I found some BIG, beautiful red bell peppers at the Farmer's Market. All the peppers are at their peak right now, sweet and delicious. It has been a while since I made stuffed bell peppers so I decided to make them for dinner.
I picked up a pound of spicy Italian turkey sausage at Lazy Acres, mixed it with one egg, added some cheese, chopped chard, and stuffed them. Into the oven for a short time and they are ready to serve. Super simple, super fast, and super good.
SPICY ITALIAN TURKEY SAUSAGE STUFFED RED BELL PEPPERS
1 pound spicy Italian turkey sausage
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup cheese blend (white cheese, like mozzarella or a blend is best)
3 red bell peppers, top cut off and inside cleaned
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Mix the sausage with egg, and most of the cheese (save some for topping). I added some chopped chard because I had it but it is great without it.
With a pastry brush brush the inside and out of the bell pepper with olive oil. Fill with the stuffing mixture and bake for 30-45 minutes until stuffing is firm and bell peppers have started to soften.
Sprinkle a little of cheese on top after 30 minutes of cooking time.
