Updated December 12, 2012

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 12 mini sweet bell peppers, any color (about 3 inches long; from 8-oz bag)
  • 1/4 cup pimiento cheese (from 12-oz container)
  • Toothpicks

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Line microwavable plate with microwavable paper towel. Place bacon on plate; cover with microwavable paper towel. Microwave on High 2 minutes or until limp. Cut each slice in half crosswise; set aside.
  • 2
    Cut lengthwise slit in each pepper, leaving stem end intact. Spoon about 1 teaspoon cheese into each pepper. Wrap 1 piece of bacon around each pepper, securing with toothpick.
  • 3
    Place peppers on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning often, until bacon is crisp and peppers are slightly tender. Serve warm.

  • To prevent ends of toothpicks from burning on the grill, submerge toothpicks in water for at least 30 minutes before using.
