Stuffed Pepper Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
This unique recipe tucks a stuffed green pepper inside the meat loaf. I've had this recipe so long I can't remember where I got it from. Scrumptious slices warm you up on a cold, blustery day. - Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas

Great recipe! My family really enjoys this meatloaf. I took it to a familyr reunion and it was a real hit with everyone there. I really like the surprise of the green pepper inside, makes a pretty presentation. I made the recipe exactly as written.

Have been looking for a variation of stuffed peppers that would be easier to eat for someone on a soft diet.

Thanks

Good flavor, but I added chopped onions to ingredients just because we like onions.
