Stuffed peppers have always been a family favorite in our house. You can use any color of pepper that is to your preference (Like I did).

Some people like to par-boil the peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes before stuffing them but I like a little crunch to my peppers , so I have not done that process in my recipe.

To this meatloaf mixture you can add sliced mushrooms also but my daughter doesn't like them so I left them out.

You can cook these in the crockpot also on low for 8 hrs.

These can also be prepped ahead of time and frozen in zip lock bags for a quick meal , just pop them frozen in the oven or slow cooker and let them cook.

How to Make Stuffed Green , red or Yellow Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the oven to 375°
  2. Note : sometimes I will use a packaged rice instead of making my own.
  3. Wash and cut tops off of the peppers and remove the core with the seeds and the veins from the insides of the peppers.
  4. Place peppers cut side up into a casserole dish.
  5. Place the hamburger in a large bowl ; add all the seasonings , eggs , tomatoes (with the juice), rice and the Worcestershire sauce and mix until all is combined.
  6. Stuff each of the peppers with the hamburger mixture.
  7. Place the peppers in the 375° oven and bake uncovered for 1-1/2 hrs.
  8. Note : the last 10 minutes of cooking time you can add shredded cheese on the tops of each pepper (if desired) and return to the oven and melt the cheese.
  9. Note : Cut the extra pepper from the ends that you cut off of the tops and freeze for use in another dish...waste not ..want not!!
