Stuffed Peppers With Campbell's Tomato Soup! Mmm! Mmm! Good!

Updated on March 3, 2011

The Best Stuffed Peppers Recipe!

You don't even need to like bell peppers to love this recipe! Just take the filling out of the pepper and hand the pepper to someone else, and you will enjoy this ground beef recipe more than you think! This is the only recipe I have ever used, and my husband taught me how to make it over 35 years ago. My kids love it! Yours will, too! Served with mashed potatoes, it is a special meal and once you try it, I believe that it will become one of your favorites.

Campbell's Tomato Soup becomes the gravy for the mashed potatoes. What could be easier?

  • 4 to 6 green bell peppers
  • 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 handsful of uncooked, long grain white rice
  • 2 pieces of sourdough bread, moistened with milk and torn into pieces
  • 2 or 3 squirts of ketchup
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 family sized can of Campbell's Tomato soup
  • 1 1/2 cans of water

Put the ground beef into the mixing bowl. Add and mix together the other ingredients, except for the soup and the water. Combine the soup and water with a teaspoon of salt, in a large stockpot that you will be placing into the oven with a lid on it. Wash the peppers and remove the tops. Clean out the insides, removing the seeds and the ribs. I take some of the ground meat mix, shape into a meatball and stuff each pepper as full as I can get them. I place them, side by side, into the stockpot and if there is any leftover meat, I form it into meatballs and drop them into the pot, too. Cover the pot with a lid and place it into a 350 degree oven for two to three hours. Halfway through, I make sure that I spoon some of the soup over the peppers. At this point, it doesn't matter if the peppers fall on their sides. The meat is cooked enough, so that the meat is fairly solid and will not fall out.

These take awhile to cook because the rice is put in uncooked. Have tried it with cooked rice, but I like it better this way. Plus, the peppers get so tender, they fall apart on your plate.

Cook up some mashed potatoes and serve with the soup as a gravy, over the potatoes and peppers.

I always cover the handles of the pot with foil.

Pretty Sure That This Recipe Can Be Used For Cabbage Rolls!

Even though I love cabbage, my kids don't. I am sure that this recipe would be good with cabbage, so if you prefer, use it for that. It will be just as good!

The ingredients can be increased or decreased, depending on how many you need to feed. I suggest that you make enough for leftovers. These are even better the next day!

    Dear Fay,

    I just made these again a few weeks ago, after not having them since last winter. My husband taught me a lot of things(blush and giggle!). The two recipes he taught me how to make are two that I still use today. This is one of them! Hope you like it!
