Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.  Wash your sweet peppers and cut each one in half lengthwise, leaving stems intact. Be sure to lay each pepper down to see which way to cut, ensuring they will lay flat on your baking sheet. Remove seeds and membranes. Spread 1 tablespoon of olive oil onto a large baking sheet. Place peppers on the sheet and toss to coat in olive oil. Turn all peppers cut sides up, salt lightly and bake for 6 to 8 minutes to soften.
  • Crumble and thoroughly cook the Hatfield Sweet Italian Ground Sausage. Drain grease and set aside to cool. 
  • In a medium bowl mix together the room temperature cream cheese, garlic powder, parsley, salt, pepper and the shredded cheese. Stir sausage into the mixture and combine well.
  • Spoon the sausage and cheese mixture into the pepper halves. Sprinkle with extra cheese to your taste and bake your sausage stuffed sweet peppers for 5 to 7 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy while warm!

    Made these for impromptu company, brought the cream cheese to room temperature on top of stove ( wrapper on , away from flame ! ) , while I cooked the sausage & followed recipe… Do add the finely cut scallions on top , baked , or as a garnish …tasty ! I served it with deli turkey & baby Swiss on Hawaiian slider rolls ( out of ham & no pineapple ). We watched old SNL funny Jeopardy skits. Great couple of hours & really really great food !
