Stuffed Peppers and meatloaf have always been a favorite of my kiddos . When I make these I think of when they were little and how they loved them. Hope you enjoy cooking them as much as I do.

In a large bowl crumble ground chuck and ground round ,salt and pepper together . Mix in eggs and half of bottle of ketchup ,onion and green pepper .Mix this until it is blended , add in a little of both crackers till it begins to hold together , yet still sticky. You can add more crackers if needed or more ketchup.

Mix rest of ketchup with brown sugar for topping at the end of cooking , about the last 5 minutes or so.

Stuff peppers and top with partially cooked bacon . Cover with foil for about 30 minutes, uncover and continue to cook till done. Take out and put ketchup mixture on top of each pepper and cook a few more minutes. You will need to test to see if done..
