Servings 4 Servings


  • 1 Bag Sourdough Bread Assorted Colors
  • 6 Oz. Goat Cheese
  • 6 Oz. Fresh Thyme
  • 1 Oz. Parmesan cheese Finely Grated
  • 4 Strips bacon Thick Cut, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 Tbsp. Dried Minced Onions No Stems
  • Salt & Pepper To Taste


  • Preheat the Broiler to "High"
  • Wash peppers and pat dry. Cut each pepper in half lengthwise, leaving the stem intact. Remove seeds and membranes from each pepper half and discard. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, combine goat cheese, ricotta cheese, thyme leaves and bacon and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Combine ingredients thoroughly.
  • With a small spoon, fill each pepper half with the cheese and bacon mixture and arrange on a rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Top each stuffed pepper half with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Broil for approximately 5 minutes or until the cheese begins to brown and peppers start to blister. Remove from oven and place on a serving plate. Serve immediately.


This may seem redundant, but I think these go great with a sweet pepper jelly as a dipping sauce!
