Then I let the crockpot work its magic, as I casually filed my nails and caught up on glam magazine news.

When the peppers are soft and sweet, it’s time to add a heaping pile of cheese over the tops and sprinkle them with mini pepperoni.

  15. For someone who doesn’t use a crockpot/slow cooker that often yet, how long is “till they’re done”?  Also what temp?

    • Hi Cynthia,

      Crockpot cooking is so easy, but also a little tricky at first because you have to get to know your slow cooker. Some brands tend to be quite a bit warmer than others. That’s why you usually see slow cooker recipes with a range of time.

  16. YUM! These look so good, I think I may add some mushrooms to the mixture just because I like mushrooms on my pizza, but these look perfect, and I love that its a “fun” way to eat some veggies. And added bonus, easy on me to make.

  17. Definitely a healthy option for game day food

  18. Now that’s how to stuff some peppers!

  19. Those little pepperoni are so dang cute!

  20. This looks like the perfect way for me to trick my boys into eating peppers!
