I lb. bag mixed mini peppers
1 pkg; thick cut bacon
1 8 oz. pkg. Brie
fresh basil leaves
toothpicks for securing bacon
Par cook the bacon slices in microwave. With this recipe, you can make as many as the bag holds, but a rule of thumb is 1 slice of bacon will wrap 4 peppers.
Halve the peppers and remove the seeds and fibrous membrane.
Slice Brie to fit the size of the peppers, which will vary slightly.
Place piece of cheese in pepper and top with a fresh basil leaf. I used a scant dot of olive oil on each to keep the basil in place.
Fold partially cooked bacon across the top of pepper and secure with a toothpick.
Place on roasting pan with rack.
Broil until bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes depending on thickness of bacon.
Let rest for about two minutes before plating. Great hot or at room temperature.
