Stuffed peppers

Jane Whittaker


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


  • 1If 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.
  • 2Mix up everything except the tomato sauce.
  • 3Stuff the peppers with the hamburg mixture.
  • 4Put the stuffed peppers in your slow cooker, and pour the tomato sauce over them.
  • 5Cover and cookon low for 6 to 8 hours. My slow cooker always cooks fast, so for me it's 6 hrs.
