DIRECTIONS

  • Brown the ground beef and finely dice the tomato.
  • Add the V-8 or tomato juice and seasoning until all ingredients are warm then remove from heat. Roll the bread slices in your hands over the meat sauce one at a time and mix with the sauce. ( you want enough bread to soak up the liquid to make the final product moist but not soupy). Remove the tops and all seeds from the peppers.
  • Spoon enough of the meat mixture into each pepper to fill to the top.
  • Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and then the cheese on top of each filled pepper so that the meat mixture is covered.
  • Place the peppers in a casserole dish with approx 1/4 inch water and cook in a 350 d egree oven until each pepper is soft to the touch (approx 45-60 minutes). This recipe can also be used for stuffed tomatoes but the cooking time will be shorter.
  • Enjoy !
