Cheesy Stuffed Sweet Peppers with Bacon Recipe

Disclosure Affiliate

I always see these cute little peppers in the store but am never sure what to make with them besides just eating them as is or with a yummy veggie dip. SO, I was super glad to come up with another way to put them to use.

One of my favorite dishes to make is stuffed peppers. Normally I make them the traditional way with rice, ground beef and sauce. This time we wanted to try something different. These bacon & cheese stuffed sweet peppers were a huge hit – even the kids liked them! They usually won’t eat the traditional-style stuffed peppers!

These cute little guys make a perfect party appetizer, lunch, game day food or side to a big Italian meal!
