  • 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.
