Since getting my wood fired oven (more on that soon) I’ve been experimenting with ways to use the heat as the oven gets up to pizza temperature to cook snacks or starters, I saw a photo of some of these on Instagram so decided to give them a go, the picture used a fancy bit of kit from Thuros but as I didn’t have one I improvised with a bit of wood that I soaked in water and drilled some holes in.
It’s now been a regular dish, pretty much every time the oven is fired I make a version of these. If you don’t have a wood fired oven you could easily do them on a BBQ or in a normal oven.
If you are using cream cheese then you can mix the hot sauce with it first before putting into the chilli’s. Depending on the thickness of your bacon and size of your peppers you may need to use more than one slice, or use a rolling pin to roll the bacon out a little. If you are veggie you could use veggie bacon or leave the bacon out all together.
