Tasty stuffed capsicums with bacon, corn, chives and of course plenty of cheese.

Ingredients

Shortcut bacon

60 g, chopped

Red capsicum

4 medium, (about 200g each)

Corn

1 individual, fresh cob, kernels removed

Light cheddar cheese

cup(s), grated, (40g) grated

Fresh chives

2 tbs, finely chopped, plus extra to serve

Egg(s)

8 medium, lightly beaten

Ground paprika

½ tsp

Watercress

60 g, sprigs

Balsamic vinegar

1 tbs

Olive oil

1 tbs

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat a hooded barbecue over medium heat (see tip). Lightly spray a small non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook bacon, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until browned and crisp. Transfer to a large bowl. Cool.
  2. Cut each capsicum in half lengthways. Remove and discard core and seeds. Place on a tray (see note). Add corn, cheese and chives to bacon and mix well. Divide bacon mixture among capsicum halves.
  3. Pour egg into capsicum halves. Sprinkle with paprika. Turn off burners under barbecue flat plate, leaving grill side on. Place capsicum halves on flat plate and cook, with hood down, for 25–30 minutes or until egg has set. Sprinkle with extra chives and serve with watercress, drizzled with vinegar and oil.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Crusty wholegrain bread. TIP: If you don’t have a hooded barbecue, you can bake capsicums in an oven preheated to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced.
