Toaster Oven Stuffed Peppers

Ingredients

Serves: 4

  • 2/3 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups cooked long grain white rice (regular or instant)
  • 4 green bell peppers, tops cut off and seeds and membranes removed
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

Preparation method

Prep: 20 mins     | Cook: 1 hour 10 mins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat and cook, stirring, for about 8 minutes until no longer pink.
  3. Add the rice, 3/4 cup of the marinara sauce, and Worcestershire to the skillet and stir to combine.
  4. Stand the peppers in a small baking dish. If they don’t stand upright on their own, cut off a thin layer of the bottoms. Then carefully stuff the peppers with the beef/rice mixture.
  5. Top the peppers with the remaining sauce. Bake for 1 hour, adding cheese to the tops of the peppers after 50 minutes. Peppers should be soft but not mushy.

Tip

These peppers can be baked in a grill safe dish on the BBQ with the lid closed. Test for doneness by poking the pepper with a toothpick- it should penetrate easily.
