Sausage and Rice Stuffed Peppers
Okay these peppers were awesome! Hats off to the poster of this recipe, because they have a winner! My whole family loved them and agreed to the 5 stars. They were very easy to make, but give yourself time to prep and cook.
Some minor modifications to the recipe I made:
-I used orange peppers; they are sweet and complement the flavors of sweet sausage well
-I did not boil the peppers before hand, but after halving them and cleaning out the seeds, I microwaved all halves 4 minutes to dry and soften them.
-6 cups of cooked rice is a lot, you only need 3 cups of cooked rice for the 6 peppers (use Carolina rice and if you need more servings make more rice)
-I made the sausage mixture as is, but did not add the water, cutting the cooking time by 30 minutes
-When the rice and sausage mixture are done cooking, combine them and stuff those peppers!
-Put a shallow layer of water on the bottom of the pan before cooking as it will steam soften the peppers and cook at 350 for 55 minutes on the top rack.
