Easy Stuffed Peppers

(1 Votes)
25 Min

Stuffed Peppers are a great all-in-one dinner dish. This version is full of protein and easy enough to make even after a tiring day of work.

What You'll Need

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound brown and serve turkey or beef sausage, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated light variety Cheddar cheese
  • 1 to 2 egg whites or 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 green, red or yellow bell peppers, halved and cleaned

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blanch the peppers and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet saute the onion in olive oil until just softened. Add sausage and saute until browned.
  3. Remove the skillet from the heat; add bread crumbs, cheese and egg and mix well. Cut peppers lengthwise then stuff with the sausage mixture.
  4. Place stuffed peppers into a baking dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.


Feel free to add your own favorite touch of fennel, cayenne pepper, chili powder or garlic.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just made these for dinner, and they are great! Love the texture. I used 2 pieces of bread and just crumbled the bread into the skillet with my fingers. I added a little cumin and seasoning salt. I was a little lazy and only did a quick blanch of the peppers so added about 15 minutes in the oven. I will make these again. The bread crumbs add good texture with less carbs than rice. Really good!
