Chilli Peppers in a blanket

Adrian Izzard's Cambridgeshire chillies are beautiful. And they’re English! And organic! Amazing. Rustle it up after a night out, or make loads to go with roast chicken, roast sweet potatoes and sweetcorn. Not a chilli fan? This'll work with Ramiro peppers.

  • A chilli pepper
  • Enough cream cheese, fresh ewe's cheese or mascarpone to fill it
  • A piece of smoked streaky bacon, long enough to wrap around it

1. Heat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/gas 6.
2. Halve the pepper horizontally, cut through the stem, keeping it in tact. Scoop out seeds and membrane. Fold coriander into the cheese, if using. Spoon cheese in to each half.
3. Wrap each in bacon - enough to go round and cover the cheese. Secure with cocktail sticks or place in a baking dish keeping the cut-end of the bacon secure.
4. Roast for 20-25 mins, until bacon is crisp.
