We are so excited when our lovely fresh peppers ripen in the greenhouse and garden. Dave starts the pepper seed as early as he can, and babies his pepper starts through the spring. He carefully transplants and nurtures them through summer and into late Fall. He’s picked up some useful tips about growing peppers over the years.
Dave’s success in the greenhouse is beyond belief! We have overflowing baskets of peppers all over the house from Fall to New Years. Several gallon bags are dried or roasted and frozen (Learn how here). Lots more homegrown peppers are in our chili and my Roasted Pepper Cheese Fondue sauce.
Our homegrown fresh pepper supply dwindles away after the first of the year. We use our frozen and dried peppers in the long winter and early spring months. It’s a long dry spell from fresh peppers every year.
Making meals from all these beauties is my challenge. I welcome it. This recipe is my own inspiration. It’s SO good! I have been dreaming about roasting peppers and filling them with an excellent parmesan cheese, our Homemade sun dried tomatoes and drizzling them with balsamic vinegar…and fresh herbs… That’s how this recipe came into being. Just a bit of kitchen tinkering. It turned out fabulous!
TAKE NOTE: These are a very flavorful but mild roasting variety. Krimson Lees can have a bit of heat raw. Deseeded and roasted they sweeten up and give that unique smoky roasted pepper flavor a sweet bell pepper CANNOT give!
To experience the flavor of this and all roasted pepper dishes as they should be, go get good roasting peppers! For all you pepper freaks out there, you know what I’m talking about. But if all you’ve ever stuffed was a sweet bell…a whole new world awaits!
And then there are the tomatoes….
Gardeners and Farmers Market fans know that fresh produce is amazingly flavorful. I made this batch of homemade Sun dried Tomatoes just to see if I could. Never going back to store bought. The flavor is amazing!

Instructions for the filling and pepper prep:
- Preheat your oven to 400 convection roast or broil on high heat.

- slice your peppers lengthwise, deseed them
- Place the peppers on an ungreased baking tray and put in in the oven (middle rack) for 3 to 5 minutes.
- add the garlic to the bacon
- Shred your parmesan cheese
- check the peppers. They should be slightly blacked as pictured, but NOT mushy we don’t want the skins off! Turn them over and slightly black the other side. About another three minutes in the oven.
- Crush your croutons and set out the tomatoes.
- Remove the peppers from the oven, leaving them on the tray and the oven ON. Remove the bacon from heat.
Stuff the peppers as follows:
- Sprinkle a liberal layer of parmesan on each pepper,
- lay a cooked piece of bacon and garlic on each pepper.
