Stuffed peppers and learning something new!

Our green bell and banana peppers are abundant this year!
I made stuffed peppers yesterday with roasted tomatoes-yum! When I looked up a recipe for stuffing without having to cook the meat first , I discovered another tip!
To make the peppers sit up in the pan, trim off part of the bottom. All these years of making peppers, never thought of something so easy

Linda, do you parcook the peppers first? Just curious. I do, and I precook the meat. That is probably why I rarely make stuffed peppers.

I have been looking to streamline the method . I used to parboil peppers, precook the meat and rice so it was such a lengthy process.

Now I do not parboil nor precook the meat. (You still have to do the rice though)-.but that's so easy in the microwave.
You just cover the dish for one hour and uncover another few minutes. Much easier!

Stuffed peppers were a staple of my childhood but I haven't had them in forever! Might have to give them a try again.

Did you stuff the banana peppers, too? I accidentally have a lot of those.

When I make stuffed peppers, I actually cut the peppers in half longways. Then I place each half face down in a glass dish with a little water. I put the dish covered in the microwave for 8-10 minutes, or until the peppers are part way cooked and I can easily get a fork through them. While they are cooking in the microwave, I brown the meat. I almost always have cooked rice in the freezer so I thaw that in the microwave and add it in with the meat. Then I drain the glass dish, put a little tomato sauce in the bottom and lay the pepper halves right side up and stuff them. Since they are already partly cooked and in halves they are easily done in 25-30 minutes at 350.

For your banana peppers

I love this stuffed pepper recipe. It's for jalapenos, but I prefer to use banana peppers.

1 pound ground pork sausage / 8 ounces cream cheese, softened / 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese / 1 pound large fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

Preheat oven to 425 /Cook sausage in a skillet,drain grease /Mix sausage, cream cheese, and Parmesan / Spoon mixture into pepper halves. Bake 20 minutes til lightly browned.

I actually did stuff the banana peppers the same as the bell peppers. They were equally delicious. I have had them stuffed with sausage too-also good!

forkids2-that recipe looks yummy.

Just thought I would share this recipe

It is a fave at our house. We are watching carbs, so rice isn't on our diet. This recipe is very tasty.

I made a large roaster full of stuffed peppers. Like overthemoon, I also cut mine lengthwise. I do not precook anything and I do not add rice.
I use my meatball recipe and just place some in each pepper. If it is a smaller pepper, I add enough meat to make level. This year, my peppers were so large that I actually quartered some of them and shoved the meat in the crevices.

I place them in my roasting pan with just a tiny amount of water. Then I spoon a couple cans of Campbell's tomato soup over the peppers being sure to cover the meat. It may sound gross, but it really is delicious.

I cook them in a 300 degree oven for at least 2 hours. If you don't like your peppers cooked as much, just be sure your meat is cooked.

I like to make these the night before and refrigerate. Any extra grease floats to the top and I remove that the next day before reheating. We always have ours with a baked potato.

You can also freeze the peppers/meat in ziplock freezer bags. Take out what you need for a meal over the winter! Then add your soup before baking.

OK I am feeling guilty

My recipe is: Open the Stouffer's box, cut the film, and microwave. ( Sometimes I sprinkle cheese on top.)
They are good to me and super easy!
