Mix cream cheese, cheddar, garlic and salt in medium bowl.
Fill each pepper half with cream cheese mixture.
To speed the filling process up, place cream cheese mixture in either a pastry bag using a tip with a large opening or in a zip lock sandwich bag with the bottom corner snipped open to allow the filling to be piped through the opening.
Cut bacon strips into thirds.
Take one piece of bacon and wrap it around each filled pepper half, making sure the bacon ends are underneath the pepper.
Place bacon-wrapped pepper halves on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake in 400°F for about 30-40 minutes, or until bacon is cooked to your liking.
