We always have a lot of extra peppers in the garden. So I prepare a bunch of these stuffed peppers, then freeze them for baking later. That way, we can enjoy them year-round. They're always a treat, no matter how often I serve them!

"I halved this recipe, used two green and two red peppers. I followed the recipe but did use 1 1/2 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce and a shake of crushed red peppers. I also used the broccoli-cheddar rice suggested by another cook. I cut the peppers in half and baked in a 9x13 pan. It was delicious, I will make again."

"I made these last night for dinner and the family could not get enough! I did double the chili powder. This is a keeper!!!!!!"

"This recipe is from the Farm Journal magazine. I inherited my grandmother's cookbooks and when I came across their Plantation Stuffed Peppers recipe I realized it was the same one my mom has used for years. People always ask for the recipe. I recommend doubling all the seasonings, as this recipe was written over 50 years ago when people seemed to prefer less spice. Also, I don't like green peppers so I usually use red and orange. Other than that, this recipe is perfect."

"I chopped up a red pepper and put it in the stuffing mix when the onion was added. I wish I added more chili powder than recommended because it was kind of bland. The overall recipe was very good though. It was moist and the peppers were cooked well. They were also easy to make. I will be adding some crushed rep pepper next time or more chili powder."

"Halving the recipe, I added 2 finely chopped jalepenos and a few (6 med-large) chopped mushrooms to the onion/hamburger mix. Used the full lb of burger and 1c rice. Added less chili pwdr because we don't like that flavor to be too overpowering, but that's just personal preference."
