Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

Delicious weeknight supper idea. This is always a favorite meal that the entire family loves! Try this amazing Stuffed Bell Peppers RecipeDelicious weeknight supper idea. Try this amazing Stuffed Bell Peppers Recipe

I am a day behind this weeks for the meal deal!  The days just flew by.  Trying to get last minute things done around the house!  With Father’s Day coming up this weekend I wanted to really fix a great meal for Dad!  We all know that they deserve to sit down to a great meal on Fathers’ Day, and Mom shouldn’t have to spend the whole day in the kitchen.

I love these peppers because you can make the filling in advance.  That way you can just have the peppers in the fridge ready to go in the oven.  You can also make these ahead and freeze them!  I am a huge fan of those aluminum throw away pans from the dollar store! They are perfect for make ahead meals.  Hmmm…there is an idea.  One week we may post a bunch of Freezer cooking meals.  Enough for a week!  Sounds like a plan to me!

These stuffed Bell Peppers were the perfect choice this week with all of the summer veggies coming into stores at great prices.  Bell peppers can be so expensive if you don’t purchase them in season.  You can of course play with the recipe a bit and use yellow or red peppers, but my favorite are the green ones.  They have such a great flavor.

This recipe is one of my larger ones.  You will have enough to feed 6.  You can always half it, or freeze the extras.  Makes a fast an easy dinner for another night of the week!

    I’m wondering if you could do this with shredded chicken instead? Also, could you put parm. cheese in the filling? I’m thinking an Italian chicken parm. stuffed peppers.

    Mmm! Looks delicious!

    Quick question, though – how do you heat them back up after they’re frozen? Do you use the microwave or oven, and for how long?

    Thanks for sharing!

    I make mine very similar to yours. I freeze in seal-a-meal bags in individual servings so all you have to do is pop into some boiling water or cut a slit in bag and micro it. I love them so I always make sure I cook for an army when making them!!
    I think the idea of a weekly freezer meal it great! If you decide to do this I will gladly contribute!
    Thanks for all your work!

    I just thought I would throw out this idea in case someone else could use it. My husband and I get Chinese every once and a while.They give use white rice extra with what ever we order but I never know exactly what to do with it, it just popped into my head when I was reading this recipe of yours, that now here is a great use for that white rice we get. Thanks allot.
