Super Easy Stuffed Peppers

I've made stuffed peppers a few times but I've always cooked the meat beforehand. I wanted to try this recipe because the meat actually cooks inside the peppers in the oven. This was pretty good! From allrecipes.com.


* 2 medium green bell peppers
* 1/2 pound ground beef (I used ground turkey)
* 8 oz can tomato sauce, divided (I used spaghetti sauce instead)
* 1/4 cup uncooked instant rice
* 3 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese, divided (I used mozzarella)
* 1 tbsp chopped onion
* 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/4 tsp pepper
* 1 egg, beaten


1. Cut tops off peppers and discard; remove seeds. Blanch peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.
2. In a bowl, combine beef, 1/4 cup of tomato sauce, rice, 2 tablespoons of cheese, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and egg; mix well.
3. Stuff the peppers; place in an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Pour the remaining tomato sauce over peppers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 45-60 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and peppers are tender.
4. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; return to the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
