Stuffed Peppers and Sliced Potaoes

Well, I think it's time to add to the Recipe Box!

I always find myself searching for new ways to use good ol' ground beef.
Burgers and meatballs are great... but it's nice to incorporate something a little bit different into the mix.

I had some bell peppers that needed using up so I tried out this recipe for Stuffed Peppers.  They turned out really yummy!  I strayed from the recipe a little bit by adding sauteed onions into the meat and grated cheddar cheese sprinkled on top.  Next time, I'll try adding cheese to the meat mixture too.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 6 green bell peppers
  • 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • grated cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). 
  2. Place the rice and water in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and cook 20 minutes. In a skillet over medium heat, cook the beef until evenly browned. Add chopped onion and cook until translucent.
  3. Remove and discard the tops, seeds, and membranes of the bell peppers. Arrange peppers in a baking dish with the hollowed sides facing upward. (Slice the bottoms of the peppers if necessary so that they will stand upright.)
  4. In a bowl, mix the browned beef, cooked rice, 1 can tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and grated cheese. Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each hollowed pepper. Mix the remaining tomato sauce and Italian seasoning in a bowl, and pour over the stuffed peppers.  Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, basting with sauce every 15 minutes, until the peppers are tender. 

Now, also in my fridge were a couple leftover baked potatoes that had been cooked on the barbeque the other night.  They turned into these...

  • leftover baked potatoes
  • vegetable oil
  • salt

  1. Heat oil in skillet or electric frying pan.
  2. Add potato slices, turning occasionally.  Cook until both sides are golden brown.
  3. Remove from pan onto a plate covered with paper towel.
  4. Sprinkle with salt.

These were so delicious and the skins were delightfully crispy.  I served them with caramelized onions and those potatoes are leftovers no longer, that's for sure!  My husband told me that we should use up our leftover potatoes like this from now on.  Into the recipe box it goes!

Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I'm here to testify about what DR. OYAGU did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 2 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday. This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Shayla Bosschart on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. OYAGU on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. OYAGU prepared and sent me Healing Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after two weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. OYAGU assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. OYAGU for help via email} visit his website whatsapp him through his mobile} +2348101755322. , Thanks once again DR. OYAGU for making me a happy woman again.
