Stuffed Banana Peppers

Print PrintShare with Friends


The garden overflows with peppers so I made up this recipe. We enjoyed it, and I hope you do too. Another variation would be to leave the peppers whole just cut off the top, scoop out the seeds & membrane, mix the cheese in with the other stuffing ingredients and stuff the peppers from the top. Bake time would be approximately the same. Serve as an appetizer or a side dish As you can see by the photo, you may substitute small colored bell peppers, anaheim or any other surplus garden pepper you may have, yes even jalapenos!
