  • 5 banana pepper
  • 1 ounce goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onion chopped
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1/4 pork sausage minced
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 tsp basil leaves dried


  • To start with, preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 
  • While the oven heats, take a bowl and add sausage, mozzarella, goat cheese, basil leaves, green onion, and black pepper. Mix it well.
  • Now to prepare your peppers, cut them from the stem and scoop out all the seeds. You can also make a long slit along the length of the pepper for easy filling and cleaning.
  • Take your pork mix and stuff the pepper to the end. Place them on a baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes. Your stuffed banana peppers are ready, you can serve them hot!


Alternate: If you want a vegetarian version of these peppers, you can alternately use a potato and peanut-based filling. Indians, usually, prepare 'bharwan mirchi' where they use this filling with a lot of Indian masalas (spices) that add to its taste.
You can also try modifying the recipe with your ideas and as per your taste specifications.
