  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
  2. Lightly mix together the ground beef, egg, bread cubes, onion, tomato, garlic, chili sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Wash the peppers, and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into the peppers with a sharp paring knife, making triangle eyes and noses, and pointy-teeth smiles. Slice off the tops of the peppers, and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the peppers lightly with the beef stuffing, and place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy, about 1 hour.

I left out the chili sauce/tomato and added a can of RoTel tomatoes. Used 1 1/2 cups regular cook oatmeal.

These turned out SO ADORABLE and the meat was tender and juicy! Instead of 1 small tomato, I drained and added a can of roasted tomatoes, 4 TBS of Worcestershire sauce, and only 1 teaspoon of c...

What a fun idea!!! I'm giving this 5 stars because we really enjoyed them and it will be the perfect meal for Halloween (they are so cute - the girls loved them!) but we didn't use the filling c...

Every year we have guests for dinner, then onto trick-or-treating- lots of kids and parents! This is a great festive meal for everyone. A little freshly shredded parm cheese adds something extra...

What a FAB presentation -- my 12 yr old daughter flipped out over this cleaver idea. I substituted rice for the the bread as I always think bread kind of zaps the flavor from meatloaf and other...

These were good...and creative! The bread was a bit soggy - I probably won't add it next time.

These are delicious! I am not a pepper fan, and I loved it! I thought my kids would hate it, but they surprised me and now it is their "all-time favorite meal!"
