When bell peppers go on sale I buy tons. I use them in my spaghetti sauce, in casseroles and make one of my favorites: stuffed peppers! This is a twist on an old favorite and I especially love using multiple colored peppers for a fun visual effect. Another great part is the serving sizes are perfectly proportioned and the smaller rings work great for my younger kids while he middle slices are hearty enough for my husband.
Simply slice the top and bottom off your bell peppers and remove seeds. Using a sharp knife cut approximately 2 inch rings, you can make them thicker or thinner, depending on your family (just remember cook time will be a bit longer with a thicker slice). Set the rings in a shallow pan with only a few inches of water and cover. Steam those over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes; I perfer my peppers very tender, do what works for you. Remove from heat and set aside.
The filling is very basic but delicious. Throw some onions and garlic in a pan on medium heat. Cook until the onions are becoming see through adn then add apound of ground beef (or turkey) and brown in the pan. You can change it up based on what you or your family likes. Add tomatoes or mushrooms or diced peppers or omit onions if you have a picky eater. It all works in this filling!
Place your bell pepper rings on a baking sheet and carefully spoon filling into the rings. Top with shredded cheese and place in oven on broil for just a few minutes until the cheese gets golden brown. I serve this with rice for a nice hearty and healthy meal!
