Meatloaf Stuffed Bell Peppers Wrapped in Bacon

Time to Prepare

15 minutes

Estimated Cook Time

30 minutes


8 people


  • 1lb. package meatloaf mix
  • 1 medium sweet onion chopped fine
  • 1 large jalapeno chopped fine
  • 1 shallot chopped fine
  • 1 ½ C. shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ C. BBQ sauce (we recommend BBQ Bob’s Original sauce)
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. BBQ Bob’s Alpha Rub
  • ½ C. cool water
  • 4-6 large yellow bell peppers (substitute any color you like)
  • 1 lb. thin bacon (thick cut doesn’t stretch to wrap properly)
  • toothpicks


  1. Mix ground meat with all other ingredients (except bell peppers and bacon) in a large bowl and blend well with hands.
  2. Cut the tops off each bell pepper keeping the stem in-tact and remove seeds.
  3. Stuff meatloaf into each pepper and toothpick the tops back on the peppers. Usually 2-3 toothpicks do the trick for each pepper.
  4. Wrap each pepper with about 4 strips of bacon and place on the grill over indirect heat for approx. 30 minutes at 300°F or until the internal temp reaches 160° and the bacon has rendered. Slice and serve.
