We have a regular conversation ’round these parts… this one just so happens to be about stuffed peppers…
I will let you guess who the conversation is typically with… Miss Add or her Daddy…
It goes a little something like this…
“What’s for dinner?”
“What? Don’t you like Stuffed Peppers?”
“No… I tried them once and I didn’t like them one bit.”
“You always say that and then you end up loving it…”
Enter Laurie’s Stuffed Peppers…
“That one is a keeper right there… definitely one to make again.”
“I thought you didn’t like stuffed peppers???”
“I didn’t think I did, but that was GOOD!”
I found this mind changin’ recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s Summer in the Country cookbook a while back and just knew I had to try it.
After we tried it and enjoyed it so much, I was thrilled to find it also in the new yet-to-be-released Big Book of Home Cooking that Gooseberry Patch sent me to review.
It is just another reason why I cannot wait for you guys to pick out some great new recipes for me to try.
Ya see, all of the six recipes I have already tried from this book have been top notch… so I have my expectations set pretty high… just sayin’.
Anyhoo… back to the recipe.
Grab 4-5 bell peppers.
And OFF with their heads! Mwahhahha!
Now– since we are being so violent and all– scrape out the inside of each pepper with a spoon. Get rid of all the seeds, white membrane and then rinse the pepper inside and out.
Now it is time for the spa treatment.
Boil those gals up for about 5 minutes and then set them aside.
Meanwhile, chop up an onion…
While that is getting all nice and cooked up, I grabbed my rice cooker…
Once my onions were translucent, I added the rice to my shrooms and onions along with a couple dashes of hot sauce and some salt and pepper.
After a couple minutes, I added 1 can of tomato sauce…
And to beef up the dish, I altered the dish to include a pound of my seasoned ground beef.
