Watch video tips and tricks
ground Italian sausage
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
grated Romano cheese
Italian-style dry bread crumbs
Hungarian hot peppers, cored and seeded
An EXCELLENT choice !!! Everyone's lips were smacking . As for the filling falling out , put less inside and the filling will not fall out . I used a pastry bag to load the mixture in them . Worked out great .
i did not like thesauge in this , it didnt taste good with the cream cheese , i made them with just the cream cheese and the rest ingrediance
This stuffing is excellent in more than just peppers. It is absolutely delicious in small zucchini once you scoop out the seeds in the middle, like little boats!
This is a keeper and I'm giving it 5 stars. If I had been able to use Hungarian peppers I probably would rate it even higher. I had to use jalapeno peppers because I could not find Hungarian peppers - I called around to five major supermarkets in New York and New Jersey and they don't carry them. Hungarian peppers are the mildest form of peppers in the "hot pepper" family. Hence, if you used them you could probably eat a lot more - by using the jalapenos - this is a very spicy appetizer and not one I would use to serve before a dinner party (I want my guests to be able to taste my food!) The internet suggests using Anaheim peppers for a substitution, but again, they don't sell them in my area. The filling is delicious - if you are using jalapenos - I would suggest using sweet sausage rather than hot to cut down on the heat. If you like HOT go for the jalapenos and hot sausage. Thank you submitter - this is a great appetizer for sport events and drinking beer!!!!!
THIS IS THE MOST DELICIOUS STUFFED PEPPER RECIPE I HAVE EVER TRIED! I use one sausage link squeezed out of the casing and substitute garlic powder for the garlic salt. Between the sausage & cheese, it would likely be WAY too salty. This is the only recipe I use now. They always get rave reviews and they are often requested!
I love this recipe!! It was quick and easy to make. I made a batch of 25 peppers, and my husband ate 20 of them!!!! Thanks Russ!
My husband and I loved this recipe! Next time I think I'd stuff them like little canoes instead of through the ends..... the goodies melted out!
Husband and I are complete opposites when it comes to peppers and spicy food: I'm a complete wimp; he can take anything! As I was making these just for him, I added a very generous slosh of hot sauce. Also, I used Parmesan instead of Romano (I didn't want to buy a whole block just for this recipe). I would definitely make this again. Thanks, Russ! (PS, I needed 8oz of B. Evan's Italian sausage to stuff the 6 peppers. There's no way 1/3c would have been enough)
