Good Morning Everyone!
Happy Monday, hope you all had a great weekend! This weekend I was craving one thing, stuffed peppers! I am usually able to wait till there is a variety of different colors of peppers available, but not this time.
Luckily, green peppers are one of my all time favorite vegetables, so I was perfectly fine with just having them!
This meal is pretty easy to make. You can make as much or as little as you want and even eat the stuffing by itself.
- Burger Meat
- Local Peppers (any color)
- Onions (White or Red Candy Sweets)
- Tomato Sauce
- White Rice
Preheat the oven to 350°
First clean of your peppers and start cutting out the centers and pulling them out (this will pull our most the seeds, if they don’t all come out you cab get them by hand or wash them out with water) Try not to cut the sides of the pepper.
We diced up some red onions and garlic. Then started browning up some ground burger.
Add these all together in the pan.
Next start making the rice (here is where you can make as much or as little as you want) We use white rice.
After the burger me at is done, we drained the meat and put it in a bowl. Mix in the rice and tomato sauce.
It took us a few times to get the exact ratio of what we wanted (again it is all about how much rice to meat and sauce you want, there is no right or wrong way)
We then started stuffing the peppers, we took a spoon and started adding the mixture to inside the peppers.
You can add sauce to the top now if you would like, we decided to wait a little.
Double foil the pan they are in (my mom emphasized the do uble foiling to us the first time she gave us the recipe!)
Bake for *at least* 1 hour! (Maybe 1.5hrs)
We took them out at about 45 minutes and added the sauce and some cheese (cheese was something extra, but not needed) We also baked ours for an 1.5 hours, we checked the peppers at an hour and they weren’t as soft as we would of liked. (It is all about what you like)
Then it is time to eat them! Just be aware they will be hot when you first cut into them!
Enjoy! Stuffed Peppers are a meal that I have grown up with and this recipe is straight from my parents (the farmers)!
