stuffed bell peppers


so, remember yesterdays post?
well, the recipe calls for only a half pound of both the ground pork & beef.
& if you're like me, you probably bought a pound of each!
what to do with the rest of the meat?
make more meatloaf!
this time, however, we stuffed it into bell peppers &
topped it with cheese & green onions.

stuffed bell peppers

1 recipe of mega meatloaf
{minus the bbq sauce & bacon on top}
3 bell peppers, cut in half lengthwise
1 C sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 C green onions, thinly sliced

1. preheat oven to 400 f.

2. lay bell peppers, cut side up, on a baking sheet. fill with 1/6th of the meatloaf mixture, shaped into a ball. press firmly into pepper. repeat with the rest of the meatloaf & bell peppers.

3. bake for 45 minutes. top with cheese & green onions & bake an additional 5 minutes, to melt the cheese.

4. serve with salsa or barbecue sauce on the side.

just another way to enjoy meatloaf!

  2. Oh these make my belly rumble. I made stuffed peppers in 8th grade home ec class and they were, um, not very tasty to say the least, so I'm so glad to see such an appetizing version that I know my husband and I would love! One more Delightfully Dowling recipe to add to my files. Thanks girl.

  3. Your Stuffed Bell Peppers look really good. I have never put cheese on top of mine before but that is a good idea that I will try. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and please come back!
