Stuffed Peppers

We love stuffed peppers. Always have. In fact, this was the very first meal I ever made as a new wife. Steve was a great sport and ate them, ever though I forgot to cover them, and they were still hard and crunchy. : ) I know there are many different ways to cook stuffed peppers, but because I have a thing about raw meat...ugh...I like to brown mine first. : )

Stuffed Peppers
  1. Bell Peppers
  2. 1 pound ground beef or turkey, browned with garlic salt and drained
  3. 2 cups of rice, cooked (I use Jasmine Rice.)
  4. Tomato Sauce
  5. Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  1. Slice top off of peppers. Rinse and clean out well.
  2. Mix browned meat and rice together.
  3. Stuff peppers with meat mixture.
  4. Pour sauce over, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
  5. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese. Bake until melted.
  6. Serve with mashed potatoes and applesauce.
These can be made up early in the day and refrigerated until ready to bake. : )


  1. We love stuffed peppers over here. I really think these will go on the menu for next week, we're overdue!

  3. These look so good. Love the different peppers you used and it would be so healthy with turkey.

  4. My mom use to make these a lot....I never have. But yours look delish so I might just try this recipe.

  5. One of our favorite meals is stuffed peppers. Love your recipe. The good thing about stuffed peppers is you can mix up the recipe all sorts of ways.

  6. You and I cook /bake them the same way. I loveeeee Stuffed Peppers. Smiles

  7. These look yummy! I've actually never had stuffed peppers before! But we've got some growing in the garden so maybe I'll have to give these a try!

  8. Those looks so beautiful and bright!! (and healthy!)

  9. I LOVE stuff peppers, but my family...not so much :/ Enjoy some for me, will you?!

  10. Yummy! I love stuffed peppers too, but have never made them myself. I'll have to try your tasty recipe sometime soon.

    Thanks for sharing, Billie Jo!

  11. I made some the other day in the slow cooker. My husband can't handle tomato sauce too often, so I used the red mild enchilada sauce and it gave it a lot of flavor. I also used uncooked lean ground beef, mixed it with regular rice, and leftover pieces of the bell peppers.

    I've never seen Jasmine rice at the grocery store. Does it taste different?

  12. I adore stuffed peppers.. my all time favorite meal growing up. My mom sometimes still makes them for me on my birthday! I know Anna will love these... gonna make them this week! Thanks for sharing friend! xo


Thanks so much for saying hello!
