Stuffed Bell Peppers

 I had some peppers in my fridge I needed to use up, so I decided to try these stuffed green peppers.  I was surprised how much the kids loved them!  The vote was to definitely add to the blog.  So, here they are...

6 sweet bell peppers
1 pound ground beef
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 carrot, shredded
2 stalks celery chopped
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup cooked long grain rice
1 TBSP. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. basil
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. coarse salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Cut the tops off your peppers and remove seeds from the inside.  Place in water and boil until crisp tender.  In a skillet, brown the ground beef and saute onions, carrots, celery, garlic until tender.  Add seasonings, egg, tomatoes, rice and worcestershire sauce.  Mix all together and stuff your peppers.  Top with cheese and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Oh, man - these look so good. Can you believe I've never in my life had a stuffed pepper?! I saw a version of these on The Biggest Loser last week and was drooling (although, they had chicken and I'm a vegetarian.. substitute, substitute).

This post really makes me want to try to cook some of these bad boys.
