Since I’ve been watching what I eat and making an effort to lose the baby weight, I’ve adopted a low-carb Keto diet. It’s all the rage right now and it’s basically very little carbs, moderate protein and high fat. Whether you’re on Keto or not, these Bacon and Cream Cheese Stuffed Peppers are Ah-mazing. They are easy to make and you can serve them as the perfect keto appetizer.
Everything is better with bacon – so crisp some bacon in a pan to get that perfect texture. Just create your mix, slice your pepper lengthwise and stuff. I baked mine in the oven, but you could also do it on the grill. If you use that alternative method, a pepper holder for the grill makes it a lot easier – you’d just stuff from the top instead of lying flat.
Whichever way you make these, I promise they’ll be a big hit with guests and nobody would guess that they’re low-carb healthy.
