    Just a suggestion I found helped keep the cheese in the pepper. When you cut off the stem end leave enough of the pepper so that you have a solid end. When you cut the pepper in half it looks like a little boat. This keeps the melted cheese from running out.I precook the bacon slightly so that I don't have to turn them and bake them at 400 till the bacon is crisp instead of broiling them. I've been doing this for years and have always had good luck. Joan  -  01 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The guys really digged these at our last football party. My only suggestion is pre-cook the bacon to at least the soft stage to make sure it is crispy and line the baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.  -  21 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These were pretty good. I used pre-cooked bacon and only broiled 2-3 minutes. I also have made them with cream cheese. I mixed shredded sharp cheddar, 4 oz. cream cheese and a few seeds for some heat and broiled for 2-3 minutes. My family liked this better. By using the pre-cooked bacon and only broiling for 3 minutes, my cheese didn't melt all over the pan.  -  17 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
