Bacon Gouda Stuffed Bell Peppers
Sweet bell peppers stuffed with a simple mixture of bacon and Gouda cheese. Great for the mild-loving crowd, or add a pinch of cayenne for heat!
- 8 small/medium green bell peppers
- 1 pound bacon
- 3 cups finely shredded aged Gouda cheese
- 1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/3 teaspoon black pepper
Cook bacon in a large pan over medium-high heat until crispy. Drain on paper towels then crumble. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Slice each pepper in half, remove the seeds and thick membranes, then slice each half in half again.
In a medium bowl, combine the shredded Gouda, garlic powder, and black pepper. Toss with your hands to mix.
Place a little crumbled bacon in the middle of each slice of pepper, top with a pinch of cheese mixture to cover. Place on a parchment paper lined large baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 13-15 minutes or until cheese is golden and peppers are sizzling. Serve warm.
