Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Peppers

July 12, 2018 | Author: Ashley McCrary

Want an appetizer that will be a real crowd please? These Bacon Wrapped Sausage Stuffed Peppers are what dreams are made of… didn’t you hear the first part of the name? BACON! It will make any dish go from boring to majestic. The best part is the sausage stuffing that is mixed with my famous Mac’s Awesome Sauce that gives the peppers a creamy and almost cheesy texture. This dish is Whole30, Paleo and Keto compliant along with being gluten and dairy free.

These are Whole30, Keto and Paleo compliant and are sure to be the life of the party. This may sound weird, but me and my husband thinks that they taste identical to pizza. You won’t be able to just eat one, so just fair warning, you may want to make 2 batches just to be safe.

Before stuffing the pepper, I like to overcook my sausage so it is a bit crunchy. Once combined with the Mac’s Awesome Sauce, stuff in the pepper, and wrap with the bacon. When the bacon begins to cook, the grease from the bacon will drip into the sausage mixture and give it a totally different flavor. Y’all, my mouth is watering just typing this. These peppers are seriously so yummy.

At my house we like to do appetizers for dinner every now and then and the other night I made these peppers along with a veggie and fruit tray and it was the perfect meal. Clean up was easy and it was fun changing up dinner. My little 4 year old thought it was so cool eating appetizers for dinner.

If you are looking for the perfect appetizer for your next party, be sure to give these tasty peppers a try.

Scale
  • 1 lb sausage
  • 1 clove garlic (,pressed)
  • 1/2 vidalia onions (finely diced)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 mini multi color peppers (,(cutting the 8 peppers in half will make 16 total peppers to stuff))

👇🏼My 2 favorite healthy swaps for oil when baking, applesauce and Greek yogurt. Both options will save you a ton of calories and fat and give you the same results as oil. 

These swaps are for baked goods such as cakes, cupcakes, sweet breads, and muffins. 

🍎APPLESAUCE SWAP: When substituting applesauce for oil in baked goods, the ratio is 1:1. 

Example: If the recipe calls for 1/4 cup of oil, use 1/4 cup of applesauce or 1/2 cup oil use 1/2 cup applesauce. It’s a equal swap. 

🍎For every 1/2 cup of oil replaced with applesauce, you will save over 900 calories and 110 grams of fat. It will also make your cakes and baked goods super moist. 

✨GREEK YOGURT SWAP: For everyone 1 cup of oil sub 3/4 cup Greek or plain yogurt. 

Example: If you are using 1/2 cup oil, use 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. For 1/2 cup of oil there is over 900 calories. For 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt there is only 38 calories. 

Greek yogurt adds more protein and cuts fat by 100%
