Are you looking for a fun, delicious, and DIFFERENT side to add to your summer barbecue?  Do I have the recipe for you!!

I’ve been making these for years, but thought they were probably a little too labor intensive to share on Southern Bite.  I made them a few weeks ago and was reminded of just how amazingly delicious they were and decided I just had to share them.  And the truth is… they’re really not that much work.  Sure, they take a little time, but they are difficult at all.

Just imagine the cheesy, bacony goodness of a twice baked potato stuffed into a flavorful bell pepper that then gets grilled to add that smoky flavor!  They’re seriously amazing.

I love using Borden® Triple Cheddar Shredded Cheese in these.  For generations creamy, delicious Borden® Cheese has been crafted with high-quality, wholesome ingredients and the same genuine love and care that you find on American, family-owned farms.  That’s because Borden® Cheese is brought to you by more than 8,000 family farms across the US.  And I love doing everything I can to support those family-owned farms.

I also like using a variety of colors of bell peppers for this just because the varying colors are pretty.  Feel free to use whatever you like best.  Did you know that green, yellow, orange, and red peppers are all from the same plant?  They are!  The color variation is just based on how ripe the pepper is.  They start green and have more of a bitter flavor.  Next, they ripen to yellow, orange, then red.  With each color they lose more bitterness and get a little sweeter, therefore the red peppers are the sweetest and least bitter.  You’ll find the colored peppers a bit more expensive in the grocery store because they have to stay on the plant longer and take more water and care than the young, green peppers.  See… you learn something new every day!

Regardless of the color, I just know y’all are going to love these.  They’re the absolute perfect side to add some excitement to your summer barbecue… and they look cool too!

If you don’t have a grill, don’t fret!  These can absolutely be finished off in the oven.  You’ll miss out on that smoky grilled flavor, but they’ll still be ridicuously delicious!  Just bake them at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until the potato filling is heated through and the peppers are soft.

Grilled Twice Baked Potato Stuffed Peppers
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 6 peppers
Ingredients
  • 3 large baking potatoes
  • 3 large bell peppers (any color)
  • ½ cup crumbled bacon
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1½ cups Borden® Triple Cheddar Shredded Cheese
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and wash the potatoes under cool water. Dry them and prick them each a few times with a fork. Place the potatoes on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour (or longer depending on the size of the potato). When done, the potato should be very soft when gently squeezed. Remove them from the oven and allow to cool enough to handle.
  2. While the potatoes bake, slice each pepper in half from stem downward. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and membranes.
  3. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice each one in half and scoop out the flesh into a medium bowl. Add the bacon, sour cream, butter, cheese, green onions, and garlic powder. Mix gently to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Scoop the potato mixture into the peppers evenly, being sure to press it into all of the cavity.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium heat (about 350°F) and place the peppers on. Cook with the lid closed for 15 to 20 minutes or until the pepper is starting to char and the mixture is heated through and just bubbling around the edges. Serve warm.
Notes
No grill? Finish in the oven at 350°F for about 20 minutes.

    Oh Stacey,
    These look sooooo good! I just absolutely love stuffed Bell peppers and these are different, being they are stuffed with a baked potato mixture! I’m going to the grocery store tomorrow and get some Bell peppers so I can fix these this weekend for sure.
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. I have a copy of your cookbook and I even gave one to my best friend for her birthday. And yes, we both have tried many of the recipes in the cookbook. Now….how long do I wait for the next cookbook? LOL!
    Thanks again Stacey for your wonderful blog.

    • I sure hope you’ll enjoy these peppers as much as I do! And thanks so much for your kind words! Hearing of folks not only enjoying, but giving my book as a gift is the ultimate compliment!

  2. Yum! What a delicious looking idea!

    Does the okra slummy inside when grilled? I read an article to par boil in vinegar water in and out then into a ice bath to stop the sliminess of the okra. Have you tried this ?

    • I don’t think it’s slimey at all. I’ve heard several techniques using vinegar, but never tried any of them. You can always slice them in half lengthwise before grilling and that should help too.
