Stuffed Peppers


  • green peppers
  • Parmesan cheese


  • 1/2 lb. hamburger, browned
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • salt, as desired
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • Advertisement

  • 1 cup cooked rice


Cut tops from peppers; clean out seeds and membrane as desired. Drop into boiling water and boil for 2-5 minutes. Peppers from store will require 5 minutes, but fresh from garden only 2-3 minutes. Stuff with stuffing ingredients that have been well mixed. Sprinkle stuffed peppers with shredded Parmesan cheese and bake at 350 degrees F until cheese melts.

Cut top from the peppers; remove carefully all the seeds and tongue. Cut then slices from the bottoms so the peppers will stand. Melt the butter, add the flour and seasoning, then the milk; add the meat and fill the peppers with the mixture. Cover with crumbs made by stirring 2/3 cup cracker crumbs into 2/3 Tbsp. of melted butter. Place the peppers in a baking pan and cover the bottom with boiling water.

Stuffed Peppers- Different recipe?

Does anyone have a recipe for stuffed peppers where you actually cook the meat inside of he peppers instead of browning it first? I remember eating some that were almost like meatloaf inside a pepper, and i am pretty sure there was rice in the mixture...

I used to love these, but almost all the recipes i have found online have been with pre browned meat. (10/12/2006)

Stuffed Peppers

I also have had stuffed peppers made with raw hamburger meat at a friend's house years ago, and loved them. The only recipes I've found all started with browned meat too, and I would love to have a recipe starting with raw meat also if anyone has one. Thanks! (08/13/2008)
