These stuffed banana peppers are almost a meal in themselves!
- large banana peppers
- boiled or baked meat (chicken, steak, etc.)
- grated cheese
- bacon strips
- cup of flour
- 1 egg
- Salt and pepper
- Slice peppers lengthwise on one side (do not cut in two). Clean/seed. Stuff with boiled or baked chicken (or sliced steak, roast), sprinkle with grated cheese to taste, salt and pepper.
- Close pepper and wrap with bacon strip, fasten with toothpick. Dip in egg and batter with flour, salt and pepper. Place peppers in hot olive oil (or your favorite oil) and fry until golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain any extra oil.
- Meat can be prepared at anytime, good for leftovers too. Serve either warm or cool.
