The Prep Work

Before we jump into the recipe, let’s make sure we’re all set. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and gather your ingredients. You’ll need some garlic, onions, bell peppers, and a delicious filling that we’ll whip up together.

Prep the Peppers

Start by washing and cutting the tops off six bell peppers. Carefully remove the ribs and seeds from the inside, making sure to create a nice hollow space for the filling. Keep the tops intact and set them aside.

Whip up the Filling

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add two tablespoons of olive oil and sauté your diced onions until they become caramelized and fragrant. This will take about 8 to 10 minutes. Feel free to add in some raisins and slivered almonds for a touch of sweetness and extra texture.

Now it’s time to add your choice of meat. Ground beef works great, but you can also use ground turkey or lamb for a different flavor profile. Brown the meat, breaking it up into small pieces and mixing it with the onions and garlic.

Once everything is nicely browned, add in some diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and salt. Stir it all together and let it simmer for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld. Finally, fold in some cooked rice (about 1 1/2 cups) and a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese for that ooey-gooey goodness.

Let’s Get Stuffing!

Now that our filling is ready, it’s time to stuff those peppers! Grab your trivet and start spooning the filling into each pepper, filling them all the way to the top. Don’t be afraid to be generous!

Top the stuffed peppers with more mozzarella cheese and, if you’re feeling adventurous, sprinkle some toasted breadcrumbs with Parmesan and herbs for added crunch.

Bake and Enjoy!

Pop the peppers in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until the peppers are tender and the cheese is melty and golden brown. Once they’re done, sprinkle some fresh parsley on top for a burst of color and flavor.

Serve these delicious stuffed peppers hot and watch as your family devours them with delight. The combination of flavors, the hearty filling, and the cheesy goodness will make this dish a new family favorite.

So go ahead, give this recipe a try and prepare to be amazed by the flavors that come out of this simple one-pan dish. Your taste buds will thank you!
