*Recipe* Jumbo Stuffed Banana Peppers

Its been a while since I have shared a delicious recipe! 

A few weekends ago when I was in Buffalo, NY watching my brother play football, GO BULLS;  we went to the guys FAVORITE restaurant and quite possibly the only place they go.... did I mention it is across the street from their house! HA, and happens to have the BEST wings ever!! 

Anyways, the owners of 'The Bon' are SO awesome and bring out samples for everyone to have on Sundays...while we were there, they brought out the most amazing jumbo stuffed banana peppers; stuffed mostly with ricotta cheese! 

Yesterday my husband requested I try out those peppers! We went to Sawyer Garden Center and got the most delicious ingredients, including HUGE banana peppers! Out of the million fresh cheeses they have there, they actually didn't have ricotta, so we used feta & crumbled blue cheese instead, and they were TO DIE FOR!!!! 

I usually cook everything, and then my husband eats it all, not yesterday, we were fighting over the last pepper! :)

YOU NEED: 6 Large Banana Peppers, Feta Cheese Crumbles, Blue Cheese Crumbles(I know a lot of people don't like blue cheese, so use whatever cheese your little heart desires) , Parmesan Cheese, Red Pepper Flakes, Sirache, Salt & Pepper

Step 1: Cut a sliver of the tops off the peppers and de-seed.

 Step 2: Mix all of your ingredients in a bowl and slightly mash up (sorry I really don't measure, I am bad about that) just use your best judgement on how much filling you are going to need for the size of your peppers; and my hubs said, the more filling the better! 
***I will say go light on the sirache... the red pepper flakes and peppers are also hot, so you don't need a lot! 

Step 3: Line up your peppers in a cooking pan and fill.

Step 4: Top with parm cheese and bake on 400 for 10 minutes... I then broiled for 5 more minutes to get that crispy golden brown cheese on top!

 Let cool & ENJOY!
