One day after work, Troy and I were trying to figure out what to have for dinner. Nothing was sounding good and then I thought about it, I wanted to do something with the peppers in our garden. We had grown some awesome green bell peppers and had been eating some through the summer chopped up in a salad.

I knew that there was only about 5 or so left on the plant and I wanted to do something unique with them that was out of the ordinary so we could really enjoy them. That is what my husband Troy came up with the fabulous idea of twice baked potato stuffed peppers. I loved the idea!

We spent time in the kitchen cooking together while our little one took an afternoon nap and it was awesome. The peppers turned out wonderfully and tasted great. I would definitely make these again, especially for a party.
