Recipe Box: Stuffed Bell Peppers

Recipe Box: Stuffed Bell Peppers

Today I am sharing one of my all-time favorite fall recipes. It’s especially great because you can make a batch of them and have the leftovers for lunch during the week. Another plus is that it’s a “Dude Approved” meal. Guys love it, which is never a bad thing… And best of all, it’s healthy and Bikini Boot Camp Approved. Below is my personal recipe. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Recipe Box: Stuffed Bell Peppers

  • 6 large red peppers
  • 4 sausages (chicken, pork, turkey…)
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 cup of halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup of brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons of butter (or olive oil)
  • salt and pepper

Recipe Box: Stuffed Bell Peppers

  1. Heat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Set one cup of brown rice to cook on the stove.
  3. Chop up the onion and put it into a pan along with olive oil and cook on medium high heat until the onion begins to brown (around 5 minutes).
  4. While the onions are cooking cut a cup of cherry tomatoes into halves.
  5. Once onions are starting to brown stir in tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Stir constantly. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Now remove the sausage meat from the casing and break into small pieces. Cook meat for several minutes (until brown). Meat should be almost completely cooked though.
  7. Combine rice, onion, tomato and sausage pieces in a large bowl and mix together. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Cut peppers in half and remove seeds.
  9. Fill peppers with mixture and set into a glass casserole dish.
  10. Bake for 30 minutes and enjoy!

    Yum! Can’t wait to try that recipe! Here are two of my favorite fall recipes. The one cake I made this weekend:)

    And yes, these are MY photos.

  • Rachel Trampel

    AMAZING! Looks delicious, now I want to go home and cook this tonight for the bf and me! :) We are trying to eat healthier but I always find it is hard to find something that he likes and is healthy (go figure huh?!) Thanks for sharing!


  • Michelle V

    Mmm I bet quinoa would be a nice rice sub in those peppers. This is my ultimate favorite fall casserole. It’s so healthy too! My Butternut Squash Casserole:

  • Ashley Rizzardo

    Sounds yummy! I just perfected some stuffed tomatos that were pretty good if I do say so myself. :)

  • Martin M

    Thats really true! I love it. Always happy when my girlfriend is cooking Stuffed Bell Peppers for me. She is having a recipe with meat for me and without for her :) XOXO from Germany

  • Amanda Kretchmer

    Sounds delicious! One of my fave Fall recipes is a Roast cooked in the crock pot with some potatoes, onion soup mix, ketchup, onions, oilve oil, and any other veggies desired. So good.

    I love everything pumpkin during the fall season. This past weekend my boyfriend surprised me by making Martha Stewart’s pumpkin pancakes for breakfast Saturday morning. Talk about a great way to wake up and start the day! They’re easy to make and incredibly delicious (obviously, i mean, it’s Martha). We topped them with warm maple syrup and served them with a side of turkey bacon. I think we’re going to have to make them again this weekend, they’re just too good!

  • Deanne Castro

    Look delicious!

  • Laura Jewison

    Thanks Lauren!! Can Not wait to try :(

  • Christina Waters

    Have you ever made this recipe with a meat other than sausage? I’d like to try it but I’m allergic.

  • db_blacky

    You can do it with a variation of hamburger patties, my mum made those for my brother.

    I make this recepie but I stuff the whole pepper with the meat/rice combo and then boil them.


  • Kellie Norton

    YUM!! I have always wanted to find a good recipe for these!! Can’t wait to make them :-)

    I love when you post healthy snacks like this that are simple to make and require few ingredients. Living by myself, I’m always looking for things I can prepare to eat healthy solo, and it can be so difficult to find things that won’t spoil or that use ingredients that won’t be wasted. Keep these great recipes coming!

  • Summer Kotb

    ahhh I love this, bell pepers are my favorite! Going to try it tonight =)

  • Jackie


    I should try this!!


  • MeaganRae

    I love doing this recipe with Quinoa!

  • Joyce Rodriguez

    Did you know the easiest way to cut cherry tomatoes in half is to use two plastic lids (like the disposable kind that you get from the market with food in it), put several cherry tomatoes in one of the lids (right side up where the groove will hold them) and then invert the second lid so the groove is down, and put over the tomatoes. You now have a base to put your knife through and cut the tomatoes in half…I can’t take the credit for this, I got the tip from Rachael Ray but it works great! <3

    All of my guy friends expect me to know all kinds of killer recipes to whip out during tailgating season. I’m always trying to come up with guy friendly food that also appeals to my girlfriends… not always the easiest task.

    I’m planning a tailgate this weekend and I know this would be a hit with all of the guys! (anything mildly spicy and accompanied with meat usually is) I have a lot of girlfriends that are vegetarian or don’t care for much meat. Any suggestions on what I can replace the sausage with for a portion of this dish?

    Bell pepper in Russian is called Bulgarian pepper (bolgarsky). Looks similar!

  • Julia

    I have a question about sausages. What kind of sausage is it? Raw (need to be cooked), right?

  • cocobrown

    I also add Quinoa and use ground turkey. Healthier option for those that do not eat red meat and yes dude approved! finance loves this meal. Meal for days.

    • Kelsey

      How much ground turkey did you use?

  • Janae Turner

    How many calories are in one pepper?

  • Ashley

    I made this with my boyfriend tonight, we added corn, garlic and red pepper. We also topped it with fresh graded Parmesan on top. Very good!
