Stuffed Bell Peppers

I really didn't know what I was doing. My lovely wife has to work tonight and I have a late meeting to attend so I thought this would be a good time to try my stuffed peppers. It didn't matter if I bombed or not and Susie doesn't like green peppers anyway.

I bought some Johnsonville Brat Italian Sausage and split them open; removing the meat.

2 large green bell peppers
Italian sausage
Spaghetti sauce
1/4 Cup Onion Diced
8.8 Toss in the micro wave Uncle Ben's Rice
Package of Mozzarella cheese, grated
Package of Parmesan cheese, grated

All I could find was Johnsonville Italian Brats six to a package.
I cut them open and removed the sausage. About the only thing that was measured was the onion. The rest was just kind of what looked right or good.

I browned the sausage and onions in a skillet.
Adding the rice which I nuked to the sausage and onions in a bowel I mixed in the parmesan cheese.

I cut the top off the peppers and removed veins and seeds.

With this mixture I stuffed the peppers. I added a layer of the spaghetti sauce to the bottom of my 9 X 9 inch pan and my stuffed peppers. I sprinkled on the mozzarella cheese on the peppers and added more speghetti sauce and added more cheese.

I should have added all of the speghetti sauce but didn't. Next time I will.

I did not know if this was a direct or indirect cook. I did indirect at 350 for 30 minutes.

Here are the ingredients with the spaghetti sauce missing






Ready for the Peppers



Not bad for a first attempt

    I've never use spaghetti sauce, but since we too like red wine that should make for a nice pairing.
  • I was just thinking of stuffed peppers the other day. I may give it a whirl pretty soon. Thanks for info.

  • Measuring makes me crazy! :angry: I like the idea of what I call feel cooking. Put in what you think is right and let it happen :ermm:
