Description

With only 1 net carb each, these peppers are great as an appetizer, snack or side dish with any meal. The peppers get sweet and soft when baked. Suitable for Atkins, keto, lchf, low carb, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten-free.

Ingredients

  • 12 whole Mini Bell Peppers, Any Color, Halved
  • 2 ounces, weight Cauliflower, Riced
  • 1 Tablespoon Yellow Onion, Fine Diced
  • 1 whole Green Onion, Thinly Sliced
  • 1 ounce, weight Crimini Mushrooms (baby Portobello), Finely Diced
  • 1 slice Crisp Cooked Bacon, Diced
  • 3 Tablespoons Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Divided
  • 1 ounce, weight Organic Valley Cultured Cream Cheese, Softened
  • ¼ teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 2 dashes Salt
  • 2 dashes Black Pepper
  • ¼ ounces, weight Pork Rinds, Crushed Fine
  • 2 Tablespoons Kraft Grated Parmesan Cheese (the Powdery Kind)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a small cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Cut peppers in half lengthwise, and remove any seeds and membrane. Cut them in a way that if there is a flatter side to the pepper, that will be the “back” that lays down nicely on the baking pan. Line the peppers up on the baking pan and set aside.

Prepare the filling ingredients: rice the cauliflower, chop the yellow and green onions, dice the mushrooms and bacon (or warm bacon crumbles in the microwave for about 15 seconds), grate the cheese.

Use a small microwaveable mixing bowl to assemble the filling. Cut the cream cheese into cubes, and microwave for about 15 seconds—just enough to soften it, but not melt it. Add half of the grated cheese (reserve other half for topping), vegetables, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix everything well.

Put about 1 teaspoon full of filling into the cavity of each pepper. Pat down a bit. Sprinkle remaining cheese lightly over the filled peppers.

In a small bowl, mix crushed pork rinds and Parmesan cheese together. Sprinkle a pinch of mixture on top of each pepper.

Bake 25 minutes. Peppers will be soft. Tops should be dry, but may not brown. If you want them a little more brown, turn the broiler on for a couple of minutes.

Serve warm.

Left overs may be frozen. Rewarm in oven or toaster oven to dry out the topping for best results. Or just eat them cold as a snack.
