Wow your guests with a tasty twist on stuffed peppers!

When I have free time on the weekends, I just love to spend it cooking.

I don't have much time on weeknights, and I end up eating a lot of easy-breezy meals, like this tasty one-pot pasta. While this is one of my favorite meals to eat, it just doesn't really scratch the cooking itch.

When I can, I love to test out recipes that take just a little bit longer, especially if I'm also entertaining on the weekend. I pump up my cooking music and get cracking; after all, the fun of trying out a tasty new appetizer recipe is well worth the extra effort!

Next on my to-do list? I've been dying to try out this delicious recipe for stuffed peppers. But these aren't just ordinary stuffed peppers, they have a seriously tasty twist that will put pep in the step of any dinner party.

Each pepper is sliced open, filled with a mini sausage, and wrapped in bacon!

If that sounds as sinfully delicious to you as it does to us, make sure to print out the recipe below.
