These easy to make Everything Bagel Cheese Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers are ready in just minutes and are a healthy addition to lunchboxes. They are also an excellent snack or appetizer.
You may have seen this trend. I have seen various versions of Everything Bagel Cheese Stuffed Peppers all over the internet and on Pinterest. And they looked delicious. So, with back to school season upon us and my constant mission for yummy yet healthy lunchbox ideas, I knew now was the time to give them a try.
I’m glad I did.
When I say that these are easy to make, I mean it! These Everything Bagel Cheese Stuffed Mini Sweet Peppers only need 3 ingredients and just your prep time. You can serve them cold, which makes them perfect for lunches or you can serve them warm for an appetizer or snack.
- Mini Sweet Peppers
- Spreadable cheese
- Everything Bagel Seasoning
If you are looking to get the kids more empowered in the kitchen like I am, this Stuffed Mini Peppers recipe is the perfect recipe to get them involved in. Depending on your child’s age, you may want to prep the mini sweet peppers but cutting them in half, but then have the kids stuff them with the spreadable cheese and sprinkle on the seasoning.
We used Laughing Cow Original Creamy Swiss Spreadable Cheese to stuff our mini sweet peppers, but if you would like to try something different I recommend whipped cream cheese, plain Greek yogurt or another variety of Laughing Cow. If you or the kids like a little bit of spice, their pepper jack variety is also very good.
We love eating these cold, right after preparation. But they are also delicious warmed up. If you would like to serve yours warm, you can bake them at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or out them in the air fryer at 300 degrees for 5 minutes.
Pro Lunchbox Packing Tip: Add the seasoning right before serving these everything bagel stuffed peppers or in the morning if adding to lunchboxes. The Everything Bagel Seasoning loses it’s crunch after sitting overnight in the fridge. Be sure to add something extra to the lunchbox, like fresh fruit and/or Crispy Green Snacks for a well-rounded meal.
