‘Tis the season for celebrating! The holiday season is my absolute favorite time of the year! This is the time we can all gather with friends and family to eat, drink, and have a lot of fun! Holiday celebrations have become very popular over the last few years. Our holiday parties are always a potluck format. Everyone brings their favorite appetizer or dish and we all dig in.
Everyone LOVES bacon. Throwing a creative twist on a classic appetizer is a definite way to please your guests. Smithfield offers a variety of flavors and bacon cuts, like Cherrywood Thick Cut or the classic Hometown Original. Smithfield’s bacon is known for being smoked and cured to perfection. My favorites are the Hometown Original and Cherrywood Thick Cut. These cuts work wonderfully in dishes that require crumbled bacon.
How Long Do I Bake Stuffed Peppers For?
I prefer to broil stuffed peppers. This method cuts down cook-time dramatically. First, I parboil the peppers in hot water. This softens the peppers and results in reduced bake time. After the peppers are stuffed, I broil them in the oven for 3-5 minutes.
How Do You Make Bacon Stuffed Peppers?
Cook the Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon until it becomes crisp. Crumble the bacon and add it to the remaining ingredients for the stuffed pepper filling. Stuff the peppers with the bacon and veggie filling.
What to Serve with Stuffed Peppers?
These stuffed peppers pair well with any main or side dish! From slow-cooked bacon to classic holiday hams, Smithfield has easy recipes to pair with this dish. Smithfield has you completely covered this holiday season.
Can You Freeze Stuffed Peppers?
Yes, you can. Be sure to allow the peppers to cool completely first. To defrost, remove them the night before and place them in the refrigerator.
