Nothing says summer to our family like stuffed (fresh!) green peppers served with corn on the cob. Mmmmm! I usually have to double or triple the recipe for the size peppers that I use....they are usually HUGE! :) Enjoy!

How To Make stuffed peppers

  • 1
    Cut a slice from the top of each pepper; remove seeds and white membrane.
  • 2
    Precook peppers in boiling salted water for 5 minutes; drain.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, brown onion and hamburger in hot skillet, chopping to break up lumps.
  • 4
    Remove from heat; drain. Add bread crumbs, tomatoes, salt, pepper and mustard.

    Fill pepper cases with mixture. Dot tops with butter, then replace pepper "caps" to top of stuffed pepper.
