This is my version of an old classic. My late hubs couldn't eat peppers and I hadn't made them in years. Now I am making these a lot they are a tried and true at our house.
Don't use too lean a hamburg here, you want the fat for flavor.

How to Make Stuffed peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. If your peppers are tippy, shave some off the bottom to get them to stand level. Cut off the top, I save the tops for other uses, usually put in a salad for the same meal.
  2. Mix up everything except the tomato sauce.
  3. Stuff the peppers with the hamburg mixture.
  4. Put the stuffed peppers in your slow cooker, and pour the tomato sauce over them.
  5. Cover and cookon low for 6 to 8 hours. My slow cooker always cooks fast, so for me it's 6 hrs.
