Method

Preheat the oven to 350°F. 

Place bell pepper halves on a baking sheet; trim a sliver off the bottom of any pepper halves that do not sit level. 

Sprinkle peppers with 1/4 teaspoon salt, cover the pan with foil and bake until peppers just begin to soften, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, fry bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes. 

Add onion and cook until golden, about 5 minutes more. 

Stir in rice and spinach (no need to thaw first) and cook until hot and any excess liquid from the spinach has evaporated, 5 to 6 minutes. 

Transfer to a bowl and stir in Gouda, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Spoon mixture into bell pepper halves, putting about 1/2 cup into each. 

Sprinkle tops with bread crumbs and bake, uncovered, until peppers are soft and bread crumbs brown, about 25 minutes.
