Mild Stuffed PeppersWhen I was a young girl I enjoyed collecting recipes and I still do. I subscribed to the Betty Crocker Recipe Card Library. Each month a new package of about 24 recipe cards would come. That was in the early ’70s.

The stuffed Green Pepper recipe comes from that box of recipes. Stuffed Green Peppers are one of those comfort foods perfect comfort foods, and they’re also great for using up ground beef when you have some leftover from another recipe.

An oldie but a goodie! This is still the best stuffed pepper recipes I’ve found.

Here are the ingredients: green peppers (or red if you prefer), ground beef, bread crumbs, chopped onions, salt, pepper, tomato sauce and shredded cheese. I forget to grab the cheese for the picture below. These things happen…

I also rinse out the can and dump it in the bottom of the pan.

Cover and bake for 1 hour. Remove cover and sprinkle some shredded cheese on top and bake an additional 10-15 minutes

When peppers are done slice open and pour a little of the pan juices over the top- of the stuffed pepper.
