Stuffed Green Peppers

Stuffed Green Peppers

This is one of those recipes that I would never order in a restaurant.  (Now that I think about it, do restaurants even serve Stuffed Green Peppers???)  They remind me of my Grandparents.  I used to make these and take them over to their house for them.  What an easy recipe!  I made two different batches of filling – one with meat and one without meat (my Grandmother didn’t eat meat).  I would stuff them and wrap them in foil so they could freeze them.  Then, as they wanted them they could take 2 out, thaw them and then either microwave them or bake them in the oven.  Perfect.

I have a few go-to recipes from my old Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook and this is one of them.  I’ve changed the recipe a little over the years so my version is what’s below.  I substitute Rice a Roni for the white rice.  I think it add more flavor.  Either way, they are pretty darn good.
