Number of Servings: 4


    4 fresh banana peppers
    2 slices cooked bacon
    1 plum tomato, diced
    3 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, diced
    1 tablespoon chopped parsley
    1/2 cup panko* (Japanese breadcrumbs)

    *You can substitute regular breadcrumbs if need be.


Serve these as an appetizer or unexpected side dish at your next barbecue!


Preheat a grill to medium heat.

Wash the peppers and cut off the stems.

Using a small spoon or vegetable peeler, scoop out the seeds.

Combine the remaining ingredients and stuff them into the peppers. Wrap each pepper in a piece of aluminum foil, taking care to cover the tops tightly.

Place the foil packets on the grill so they stand upright, which will keep the filling inside the peppers.

Cook with grill lid closed for 10 minutes.

Serve immediately.

    Loved, loved, loved this! My husband didn't want to grill so I cooked them in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes and they came out so delicous. I used smoked gouda cheese, turkey bacon (I prefer real but that's all I had on hand), and regular Italian bread crumbs. Will make again and again - 12/15/09

    Use hot banana peppers instead of sweet for a little more bite. Good recipe! - 9/29/09

    We wrapped them in foil and then placed them in a deep skillet on top of the stove. They cooked on high heat for 10-12 minutes. These were easy and yummy. - 12/6/09
