Ways with Peppers: Making Stuffed Peppers

Updated on July 27, 2019

Stuffed peppers are always a delicious and rather easy meal to make. Green peppers are usually my go to when I make stuffed peppers, but if you prefer red, yellow, or orange those are fine as well. You can also switch out the ground beef for ground turkey to create a healthier meal. For the starch side I often chose to cook a nice sized pot of rice to go along with it, but feel free to have any side you'd like.

If you have a large family you can easily double these ingredients. The following ingredients is to make three large peppers which is, in my opinion, a good amount for one person each at dinner time with a scoop of rice.

Ingredients included:

3 large green peppers

1/2 pound ground beef

1 cup dry bread crumbs

1 tablespoon chopped onions

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

1 bag of cheddar cheese (optional)

First, heat your oven to 350 degrees. While your oven is preheating you can begin preparing the green peppers. Cut a whole into each pepper around the stem end to remove the top. Once that is removed clean out all the seeds and the membranes. Wash the peppers inside and out nice and good. Then boil a pot of water and add the peppers. Cook the peppers in the boiling water for five minutes completely submerged then remove and drain.

Set those peppers aside in a deep pan and start working on working on the meat mixture. Mix the meat, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, onions, and tomato sauce together in a mixing bowl then stuff the peppers. I like to stuff the peppers in layers of meat then cheese then meat then topped off with cheese. It makes a beautifully cheesy dish once finished.

Cover your peppers with foil and bake it in the oven for 45 minutes. Once the 45 minutes is up uncover the peppers and let them bake for another 15 minutes longer. This can serve three people or you can cut it in half and serve up to six with extra rice.

You can also cook these out on the grill by wrapping each one in foil securely with heavy aluminium foil. Grill 3 to 4 inches from the hot coals for about 30 to 40 minutes. Make sure you turn the peppers at least once. Then serve up and enjoy a tasty dinner.
