How To Make stuffed banana peppers

  • 1
    Preheat toaster oven to 350°. Cut peppers length-wise and remove seeds, trying to retain a short stem. Toss with a little olive oil and place open side up on a sprayed pan.
  • 2
    Roast in toaster oven for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, pat inside of peppers dry, and cool.
  • 3
    In the meantime, mix the remainder of the ingredients together in the order listed. Use a fork or mixer to mix.
  • 4
    Raise heat in toaster oven to 375°. Fill peppers with cheese mix. Bake for about 8 minutes, watching for cheese to start to brown.
