Mozzarella with Bacon & Roasted Peppers




Recipe taken by Christine Pittman on Cook The Story.


  • 4 strips precooked bacon, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped roasted red pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of black pepper
  • 8 oz part-skim mozzarella cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsp chopped green onion


  1. Put a small pie plate, gratin dish or cast iron skillet into the oven. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. While the oven preheats and the dish warms up, combine the bacon, roasted pepper, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Once the oven has preheated, remove the dish from the oven and add the cheese to it in a single layer. Return the dish to the oven and bake until the cheese has melted into one oozey puddle, about 10 minutes.
  3. Top the melted cheese with the bacon mixture and return it to the oven just until the bacon and peppers are heated through, 4-5 minutes. Top with the green onion and serve.
