Fantastic! The potatoes had such a wonderful flavor that paired perfectly with the red pepper. I made the potato part of the recipe on Sunday and then took care of the pepper part on the night I wanted to serve them for dinner. It cut down on weeknight prep time which made it a great weeknight meal.

Fantastic Recipe! What a colorful way to serve potatoes. I made the stuffing as directed and after a taste test, decided to go with SReiff's suggestion to add Worcestershire Sauce. Bergy's photo included the stem on the peppers, and I kept the stem on also. That made it a little easier to maneuver the potatoes on the baking sheet, and I think that would also be helpful if grilling the peppers. I used a potato masher to break up the cooked potato then added the other stuffing ingredients. My peppers tended to tip to the side, and I may shave a slice off the back of the peppers next time so they don't tip over. I was a little worried that there was too much gouda, but it was the perfect amount. I wasn't sure if the parsley should be fresh or dried, so I used fresh parsley. Thanks so much for a great recipe -- it was a big hit at dinner last night.

I am not sure if I can give this a true rating since I made this when I was trying to empty out my fridge, and I did not have all the ingredients, but it was still fabulous! I used cheddar instead of gouda, I used red onion instead of green, and I did not have sour cream, so I used about a 1/4 cup light mayo, I also did not have Greek, so I used just regular seasoning salt. I had to bake them since it was raining, and I did not have the foil to cover them!!! Despite all of these setbacks, we LOVED this recipe and will try it again for sure! Thanks so much!
