Stuffed Peppers

Made some ground turkey and quinoa stuffed peppers this afternoon.  This might be one of my favorite dishes I have ever made on the egg!

    Very nice but the boss would not let use the Pyrex in the Egg. I'd have to go direct on the grate.

    Stuffed peppers are always nice. Yours look delicious.

    Looks great. Did you precook the meat before stuffing the peppers? That's the way I make mine.

    I took a chance and bought some stuffed peppers from Costco last weekend. The meat was not precooked. They were the nastiest things I have ever bought at Costco.

    Again, your peppers look really good.

  • Yes, precooked the meat and cooked indirect at 350 for 45 minutes.

    Is it necessary to have them in the dish?  My thought is they would get soggy. I want to try them in the Egg. Haven't done them in a long time; pre-Egg.

    Making these tomorrow night- we love adding a little spaghetti sauce to the top of these while cooking-

    great looking meal

    I usually put the peppers on a flat thin metal pizza baking plate. That way the thin layer of ketchup I paint on the sides of the peppers has a chance to brown. I also blanch the peppers before stuffing.

    I've never used spaghetti sauce on top, but that sounds good.
    I put a layer of shredded cheese on top and paint the cheese with ketchup. Not a high brow sophisticated dish the way I make them, but they are very tasty.

    Try burying some cheese in the middle of the stuffing, a few of the small mozzarella balls or couple of cubes of pepper jack or something.

    Thanks for the tips. Want to make this but SWMBO would likely kill the idea since it has rice in and rice is points. It would also have to be super lean beef or turkey so would have to find some way to add moisture without adding fat.

  • @500 Looks like the rice in this recipe has been replaced by Quinoa so your wife may like this one

    Thanks. I sprung the idea on her. She said Nah. She don't like stuffed peppers. Pepper stout pullled beef is my next try and turkey breast. She'll approve of the turkey breast but will have reservations about the beef.
