It’s Friday! Who’s excited for the weekend? I know I’m looking forward to some downtime. I feel like things have been all go-go-go lately, and I love taking some time to just sit around on the couch and not do anything!
If you’re ready to get your Pau Hana (after work fun time) started, these Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Mini Peppers are the yummiest, easiest pupu (appetizer) ever! Did you like the Hawaiian words I used there? Hawaii is so much apart of me now, I even speak some of the language.
6 mini sweet peppers, sliced in half, seeds and membranes removed
4 oz cream cheese
2 Tablespoons green onions, sliced
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese + extra for topping
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
chopped cilantro for topping, optional
- Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
- Step 2
In a small bowl, beat together the cream cheese, green onions, bacon, garlic powder, cheddar, and worcestershire sauce with an electric mixer until smooth.
- Step 3
Fill the sliced peppers with the filling, about a heaping tablespoon each. Place on prepared cookie sheet, then sprinkle each pepper with a little extra cheese. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly and peppers have softened.
- Step 4
Allow to cool slightly before eating. Sprinkle with a little chopped cilantro if desired. Enjoy!
