Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook red bell peppers in the boiling water until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Drain and rinse peppers with cold water.
  3. Stir eggs, 3 cups of spaghetti sauce, instant rice, onion, salt, Worcestershire sauce, and black pepper together in a bowl. Crumble ground beef into the mixture and stir until ground beef is thoroughly combined with sauce and rice mixture.
  4. Stand peppers in a large baking dish and fill each pepper with beef mixture. Pour 2 cups spaghetti sauce over the peppers. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until peppers are tender, the filling is set, and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the middle of a pepper reads at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), 55 to 60 minutes. Uncover and top each pepper with 1 tablespoon Cheddar cheese.

These were delicious. I sliced mine in half instead of stuffing the whole pepper, which is what I usually do. I did this just for looks but they were wonderful. One little side note though.

I mixed Ground Turkey with Beef and omitted the sauce on top. I also skipped the boiling the bell peppers step and everything turned out great. Very tasty and next time I will add some cheese to the meat mixture.

Very tasty, next time I might add some cayenne pepper to give it a little kick.

I substituted Johnsonville hot Italian Sausage and it added a lot of flavor and gave it a bit of a kick. I also added mozzerella cheese in place of the cheddar. Delicous! Flavors blended well. We loved it and will try this again.

My family loved the flavor and presentation but the rice was undercooked and I even added extra time to bake. I added garlic powder and used red and orange peppers to make it fun for Fall! Next time I will cook the rice before placing mixture in peppers.

Turned out great even though I precooked the beef before I added it to the filling mixture, I also didn't boil the peppers and I omitted pouring the extra sauce on the top.

Excellent and easy! I added finely chopped garlic cloves to mine.
