Stuffed bell peppers are a delicious and nutritious meal that’s easy to make and perfect for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for a healthy weeknight dinner or a crowd-pleasing party dish.

Ingredients & Preparation

The beauty of this dish is that you can customize it however you want! Start by prepping the bell peppers—you’ll want to cut them in half lengthwise before removing the seeds and membrane. After that, you’ll need some Italian sausage as well as some onion powder, garlic powder, parsley and cheese. Once these ingredients are all cooked together season with salt and pepper to taste.

The Filling

Now comes the fun part—the filling! Stuff each pepper generously with the meat mixture. Depending on how much filling you have left over, you may be able to stuff more than six peppers. Once your peppers are full, top each one with a sprinkle of cheese (cheddar or mozzarella work best). Place your filled peppers into an oven-safe baking dish then bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until they are tender.

Garnish & Toppings

Once your stuffed bell peppers are done baking, garnish them with fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro and serve hot with a dollop of sour cream if desired. You can also top them with diced tomatoes or avocado slices for added flavor. If there’s any extra filling left over, save it as an appetizer—it makes a great snack when served with tortilla chips!

Whether you’re serving up lunch for yourself or dinner for your family, stuffed bell peppers make a quick and tasty meal that everyone will love! With so many options available when it comes to customizing the filling, toppings, and garnishes, this classic dish will never get old. Plus, it’s an easy way to get your daily dose of veggies without sacrificing flavor. So why not give these stuffed bell peppers a try today? You won’t regret it!
