Too Many Peppers !

I was washing dishes this morning and I looked over to see this big pile bell peppers. My husband and son are always bringing them in from the garden but I didn't notice there were so many. I already used some of them to make fajitas this week so stuffed bell peppers were my next choice. I looked in my new Betty Crocker Cookbook and found no stuffed bell peppers, I know my old one had it. My next place to look is always the Foodnetwork.com. I found a really good recipe there from Emeril Lagasse called Mr. John's Meat Stuffed Bell Peppers. It was really easy and quick. Cooking is not my favorite thing so I only cook easy recipes. I used ground turkey instead of beef and pork..... because it's all I had.

They turned out really good.......my husband does not like ground turkey too much but I think he will like these. We seem to have a lot of lettuce in the garden too so I think some salad and garlic bread and we'll call it dinner.

These look yummy! I remember my home-ec class when we made these years ago. They smelled so good while they were baking. I don't think I have made them since though. -Turkey is much healthier anyway.

I love stuffed peppers, but they don`t like me anymore. Your recipe looks really good.

I now use only ground turkey to stuff my peppers with. Any way I can reduce red meat is good as both my husband and I love red meat and need to reduce as much as we can.. He said yeck to ground turkey UNTIL he had it in the stuffed peppers. Have to think outside the box!
