Stuffed Red Peppers

For me, the best kind of recipes are those someone else shares with me and by the time I’m done listening to how it was made and how it tasted I am begging for the recipe.  Does that ever happen to you?

Tuesday at work by friend Bob was telling me about some stuffed red peppers he made. He got the recipe from his neighbor.  OMG! They sounded so delicious I decided a stop at the store on the way home because I made them last night!

Stuffed Red Peppers

  • 1 package ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup white rice
  • 1/2 cup to cup of red sauce (your choice)
  • 2 eggs
  • spices as you like
  • grated cheese (optional)

Cut the tops of the peppers and scoop out the insides.  Cut a small hole in the bottom as well.  Rise insides of peppers with water, then turn upside down on a paper towel to drain.

Mix the meat, rice, sauce and spices together .  Place peppers in a glass pan and stuff with meat and rice mixture. (Confession time, I forgot the eggs, but they were still moist).


Pour remaining sauce over the top.

Bake in a 35o degree pre-heated oven for 1 hour.  Add cheese on top and melt before removing the peppers from the oven.

Another confession.   For some reason, probably because I didn’t write it down,I cooked them on 325.  Do Not Do This!  I had to cook them longer to get the rice to cook! Smile  At any rate, they were delicious!  I hope you try them and remember to correctly follow the recipe.  lol
