Stuffed Bell Peppers

This was outstanding, and I was out of a lot of the ingredients. These were so damm good!

This stuffing is very close to meatloaf, so if your husband does not like peppers, you might divide the filling and add an egg for binder to half the mixture. 

These are making me hungry! I love a good stuffed bell pepper.

GORGEOUS! These are seriously calling my name! Up until last year (so tack on a few years after I turned 20 lol) stuffed peppers and I weren’t friends either…now I’m totally in love with them.
