Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 16 minutes
Total Time 36 minutes
Course Appetizer


  • 12-16 Sweet Peppers (halved lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed)
  • 8 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup Freshly grated medium sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp Silver Spring Cream Style Horseradish
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic powder
  • Kosher Salt and ground black pepper (to taste)
  • Arugula


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Arrange pepper halves in a single layer, cut side up, on a baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes. When you remove the peppers, increase the oven temperature to 400ºF.
  • While the peppers are cooking, combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, green onions, horseradish, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl.
  • Divide the filling evenly amongst the peppers, being careful not to mound too much filling into them or they will melt and get messy.
  • Bake the stuffed peppers another 8 minutes, then turn on the broiler to get the tops a little crispy.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature on a bed of arugula if desired.
