Bacon Wrapped Cream Cheese Stuffed Peppers

I love this recipe because it incorporates my two favorite ingredients, bacon and cream cheese!  My friend, Tenaiya, made this for our 4th of July block party.  In this recipe, you grill the peppers on the bbq, but you can also cook them in the oven at 400 degrees until the bacon is very, very crisp and the peppers are soft.


Mini Bell Peppers

Cream Cheese


Cut the tops off the bell peppers, rinse well, and remove the seeds.  Stuff the peppers with cream cheese.  Wrap each pepper in 1/2 strip of bacon and place a toothpick through the center.

Grill the peppers on the bbq until the bacon is thoroughly cooked, very crisp, and blackened on every side.  The fat from the bacon absorbs into the peppers and cream cheese making these absolutely scrumptious!


  1. Holy cow! This sounds great! I can’t wait to try these! YUMMM! Thanks for the likes on Messy Kitchen, Happy Belly! Looking forward to more of your awesome posts in the future!

  2. Hi Lauren! Yes, place a toothpick through the center to hold the bacon in place. It’s also important to just cut the top off the pepper. This will help keep the cream cheese from spilling out. So glad you liked them!!
