  • 3-4 large peppers, green, yellow or red, cored and cut in half (depending on size)
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground sausage
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 bag chicken or turkey flavored stuffing mix
  • 1 pepper, green, yellow or red, diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 celery rib
  • 1/-3/4 cup cheese, grated or shredded, more or less to taste
  • 2 tblsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons thyme, dried, ground leaves
  • 2 teaspoons parsley, dried
  • 1/2 cup crispy fried onions, more or less to taste
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup butter more or less to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a 13x9 inch pan with tinfoil lightly coated in cooking spray. Set aside.  

  2. Wash and core the whole peppers, that will be stuffed, and slice in half. Set aside. 
  3. Cook the sausage and ground beef with the thyme, salt, pepper and parsley in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add onions, celery and the chopped pepper. Sauté for a few minutes, until tender, then drain if desired (I don't usually). 
  4. Beat the eggs and then add the dry stuffing mix in to a large bowl. Combine. 
  5. Next dump skillet contents into the large bowl and stir together. Once fully blended prepare to stuff your peppers! 
  6. Using a spoon or your fingers press stuffing mixture into each pepper half and place on your prepared sheet, side by side. Sprinkle crispy fried onions on top of each pepper followed by a slice of butter and then shredded cheese. Bake for 25–30 minutes. Enjoy!
