Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Banana Peppers

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Banana Peppers

I love pickled banana peppers but have never tried fresh ones right out of the garden. My mom's friend was growing these "just to grow them" so she gave some for me to have. Just a note here, the smaller peppers are more spicy than the larger ones. They don't compare to a jalapeno spice or cayenne but they can surprise you!

Well, mom went online and found a recipe and let me try it and I was hooked. Bacon is awesome and if it's crispy and wrapped around something, it makes it even more delicious. You can create any type of stuffed pepper if you want to. Use chicken inside, scrambled eggs, crumbled sausage or make it however you'd like. The possibilities on this are endless.
Don't hate on the scraps for my compost bin!
Depending on serving sizes, 1-2 as a side, 3-4 as an entree:
Banana peppers
Bacon slices
Chopped Onion
Chopped Bell Peppers
Chopped Tomatoes
Shredded Cheese

Directions:Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut tops off banana peppers and butterfly from bottom tip to cut top (See pictures for reference). Remove seeds and ribs and stuff with the above ingredients. Wrap bacon around the peppers and secure it with a toothpick.

Bake at 400degrees for 8 minutes then broil on low for 5-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your bacon. The peppers will soften, the cheese will have melted and the bacon will be crispy. Remove from oven and eat!
Sooooo good!

Eat and enjoy!
