Stuffed Peppers for Two

Stuffed Peppers for Two

"MY HUSBAND likes stuffed peppers, but my old recipe made too much. I devised this recipe to accommodate just the two of us. It helps to use a small-size casserole so the peppers won't tip over while baking. For color, I serve steamed carrots with the peppers, rounding out the meal perfectly. --Elaine Carpenter Horseshoe Bay, Texas"

  1. Cut tops off peppers and discard; remove seeds. Blanch peppers in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside. In a bowl, combine beef, 1/4 cup of tomato sauce, rice, 2 tablespoons of cheese, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and egg; mix well. Stuff the peppers; place in an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Pour the remaining tomato sauce over peppers. Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 45-60 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and peppers are tender. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; return to the oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I used 1.5 pounds of hamburger and cooked for an hour and a half at 350. All of the hamburger fit into four peppers and I put in more cheese than 2 tablespoons (estimate about 1/4 cup) into the...

My husband and I enjoyed this, but both agreed that it needed something morre. Perhaps more spice. It is easier to cook, top and eat these if you cut the peppers lengthwise and makes 4 cups ra...

BW says best stuffed peppers she has ever had. Made exactly as the recipe specifies, except that I cut the peppers in half lengthwise instead of cutting off the tops. Cutting in half keeps the...

BF loved this recipe - I did as well. The worcestershire sauce gives the meat a kick that I think would be missing otherwise. One thing to note: poke a hole in the bottom of the pepper. I did...

Wonderful! I did not precook the peppers and they turned out fine after one hour in the oven. I also used 1/2 tblsp Montreal Steak Seasoning instead of the salt and pepper and added about a clov...

My husband swore up and down that he didn't like stuffed peppers until I made him try this recipe one night. He loved it and so did I. It was quick and easy to make and cooked up perfectly. I ag...

Yum! This was so good and very easy to make! I added a little bit of garlic and basil but I add that to everything! I did not blanch the peppers I just put them in raw and after and hour they tu...

Fast and easy, and served the two of us quite well, just like the recipe calls for. The flavours were excellent, used extra rice and there and it turned out great. Didn't have cheddar cheese on ...
