Sherry's Mom's Stuffed Bell Peppers

Sherry Blizzard


Mom always made our meals special. This is a dish that sticks out in my childhood memory. My mom was a widow with 2 babies and one on the way when she was 24. Needless to say, she lived on a budget. Her stuffed bell peppers were fabulous. I didn't know the main ingredient was bologna-a cheap, but flavorful meat.

She "personalized" dinner-an artichoke on each plate, or maybe Brussels sprouts divided up. And stuffed bell peppers were cool! Everyone had their own. We never went hungry and it was always delish!

Thanks Mom (Billie Blair, aka Witch1-2-3) for the great foodie memories!

2Cut off the tops of the green bell pepper and remove the seeds and veins. Save the top to cover you pepper back up after it is stuffed. NOTE: You might need to trim off the bottom if the pepper will not sit upright.

3Mix together the bologna, onion, eggs, pepper, cooked rice, catsup and parsley. DO NOT ADD SALT! Bologna is salty enough and you don't want to add more.
