A fun twist on a popular finger food! Once fermented, the stuffed peppers are a little delicate, so it takes some extra care to put these poppers together, but it’s very doable and worth it. If you would like to use a hard cheese instead of cream cheese, choose an aged one like Kasseri that doesn’t run when it melts.
Ingredients
  • 10 Carrot-Stuffed Hot Peppers
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 10 strips bacon (or 5 strips, cut lengthwise, if the bacon is very thick)
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Slit each pepper lengthwise along one side to open it slightly. Leaving the carrot stuffing in place, add about 1 teaspoon of cream cheese

  3. Wrap the stuffed pepper tightly with a strip of bacon.

  4. Place the poppers on a baking sheet (or a wire rack set on a baking sheet), with the slit side up and the bacon ends tucked underneath. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the bacon has reached your desired crispness. Serve hot.
