The first time I ever had roasted capsicums was at a restaurant, I ordered it as an entree and loved it. I spent the next several weeks trying to figure out how to make them at home and this the final product.
Roasted capsicums have since become a favorite in my house. The combination of mince, rice, tomatoes and bacon is amazing and the recipe needs only 3 spices.
I like to serve these with steakhouse style wedges and sour cream topped with chives.
It’s also really important to pick your capsicums wisely, look at the bases and make sure they are big enough to stand up on a baking tray.
I didn’t put amounts for the garlic salt because I believe you need to do this to taste. I love putting a lot in (like 1-2 tablespoons) but others might prefer less.
I used just Woolworths brand tasty cheese but you can use whatever you prefer.
The recipe states 2-3 cups of rice. I usually add all 3 cups because I really love the mix of mince and rice but you could use 2 if you are not a huge rice fan.
