It’s Tuesday! And you know what that means… It’s my night of the week to cook. (You can see all my weeknight recipes by clicking here.)

We actually had friends over too — my friend Adrienne and her boyfriend Chad. So while the boys played Madden on Jake’s Xbox, she and I were in the kitchen.

It was a nice change of pace because I usually cook alone, but as she said while we were cooking: “it’s always better with two people in the kitchen.”

And she’s right too, because there was a decent amount of prep work that went into the dish I was making: stuffed bell peppers.

Some ingredients you’ll need to make your stuffed bell peppers.

Ingredients: Four bell peppers (I made two per person), 1 pound of ground beef, shredded cheese, tomato sauce, a small onion, a large garlic clove, salt, pepper, Worcestershire ground black pepper, a slice of bread, and one egg.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Slice off the tops of your bell peppers and hollow them out.
  3. Finely chop an onion until you’ve got enough for about 1/2 cup.
  4. Finely mince your large garlic clove.
  5. In a medium bowl,  mix together 1 lb ground beef, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, and 1/2 tsp Worcestershire ground black pepper. Break up a slice of bread into pieces and knead it into the mixture, and finally mix in one egg.
  6. Place your vegetables in a pan to brown, then add the meat mixture.
  7. Once your meat is cooked, add your tomato sauce (I used a 4 oz can), and let that simmer for a couple minutes. (You can also mix in shredded cheese at this point.)
  8. Take the pan off the heat and spoon it into your bell peppers.
  9. Top with shredded cheese.
  10. Place filled bell peppers in a baking pan that’s oven safe, and bake for 30 minutes.

And in ten steps or less, you’ll have some yummy stuffed bell peppers! And why not whip up a side of bacon wrapped asparagus while you’re at it?
