My husband has made these in a different version for years. We have a lot of friends that like them but don't like the blast of heat they get so he removes the seeds and membranes at their request before stuffing them. This is easily done with a grapefruit spoon even if you cut them in half. He likes to cut them in half so they will lay flat then put a little precooked sausage (or whatever sounds good to you)in them, a thick slice of Cream Havarti* cheese and top with a half slice of lean bacon. Bake in a 400 degree oven until the bacon is done and serve. You will still have some heat but not a lot and a lot of people will able to eat them that would not the other way. If you want them hotter then don't remove all of the seeds and membrane. He never has any leftovers to bring home!
*Havarti cheese melts very well so don't make the slices so big that it melts and runs into the cooking pan. If you crumple some foil and put it in your pan it will hold the peppers so they don't tilt and lose the stuffing. Non-stick foil works great for this dish.
