Bacon and Goat Cheese Stuffed Mini Peppers
These bacon goat cheese stuffed mini peppers are the perfect party appetizer that's delightfully cheesy, packed with savory flavors, and looks extra colorful on a platter!
Servings: 6 servings
- 12 mini bell peppers
- 6 slices bacon
- 8 ounces soft goat cheese
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 1 clove garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 400F/200C. Place the bacon on a baking sheet and cook for 18-20 minutes, or until it's crispy. Transfer it to a paper towel to cool. *Note: I'm cooking an entire package of bacon, but only 6 slices are needed for this recipe.
While the bacon is cooking, slice the mini peppers in half and scoop out the seeds.
Add the goat cheese, red onion, minced garlic, parsley, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl. Once the bacon has cooled, crumble it with your hands into the bowl, and stir together.
Stuff the mini peppers with the bacon goat cheese mixture, and place them on a baking sheet. Bake the stuffed mini peppers for 10 minutes at 400F/200C, or until the mini pepper is slightly softened. Remove them from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a plate.
Serve them warm and if you'd like, sprinkle a little extra chopped parsley on top.
