Instead of rice I used quinoa. I used ground pork instead of turkey. I used cheddar cheese, and added two eggs. I put in about a large handful of chopped mushrooms, sautéed with onion instead of tomato, and a small can of tomato paste. I used thyme instead of oregano. It was worth the cooking time for a healthy and delicious meal!
This was good. Didn't us the topping. Will make again! Had to cook a little longer, peppers will be al dente.
I just made these, and they were great! I added some red pepper flakes when I added the other herbs. I think that it would have been a little bland without it. I also put 1/2 cup water in the bottom of the dish and covered it with aluminum foil and baked at 400 for 30 mins and then put a mixture of panko, parmesan and butter on the peppers and put it under the broiler for a few minutes. They were perfect!
Very good. I changed by omitting the breadcrumbs and the Parmesan, since I didn't think the peppers needed those ingredients. I drizzled olive oil on the stuffed peppers before baking to add moisture. I baked for 30 minutes and this resulted in a slightly undercooked medium-sized pepper. I'd bake for 40 next time, or wrap in foil. I'd also double the amount of diced peppers. Thank you for this recipe! It's a keeper.
When do you add the meat in?
I made this last night and it was spectacular! I used a low fat Monterey Jack cheese instead of cheddar. Also, my red bell peppers weren't very bell-like, so I ended up having flat bell peppers and topping them with the meat mixture then the bread crumb mixture. I actually liked it better that way and will probably do that again. This was the second time I've made stuffed bell peppers, and am really happy that I found a recipe this delicious! Thanks!
My family loved this recipe! Thanks for sharing.
I have made this recipe many times, and have never been disappointed. At times instead of using the Italian style tomatoes & related spices, I have substituted Mild Rotel Tomatoes, or Salsa, very tasty. I have served it to many guests and no one would ever guess they were eating ground turkey. Thanks.......DEB
Excellent Recipe!!! My husband and I LOVED THESE Peppers! I cut the recipe in 1/2 and only used 2 peppers, so the cooking times changed from the original recipe. One of the ways I made this lighter is that I steamed the 4 pepper halves 30-40min, used olive oil to saute the onions an garlic (5 mins), and then used ground turkey BREAST instead of regular, I didn't want to overcook my peppers in the oven so I went ahead and browned my turkey breast in the same pan with the onions/garlic. Once the turkey was browned, I added the remaining stuffing ingredients and mixed together as directed by the recipe. I stuffed my steamed peppers with the mixture and placed them in the oven until the breadcrumbs started to brown and appear somewhat crispy. I then took the peppers out, spooned a few dabs of my favorite tomato sauce and topped with shredded mozzarella cheese. Baked in the oven another 5 minutes to melt/brown the cheese. VIOLA!!! It was perfect and VERY Tasty!! Thank you Dibs!
This was really tasty!! I don't like ground meat, so I made them vegetarian, with some green onion (I should have used peas too) and some fresh cherry tomatoes. I also added scrambled 2 eggs in with the rice and cooked the rice in homemade chicken stock. My dad LOVES stuffed peppers, so when the parents come to visit, this will be on the menu. I may try these with shredded chicken or turkey next time. Thanks for the yummy recipe!!!!!
