These delicious pepper cups are just as beautiful to look at as they are to eat! Filled with bacon and eggs and Cabot Cheese, they are perfect for a brunch party when you want to impress your guests.
These pepper cups are easy to put together and a show stopper.
I used Cabot Tomato Basil Cheddar Cheese for the mixture inside of the red pepper cups. It adds a delicious flavor to the pepper cups.
Make the bacon ahead of time on a baking sheet, covered with parchment paper or foil. Place a half a pound of bacon on parchment covered baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes. Drain bacon on a paper towel.
You will need eggs, red peppers, onion, garlic, cilantro, Cabot Tomato Basil Cheddar Cheese for this recipe.
Saute 1/2 cup of chopped onion in a pan with 1 tsp of olive oil on medium low heat. Cook until caramelized and golden brown. Add garlic, cook until fragrant.
Pour onion mixture into a bowl, add cheddar cheese, chopped bacon, and cilantro.
Cut peppers in half lengthwise. Pull out the seeds and membrane. Discard. Cook the peppers in a large pot of boiling water, just enough for the peppers to be tender, not collapsed, around 6 minutes. Let cool slightly.
