Do you often wonder what to serve as an appetizer? What to serve at a Super Bowl party? What to have ready for a small group? What about a few friends coming over? I find myself constantly scratching my head.
The trouble is, once the guests arrive, I want the ability to be present — greet them, spend time with them — and not be worrying about actively cooking.
Since I discovered these little Stuffed Pepper Poppers, I feel like all my worries have slid away. They are simple to make, a hands-off appetizer, and beyond delicious! I put them in the oven to cook, then transfer them to a serving tray and done! All your guests are sure to love them and you will be able to be a relaxed and engaging host. It is a win-win for everyone!
We have typically eaten a few before the guests even arrive because they are irresistible! I know you will love them, too.Print Recipe
Stuffed Pepper Poppers
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 3 slices bacon, cooked
- 1.5 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 10-15 mini sweet peppers
- Cook the bacon to your preference. I like to bake my bacon on a baking sheet at 425 degrees for approximately 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Chop the bacon into small bits.
- In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, bacon, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, red pepper flakes, and shredded cheese.
- Cut the tops off of each pepper. Cut the pepper in half vertically, so you end up two long halves.
- Put the filling into a piping bag or a gallon size bag. Cut the tip off the end of the bag.
- Gently pipe a generous helping of filling into each pepper slice.
- Place the stuffed peppers on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is slightly browned.
