I make these often as they are a favorite - I usually make enough for 2 or 3 meals, freeze those extra stuffed peppers uncooked. Thaw, microwave and enjoy for another meal or two!

My Dad, Grandpa George Bakay, loved to make this for a meal. He never left a recipe, so I came up with this one on my own and think it tastes so much like his.
