Says Linda B. of Griffin, Georgia, “When making stuffed peppers, meat loaf or any dish with ground beef, I stir some brown sugar into the meat mixture. It brings out a delightful yet subtle flavor that’s extra special.”
Our daughters Kimberly and Kristina don't like the way the meat and rice mixture is usually stuffed inside big green peppers. So Kristina added a chopped pepper to the other ingredients in a casserole.—Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
I created this recipe—and haven't had any complaints yet! The peppers can be served alone as a meal or alongside pork chops, steak, hamburgers, etc. I love to cook...outside the kitchen. I enjoy crafts and writing.—Suzanne Hubbard, Greeley, Colorado
With my husband—who won't eat the same thing twice—I've had to learn to be creative with leftovers (around here, we call it "recycled food"). I put this recipe together to use up leftover meat loaf. When it's dressed up with homegrown peppers, he doesn't know he really is getting yesterday's main course!
Actually, leftovers are both coming and going in this recipe—if I have any peppers left over, I use them to make my spaghetti sauce.
Although we live close to Houston, there's a pasture near our house and we can hear the cows that graze there. We have two sons, 4 and 2.
