These 3 Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers are the perfect way to kick off any meal. Not only are they healthy, but they're also super delicious – filled with cheese and crispy bacon crumbles.



15 mini sweet peppers in assorted colors
6 oz. goat cheese

6 oz. ricotta cheese

3 T. fresh thyme leaves, stems removed
4 strips thick-cut bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
3 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Wash peppers and pat dry. Cut each pepper in half lengthwise, leaving the stem intact. Remove seeds and membranes from each pepper half and discard. Set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, ricotta cheese, thyme leaves, and bacon. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. 

  3. Place the top oven rack in the 2nd highest position and pre-heat broiler to high. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.

  4. With a small spoon, fill each pepper half with the cheese and bacon mixture and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle some of the freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top of each pepper half.

  5. Place the baking sheet on the top oven rack and broil for approximately 4-5 minutes or just until the cheese begins to brown and the peppers start to blister. Remove from oven and cool slightly before transferring the peppers to a serving platter. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
