- 8 sweet banana peppers
- 1 8oz package softened cream cheese
- 1 small can crushed pineapple – well drained
- ½ teaspoon seasoned salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 green onions – finely chopped
- 8 pieces uncooked bacon
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, well-drained pineapple, seasoned salt, garlic powder and chopped green onions and mix well. Wash peppers and dry each one with a paper towel. Using a paring knife, make a careful cut from the tip of the pepper almost to the other end, stopping right below the stem. Make a couple of slight perpendicular slits below the stem to slightly open the pepper. Spoon enough cream cheese mixture into the pepper, and then carefully wrap the pepper with a piece of uncooked bacon. Continue preparing each pepper with the cream cheese mixture, and wrap with bacon. Place peppers an inch apart on a foil lined baking pan. Bake peppers at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until bacon is thoroughly cooked. Serve right away.
