  • 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))
  • 8 slices bacon (,cut in half to make 16 slices (no sugar added))
  • 1 cup mayo (,see notes for homemade recipe)

  1. Heat a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat with 1 tbsp olive oil. Also preheat oven to 400°F
