Recipe: Bacon and Veggie Stuffed Peppers

These makes a delicious light lunch or a a side for a yummy hunk of meat.

They are simple but delicious and I just ate 2 leftover ones as I couldn't leave them until tomorrows lunch!

Makes 2 - 3 half peppers depending on their size.

1-1.5 bell peppers cut length ways.
1 tomato de-seeded and finely chopped
4 streaky bacon slices, cut into cubes
2 spring onions, chopped
1 garlic clove chopped finely
1/4 Courgette cut into small pieces
1 beaten egg
5 walnut halves, roughly chopped
1 tsp Italian herbs
1 tbsp of olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Half and de-seed the peppers and place in an oven proof dish. Season the inside of each half with salt and pepper.
Mixed all remaining ingredients, except the egg and walnuts, into a bowl and mix well.
Add the beaten egg and spoon into the pepper halves.
Top with the walnuts and place in oven.
Bake for 30-35 mins at 200C or until pepper is tender.

  1. Thanks for this yummy recipe but can I replace bacons with chicken pieces or fish? because I don't like bacon. Let me know the alternate of it.
