Buonasera,

Good Post and recipes ... Aromatic and lovely fragrances coming from the oven ...

Green and Red Bell Peppers or Green Horn Shaped Italian Peppers, are wonderful stuffed ...

There are so many Family Traditional Italian and Greek Variations, however, I love them all ...

Ground Meat of choice, lamb, beef or pork, with short grain Rice and pinenuts and Zucchini or Tomato or Eggplant & Reggiano Parmesano ...

Greek Long grain rice, dill, lemon zest, oregano, pinenuts, fennel or onion and shrimp ...

Have lovely Sunday,
Ciao, Margi.

Thank you Kadesma for the idea of using cubanelles. I will have to give that a try. I'm really not fond of the bell peppers in that kind of quantity. I enjoy them as an ingredient, chopped finely or julienned, but I really don't like a big piece in my mouth. The cubanelles are thinner fleshed, so they may be just right for me.

I don't think the recipe is your problem. Rather it is Green Peppers; they are yucky, bitter and simply very un-tasty. Green peppers are nothing more than red or other color peppers that are not ripened yet. Just like any other fruit or veggie they do not taste good Green. I use very similar recipe, and until I started using red peppers I did not like it myself. Try to change peppers.

We prefer red or at least yellow peppers; but when we are gifted some green, we usually cut most of them up and freeze for use along with red peppers in things like omelots.
The taste of green peppers seems to be improved by frying them.

It was the recipe alright Charlie. My MIL wasn't a very good cook. I was suspicious, and rightly so.REAL mashed potatoes don't come in a box.

You guys should have seen the look Hubby gave me when he saw them. Talk about the Deer in the headlight look. I saw fear in his eyes. He asked me " What did you do to them THIS time? Gimme a break. I'm trying here! Anyways once I told him what was in it. He was a sport and tried them. Loved it, he ate them all. Mr perfect didn't even get heartburn from it like I did. My chest still feels like a brick is laying on it.

Munky.

I think the green peppers are fine for stuffed peppers, and I can smell the batch that just came out of the oven...

Basically you cut the peppers into quarters and steam them to soften them.
Mix the ground beef,rice, onion, basil, oregano, and egg.
Lay the peppers in a pie plate then top with the beef mixture, then tomato sauce then top the whole thing with mashed potatoes and bake.
I cannot for the life of me find that recipe. I'll have to try and recreate it so I can get it down on paper. I made it last summer but I can't find it. Here is what I remember if you want to be adventurous. I don't remember all the amounts or how long to bake it for.

3 green bell peppers
1 lb ground beef
1 cup rice - cooked
1 onion chopped
1 egg
tomato sauce
mashed potatoes (about 2 cups???)
fresh basil and oregano
salt & pepper

Steam or boil the peppers to soften them then cut them into quarters

Lay them cut-side up in a pie plate ( 9" pie plate?) like bike spokes.

Mix the ground beef, rice, onion, egg, basil, oregano, salt & pepper.

Spoon some sauce over the peppers.

Layer on the beef mixture.

Spoon on more sauce.

Top with the mashed potato ( I used a piping bag to put the mashed potato on top)

Dot the top with some butter.


Bake at 350 ( I don't remember how long it took)

Stuffings For Green Bell Peppers? My neighbor has brought over a huge bag of Green Peppers. Here's the dish. Hubby has never liked my recipe for them. It was the usual ground beef, cooked rice, onions, seasonings, sauce. I thought it was kind of boring to :lol: What kind of fillings do you use? I have plenty of ground pork, chicken, beef, chorizo.Veggies, lemons. Cheddar, mozz, parm, sour cream. What to do? He's paranoid to try them again.:rofl: Thank you. Munky. 5 stars 1 reviews
