  1. I rescued my banana peppers before a serious freeze this week. This was a great way to use them up for a pot luck. It was fun letting the peppers ripen: it made it a colorful dish.

    Also, these microwave well.

  2. I stuff my banana peppers with fresh sausage, onions, shredded Parmesan cheese, tiny amount of basil and mix. Salt and pepper to your liking. Cut a small side off a pepper to make the pepper like a boat. Stuff sausage mix into the pepper boat. Roll in bread crumbs.

    These freeze well and make a nice quick dinner or a delightful snack!!!

    I just put up 50 peppers!!!

  3. Going to make a bunch a bunch and freeze them for Thanksgiving appetizers. I’ll wrap some in bacon when I bake them. I have a couple bushel of peppers I’m working on right now. I will also be making jalapeño poppers and freezing.

    • That’s how I do my poppers , but I’ve been putting them in an electric smoker for about an hour and 20 minutes with peach wood , the bacon wrap cooks perfect in that time

  4. My step mom made these for us on Sunday and there were so awesome! I’m doing a low carb diet so these were perfect she usually makes potato salad when having us for dinner which is a weakness of mine so it was nice she made me something low carb so I didn’t fall off the wagon
