I’ve been going a little nuts with my “sweets” recipes lately, so I thought I would change it up this week by sharing a yummy SAVORY dish.
This meal, like many of my dishes, was born out of the need to use up some leftover ingredients in my fridge and freezer. I had a batch of my Vegan Cheese Dip in the fridge along with some ground beef, etc… Cheeseburger Peppers were born!
The cheesy bacon flavor is amazing and comforting without being overly heavy or greasy!
I bet the kiddos will go crazy for this one! The filling would also go great with a Gluten-Free bun as a cheesburger-y sloppy joe or your could even eat this over greens as salad!
