Recipe source: I have no idea

Ever since finding this recipe, I have never made traditional stuffed green peppers with rice. I don’t even remember where I got the recipe from, but it is the absolute best stuffed green pepper recipe I’ve ever tried. BP loves it, too.

Instead of rice, the peppers are filled with a mixture of ground beef, sausage, tomatoes, feta, Parmesan, mozzarella and some spices. Delicious.

I halve my peppers and lay them in a 9×13 dish, rather than actually trying to stuff them, which is why you can hardly see any of the green pepper in the photo. It’s buried.

beef and feta stuffed green peppers

Recipe

1 tbsp. butter

4 green peppers

1-1/2 lbs. ground sirloin (I use ground chuck usually.)

1/2 lbs. ground sausage (hot or mild)

1 small white onion, diced

oregano, seasoned pepper and fennel seed (optional) to taste

6 Roma tomatoes, sliced

2 tsp. crushed garlic or 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

6 oz. fresh feta cheese, crumbled

1/2 c. grated Parmesan or Romano cheese

1/2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray casserole dish with non-stick spray. Cook ground sirloin and sausage at low-medium heat, stirring often. Once meat is cooked through, drain thoroughly. Add all butter, onions, garlic, oregano, seasoned pepper, fennel seed and 3/4 of the tomatoes. Simmer over low heat, approx. 20 minutes.

Cut off tops of peppers, remove inner seeds and membranes. Wash and dry. Fill peppers with meat mixture, alternating with a layer of feta and Parmesan cheeses. Place peppers into a casserole dish, side by side, adding remaining tomatoes to the dish (around and under the peppers so they cook up and into the peppers).

Add remaining mixture around the peppers and sprinkle all remaining feta and Parmesan cheeses on top. Add shredded mozzarella cheese.

Bake at 350 for approx. 30 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.
