I made a very easy, cheap, quick and healthy stuffed red bell pepper recipe the other day. This was my first time making stuffed peppers. The prep time took about 10 minutes and bake time was only 8. The final result was delicious and one to keep for the cooking books!
The combined ground beef mixture
The seedless red peppers spread out on a cookie sheet
I used my tablespoon to disperse the mixture into the peppers
Sprinkled with cheddar cheese
After 8 minutes in the oven...cheese is melted and peppers are ready to eat
The end result, delicious!
