Ingredients

  • 6 red and yellow salad peppers
  • 4 rashers of bacon
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 2 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • Handful of raisins
  • 2 tbsps fresh cilantro or coriander chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint chopped
  • Freshly grated black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and lightly oil a baking tray or dish.
  • Slice off the tops of the peppers and scoop out as much of the seeds and filament as possible. Use a teaspoon to scrape them out easily
  • In a pan, fry bacon and when it is half cooked add the garlic and fry till lightly golden. In a bowl mix together fried bacon and garlic with all the other ingredients except the oil. I do not add salt since the feta and bacon compensate.
  • Stuff the peppers with the mix, leaving a few millimetres of space at the opening. Drizzle olive oil to coat the peppers and grill them for 10 minutes before turning them over. Grill for a further 7-10 minutes or till done.
