Tasty and Easy Stuffed Peppers

Hello my dear readers,

And since this week, we’ve discovered the peppers, today let’s try a super delicious recipe: stuffed peppers.

I love stuffed peppers and this is a very simple recipe. It will take a little longer to cook than my usual recipes but is well worth it.

Stuffed peppers are a delicious and substantial dish that knows many variations, one more appetizing than the other: from the vegetarian one, stuffed with a mix of seasonal vegetables, to the one with rice or quinoa, which becomes a rich and tasty single dish.

The peppers, thanks to their shape, are easily transformed into tasty containers to be filled with a delicious meat-based or veggie mixtures.

Cooking in the oven will ensure that golden and crispy crust on the surface that will make your mouth water just looking at them!

Simple ingredients but with a squisite taste.

Ingredients for 2 big peppers (4 half):

  • 250g ground meat (beef and pork preferably)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs
  • salt & pepper
  • fresh parsley for garnishing (optional)

How to do it:

Advice:

To keep the filling moist I recommend using also pork meat instead of using only beef and also instead of breadcrumbs, you can use stale bread soaked in milk and then  squeezed the milk out.

You can cook them ahead and keep them in the fridge for 1-2 days.

I don’t recommend to freeze them though.
