We always seem to get asked the same questions about living somewhat off grid in a motor home, to which the answers seem to spark a dozen more questions! So (to give our voices a rest!) here's the answers to our most frequently asked questions...

Stuffed Peppers in Bacon

Stuffed Peppers wrapped in bacon - Camping & BBQ recipesStuffed Peppers wrapped in bacon - Camping & BBQ recipesDo I need to say anything else with a title like that? Oozy cream cheese, sweet and spicy pepper flesh and crisp delicious bacon all together in one incredible little parcel of joy...oh yeah baby! I bet your mouth is watering right now isn't it?

We were introduced to these decadent little delights by a friend, who just HAD to bring us along to his new favourite place; the cafe at Edible Ornamentals chilli farm in Bedfordshire - as featured on Omid Djalilis TV show Hot & Dangerous. They're so friendly and informative there, have a huge selection of chilli plants and products for sale and the food is AMAZING so if you're in the area get on over to see them! Alas, we can't afford to eat there every week so to keep us satisfied until our next visit we figured out how to make them ourselves, but we couldn't keep a secret like this just to ourselves now could we?


Chillies and peppers vary so much in heat and flavour you really should experiment with them, our favourites for making these so far has to be the Sweet Bite peppers pictured (with a little cayenne kick added into the cheese to compensate for the lack of heat), Jalepenos are always a winner (and are the ones used in the original recipe) and this recipe can be adapted to work with halved Romano peppers pretty nicely too.


TIP! For camping and outdoor affairs, we suggest making them in advance to get the fiddly part out of the way. Wrap them in foil ready to go and bring along to enjoy on the BBQ at the beach picnic, or simply indulge by your tent or camper van.



Small peppers (Sweet-bite, Jalepenos, Cherry-Bomb) 

Cream cheese

Streaky bacon

+ optional cayenne chilli powder - for a hotter filling!



1. Cut the tops off of the peppers and set aside, then pull out the seeds and membranes. The membranes around the seeds are the where most of the heat lies so keep that in mind depending on what level of heat you like!

2. Scoop cream cheese into a piping bag (add the optional cayenne powder to the cheese mix if desired) and fill each pepper. Pop their lids back on.

3. Lightly stretch each rasher of bacon with the back of a butter knife, this helps them to wrap easier. Carefully wrap each pepper with a rasher of bacon (go on then - use 2 for big peppers!) and place into a greased oven tin or onto some aluminium foil.

4. Cover and bake in a hot oven for approx. 20 mins until pepper flesh softened, or wrapped in the foil on the BBQ. This is the point you can stop to save them for later - pop into the fridge until you're ready.

5. Either uncover in the oven or pop each pepper onto the grill until the bacon is crisped.

6. Allow to cool slightly before taking a bite, since hot cheese will burn you more than any chilli! Enjoy!

About us:

My name is Sarah and in 2011 my husband Ryan and I decided to buy and re-fit an old motor home - we named it Waki and now live in it full time in the UK!

We live neither on or off-grid, rather somewhere in between, and are not the first and I dare say not the last to choose this way of life... read more>>
