Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Slice each pepper in half lengthwise, keeping the stem intact. Remove the ribs and seeds and discard, hollowing out each of the peppers. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper and place in an 8- by 8-inch baking dish.

Whip the goat cheese and ricotta together until light and airy in a mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, about 2 minutes. Stir in the thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary. Fill each pepper halfway with 2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture and level off with a small offset spatula.

Place the breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Pour the butter over the breadcrumbs and toss to combine. Sprinkle each pepper with the buttered breadcrumbs. Bake until golden and bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes.

    I made these for a gameday with a few changes, I used a honey chipotle goat cheese blend and added some shredded white cheddar. The sweetness paired with the smoky spicy-ness was great, as was the flavor that the fresh thyme added - don't skip that ingredient!

    Really great! Made these for a dinner party and they were gobbled up! Everyone wanted the recipe. They didn't fit in an 8x8 pan so I used a rimmed baking sheet. Baked them a couple extra minutes so the topping would be really crunchy. Will definitely make these again.
