That was the sound of the heavenly angels singing.
That pepper in the middle? All mine.
Wrap your peppers in bacon and place them on a foil lined baking pan. You do want a pan with a lip since the bacon will make grease and could potentially catch your oven on fire. Not that I would know anything about that. Ahem.
Place in the oven at 375 degrees for 20 minutes. Then turn your oven to broil and cook 5 additional minutes.
You might want to eat some yourself before you offer them to any teenage boys in the area. Just sayin’
