this week i am tackling STUFFED BELL PEPPERS!!!! i have been told by a lot of people, “i can’t make stuffed bell peppers, they always stay raw in the center!”. I just don’t understand that!!! mine have NEVER been raw in the center, so i have decided to give y’all my recipe to see if it’s any different from the one you readers are using.
i must confess, when i was young i was NOT a fan of the stuffed pepper, but as an adult i am IN LOVE with them!!! they are just so good!!! and i always make them with mashed potatoes on the side and use the tomato “broth/gravy” over the top!!! just can’t beat it!!! i hope you enjoy this weeks recipe!!!!
6 LG bell peppers (red/green/yellow/orange–YOUR choice)
