Stuffed Pepper Casserole

October 8, 2014Teresa

Stuffed Pepper Casserole is a delightful recipe is reminiscent of Stuffed Green Peppers but in a layered casserole form. Instead of using rice, this casserole uses herb-flavored bread stuffing. Green peppers are layered on the bottom of the casserole dish. Followed by a mixture of browned ground beef, onions, diced tomatoes, corn and stuffing mix. Then additional stuffing is mixed with butter and scattered on top of the casserole.

The first time I tasted this recipe was when a friend brought it to a potluck our Sunday school class was having years ago. I loved it. But then, I’ve always loved Stuffed Peppers, Stuffed Cabbage Rolls and any main dish along that line. She found the recipe in one of the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks I gave her when she got married! I had always planned on making the recipe but just kind of forgot about it until I was looking through my recipe files in August. I thought this would make an excellent dish for a meal to bring to someone.

So when we had a friend in our current Sunday school class get hurt in a fall, I decided to make this delicious casserole when they said they liked “everything!” I brought them a salad, a batch of my Down-Home SuccotashCheese Bread, and Red Velvet Earthquake Cake. They loved everything I brought although I heard the most rave reviews over the cake. 🙂 I wonder why…..

If you enjoy Stuffed Green Peppers, or like Stuffed Peppers with bread stuffing, then consider giving Stuffed Pepper Casserole a try. Obviously, not everyone enjoys cooked bell peppers, so if they’re not your cup of tea, you probably need to pass on this recipe. But if you enjoy Stuffed Peppers, this is really an ingenious recipe and a fresh look at an old-world favorite.

I enjoyed the tomatoes, corn and beef in this mixture. Using herb stuffing instead of rice was a nice change.
