Step 1

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, and bacon bits. Firmly press a heaping teaspoonful of cheese mixture into each pepper half. Cover and chill 1 hour.

Place flour, eggs, and bread crumbs in 3 separate shallow dishes.
Dip stuffed pepper halves into flour, then eggs, then bread crumbs, coating thoroughly with each.

Fill a large saucepan or soup pot with 2 inches of oil and heat over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.

Carefully fry a few peppers at a time, 1 to 3 minutes, or until golden.
Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.
