    Peacefulone's Note:

    Delicious individual slices of meatloaf panfried inside pepper rings then finished in a rich tomatoe sauce. From Cooking for Real with Sunny Anderson. I've posted the recipe as found on the website, but I usually use pork, beef and turkey, make a larger amount and need more peppers. I also zip up the sauce with some red pepper flakes as well. I have not tried the fried sage leaves yet but it is still a Great meal and even better leftovers!

      This recipe is outstanding! I've made it several times and it's always great. The flavor is like stuffed peppers in tomato sauce (which is exactly what it is, of course!). I haven't used any turkey yet just the beef and dried sage instead of fresh. Make sure you use wide peppers, the first time I made it they were too thin and I wound up with some patties not having a pepper but they turned out good also. Thanks for posting it here!
