    Question:Stuffed Peppers

    Stuffed Peppers
    I've made this stuffed pepper recipe and my husband loves them.
    I was a little concerned the meat might not be fully cooked because it goes into the pepper raw? Maybe just cook them longer?

    I want to make them and freeze them. How do I cook them when they are frozen?

    What a great way to use our many harvested peppers.

    Thank you. Mgpdls

    PS. I think I may also use this for my meatloaf recipe but add a little green pepper, and jalapeƱo pepper finely chopped..

    My own stuffed peppers recipe calls for 90 minutes in the oven; I baste it every 30 minutes. I freeze them after cooking and reheat in the microwave, or in a small pot with a little extra tomato sauce.

    They won't be raw. You start with a pound of meat and divide that among the peppers. It will cook thoroughly in a hour.

    I've never frozen mine, so cannot help you with that. I wish I had peppers in abundance! I had no peppers at all - no zucchini, few eggplant - horrid summer.

    I stuff peppers with a raw meatloaf mixture (no rice) and cook them, it will be fine. If you're concerned, stick a meat thermometer in one to check.

    I stuff mine with a bacis meatloaf mix, too. Sometimes add COOKED rice IF I have it on hand... I don't go outta my way to cook it.

    I'm cooking for one, so usually take a large pepper and slice in half (vertically) to create a "boat". I usually make 2 large peppers and freeze the 3 portions not eaten before cooking... then vac seal. Next time I want one, just pop into baking dish and cover with tomato sauce... like to top with slices of bacon (like meatloaf). Into oven for about an hour at 350 or so... covered for about half the time. Can check with meat thermometer after an hour (from frozen)... usually done, but another 15-20 minutes won't hurt.

    Thanks kseiverd,
    Gave me what I needed. I freeze them uncooked so I cook them frozen 1hr, 350 after adding sauce. Covered 1/2 the time.
    Thanks again, mgpdls

    Think your time, temp and method are probably close to just what you'd find of a package of frozen/prepared stuffed peppers.
