bacon poppersBacon. Peppers. Pineapple.  A simple combination of flavors form the perfect party appetizer.  YUM!
  • 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.
