I saw some nice bellpeppers at the grocery a couple of days ago and I knew I just had to make them into these...

Stuffed Bellpeppers


  • bellpeppers (too bad the grocery store only had green colored sure some yellow and red ones would liven up the dish!)
  • bacon, rice (steamed), tomatoes, cheese, eggplant, okra
  • pepper, salt


  • Cut out the upper part of the bellpeppers, including the seeds. Immerse in pot with water and boil for around five minutes. Remove once done, and sprinkle salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • Dice the other ingredients (bacon, tomatoes, eggplant, and okra). Place bacon first in hot pan, then when turning to be a bit crispy, add in the other diced ingredients. Cook until wilted, then add the steamed rice. Season with salt and pepper, if you want. Set aside to let cool for easier handling.
  • Take one bellpepper and stuff with the rice-veggie-bacon mix. Top with generous amounts of cheese. Do the same with the other bellpeppers.
  • Using the oven toaster, I placed them inside until the cheese got burnt and bubbly. I had to rotate them every now and then since the temperature was way too high...I think I would have gotten a much better result if I covered them with aluminum foil. Cooking took about twenty minutes.
  • Sliced the bellpeppers and added some more cheese before they were devoured.

My sons liked them, even if the eldest normally doesn't like okra and eggplant. lol. I guess the bacon and cheese did it for him. He asked if we can make them again during Christmas day. :)

i like stuffed bell peppers but with ground pork, and no eggplant and okra, please!:p
bell peppers are still expensive, and it'll be more expensive in the coming days.

I'd make this without the bacon for a meatless entree. I love the golden brown melted cheese topping. I'm getting hungry.:)

@LM: indeed, so expensive! am glad my sons ate their portions! the ones I read cooked their rice together with the other ingredients, but I went for the easy way - used cooked rice. I think your ground pork will be tasty, too!

@ Ms. Oggi and Ms. Marge: cheese makes everything taste better! :)

thanks so much ladies, for playing this week! much much appreciated!

This is one of the dishes I hope to try, but I am the only one in the family who loves eating bell peppers
