Banana Peppers Stuffed w/ Sausage and Cheese

Jewel Hall


I have been looking for a good stuffed Banana Pepper Recipe. A friend had given us some big, beautiful Banana Peppers so I dug for a recipe. The one I decided on They turned out great so I am posting the recipe here. Don't know if I can get a photo but my sister and I loved them with a tossed salad and garlic toast and tea. I'm actually eating one now with a Ritz cracker, very tasty.

  • 2Brown and drain sausages and place in large mixing bowl. (Have cheeses grated and ready to use ahead of time). Place cheeses, grated onion and garlic along with all ingredients except green enchilada sauce and 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese into bowl with sausages and cream cheese.
  • 3Mix all ingredients well. Stuff by teaspoon full into bananna peppers That have been split down the side and seeds and membranes removed.
  • 4After stuffing is completed, sprinkle enchileda sauce over pepper and grated mozzarella cheese over top.
  • 5Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees 35 minutes or until peppers are tender and begin to turn brown. Lift from cookie sheet and enjoy.
    ***** You can wash and dry peppers to room temperature; Cut into 1/2's and freeze in gallon freezer bag. Be sure to remove as much air as possible. You may have to use a drinking straw to suck out air. The less aiir in bag, the less likely ice will form in bag. Take out as many halves as you need later, stuff while frozen and bake as directed.
