Halloween Stuffed Peppers

Jane Wilcox


I love entertaining and have been planning a dinner party for Halloween. After much searching, I did a trial run prior to the party. I served these over a bed of shredded cheesy potatoes, but am changing it to crunchy shoestring potatoes and onion rings. I think this will achieve the "hay" look I'm trying to capture.
