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.

Stuffed Pepper Poppers

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Course Appetizer
Servings 12 servings


  • 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.
