SFUFFED BELL PEPPERS

 

  • Cooking Time: dependent (about 25 min)
  • Servings: 4-6
  • Preparation Time: 20 min

Ingredients

  • 4-6 large green bell peppers
  • 1 yellow sweet onion
  • 4 garlic cloves (fresh or pre-minced)
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • Italian seasoning grinder
  • olive oil
  • 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 lb ground Italian sausage
  • 1 8oz package of sharp cheddar cheese, 1 8oz package of mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Wash bell peppers thoroughly; cut top off peppers (don't cut straight across, cut in a circle to remove core).
  • Wash the seeds out of the pepper.
  • Mix 1/4 cup of olive oil with Italian seasoning in a small bowl.
  • Place peppers upside down on wire rack inside a roaster pan; poke multiple holes in the bottom of each pepper (this will allow water from the pepper to drain later).
  • Paint the peppers with olive oil mixture and put in oven on 375 degrees
  • Brown ground beef and Italian sausage and set aside in a separate bowl
  • Chop onion, mince garlic, and chop tomatoes and set aside.
  • Remove peppers from oven when they change colors and they are soft
  • Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil.
  • Add meat to the pan and season with Italian seasoning (add a liberal amount of seasoning...trust me).
  • After three or four minutes add the chopped tomatoes.
  • Mix thoroughly.
  • Add meat mixture to bottom of peppers, add cheese, and continue layering until pepper is stuffed.
  • Sprinkle cheddar or mozzarella cheese to the top of peppers.
  • Put peppers back in the oven for approximately 15 minutes.
  • Take them out of the oven and enjoy.
