Quick Food Recipes - Peppers Stuffed

Stuffed Peppers

Here is an article which is unusual for me but I thought it was something which will be useful information for many people because I know there are a lot of young people out there or people just uneducated in good health who don't know many ideas for cooking recipes.

My housemates are often lazy when it comes to food, eating chip-shop chips, take aways and snacks is a regular thing when it comes to dinner time. Today I decided on cooking something a little more healthier than I usually do, don't get me wrong I don't buy fast food because I think it's a waste of money but I do eat unhealthy sometimes.

Whilst I was living with 2 Italian housemates during university I picked up quite a few recipe ideas, so everything I write is first hand knowledge with my own twist.

Stuffed Pepper is a popular hub topic but I decided I would give the every day person the advice on how to make your own variations rather than a specific recipe, this way you can make do with whatever you have available, or as my ex housemates said 'ready, steady, cook!'.

The above photo shows stuffed peppers that have been cooking in a frying pan, personally I would not cook them this way, firstly because it is unhealthier and secondly because its quicker in the oven, some people even boil the peppers in water first.

Begin by slicing the top of the pepper like in the photograph above and then remove any of the seeds and chewy bits from inside.

Get any ingredients that you think would taste nice with peppers and lay them out alongside your cooking space. Remember to dice anything such as onions, ham, egg or cheese first.

You may want to include any of these ingredients I suggest below because they are quick to prepare.

Eggs (can be boiled whilst your main meal is cooking, for example Steak), Rice(same as the latter), CousCous(once again, quick to prepare) Egg Mayo Sandwich filler, Onions, Red Onions, Baked Beans, Bacon, Ham, Coleslaw, Beansprouts, Cucumber, Tomato, Pepper, Soya Sauce, Ground Beef, Sweetcorn, Mashed Potato, Pickle, Chutney and Mushrooms.

These are just a few examples of things you can use in your variation!

Remember to grate the cheese and sprinkle it over the top of your stuffed pepper, this will act as a great lid to secure your ingredients inside.

Set the oven to 200*C, and let it preheat for 5 minutes, you are now ready to place your peppers on the shelf.

Allow to cook for 10-15 minutes until the top edges have started to soften, your finished peppers should look like the photo above! That is an exact replica of what mien appear like and is ideal accompaniment for jacket potatoes - Enjoy!

I often prepare stuffed peppers; they're quick, easy and healthy. And they can be made to suit almost anyone's taste, as you so rightly point out.
