Oven-Roasted Cheese-Stuffed Bacon-Wrapped Peppers Recipe

I got the idea for this recipe here: Cheese Stuffed, Bacon Wrapped Banana Peppers But, since I don't have a smoker or barbecue, I adapted it.

4 large Banana Peppers (mine were sweet peppers, but you could use hot peppers if you like)
Bacon - enough to wrap peppers completely (I did NOT have enough, so my peppers are not covered completely as you can see in the pictures)
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 block cream cheese

Wash peppers. Cut off top and de-seed the peppers, using thin knife so as not to cut the sides. 
Mix together the cheeses. Use a small spoon with a long handle to stuff the cheese mixture into the peppers. 
Starting at the top opening of the pepper, wrap bacon around the length of the pepper. Use skewers to hold bacon in place. Place peppers on grill.
Set oven at 400F (do not preheat) and place grill on middle oven rack. Cook for 30 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and peppers are tender.
