Stuffed Peppers

Goodness, tonight's dinner was amazing and I think that personally my cooking skills are getting a little better which is always awesome. I do still have an extremely long way to go, but thank heaven my husband is a chef so he can be there with me every step of the way to guide me down the right path. I envy his awesome abilities in the kitchen, I really do. Here's a fun and simple meal that you can easily cook at home next time you're in the mood for something delicious to eat.

Stuffed Peppers

1 pound of ground beef 1/4 cup of diced onions
1 cup of bread crumbs 8oz can of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon of salt 3 green peppers
1/4 teaspoon of pepper

Instructions

1. Preheat your oven to 350 and get out all the items that you will need to prepare this meal. 2. Mixing the ingredients. Combine the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and the diced onion into a mixing bowl. I find that when you mix the dry ingredients in with the ground beef first it comes out tasting better. Then once you've mixed all that in with your pound of ground beef you can add the tomato sauce in really good until its all nice and ready to be stuffed into the green peppers. 3. Preparing the green peppers. Get out a medium sauce pan and begin to boil some water as you prep your green peppers. Cut a hole into the top and get rid of all the seeds and unwanted stuff with in the pepper before putting the peppers into the boiling water for at least five minutes. Any longer then that and they will split open as you try to stuff them full of the meat. I use a timer that way I'm 100% sure that I'm getting it out of the water within the five minutes. Once the timer goes off and the five minutes is up remove the green peppers from the water and dry them for a moment on a dry paper towel before setting them into a deep baking dish side by side. 4. Stuffing the green peppers. Now I love tons of cheese so this part is completely optional as you stuff your peppers, but if you do love cheese enjoy mixing a little bit of cheese into the mixture of each pepper while you are stuffing them. Stuff the peppers nice and good with the meat filling then quickly wash your hands and proceed with the next step. 5. Baking your stuffed peppers. Cover the dish with foil and slip it into the oven for 45 minutes, and once again if you are a busy person like me and have an ADD mind set you may want to make sure you set a timer. Once the timer goes off, reach in and pull the foil off the dish then proceed to baking the peppers for an additional 15 minutes. You can also pull the peppers out for a moment and top each one off with cheese, but like I said before cheese is completely optional. 6. Prepare your dinner. The stuffed pepper alone is wonderful, but a meal always needs something from every food group in order to be a complete dinner so make sure that you get a nice pot of rice going while the peppers are baking so that when they are done you have fresh rice. Rice goes well as a side starch or something you can mix in to your pepper as you cut it up and eat it. Remember to follow each direction carefully and to enjoy as you cook.
