I made this last night. I made some changes. I put fresh mushrooms in with my onions & garlic. I also put basil & grated cheese in the mix, the next time I'll try anchovies also. My peppers were thick walled so I baked them 1 hour at 425 deg. First half the time covered. It's sooo good!

Good suggestion! I love mushrooms. I find your anchovy idea a bit daring, but I'm game! I know that they sneak anchovies in several things that I like including salad dressings so maybe it's something that I should be using more often.

find a differern recipe idiot!!!

Is there a reason why you are so rude, hoss?

I made these for a work potluck. I made them the evening before and re-heated them. The stuffing got a little soggy but they were really good. My only real criticism is where are the written directions to this recipe? I had to listen to it from the video and it was very hard to hear even though I had the sound turned all the way up. Luckily this was an easy recipe. I will make these again.

This is SO yummy I am used to the same old stuffed peppers with rice ground beef etc that turned out Okay but nothing great I was in search of a different stuffed pepper recipe and came across this one I was not sure it was gonna cut it because it didn't seem substantial enough and didn't seem to be a lot of stuffing I used red and yellow peppers and coated them with a bit of olive oil before topping with the stuffing I also sprinkled with a bit of grated cheddar on the stuffed peppers They turned out amazing My company loved them and couldn't believe there was no meat in it and neither could I I almost omitted the tomato and thought there may be too much fresh parsley but thank goodness I didn't alter because it was sweet and tasty and just perfect LOVED it and willRead More definitely make again

I use the red, orange and yellow bell peppers as they are sweeter than the green ones. I make them using my choice of veggies and also make them using rice and meat. The veggie ones are great as a side dish.

Perfect! You got me thinking that I could use the red, yellow, and orange sweet gourmet peppers in the bag. They are smaller and not sick a big commitment to eat. Lol

For all those complaining that there is no meat in this stuffed pepper recipe... please note that it is being used as a side dish, not the main entree. The name of the recipe is exactly what it is.. a stuffed pepper.

Yes, another great recipe from Mr. Food! Loved this. So did my husband.

Wow, tough crowd!!! All stuffed peppers do not have meat and rice. That's the nice thing about cooking, you can make things the way YOU like them. I never use meat in my stuffed peppers, but that's how I like them. I grew up with Italian stuffed peppers without the meat. I do like them with hamburger and rice too though. Lighten up, people, you'll live longer! ( :

I think I will add artichoke,s or just rice.

I think when I'm looking for a stuffed pepper resp. I expect a MEAT resp. not VEGETABLE if your running a resp. that's VEG . STATE IT AT THE BEGINNING ( A LITTLE OVER DONE ! )

Oh my! I can't imagine anyone being upset that some recipes contain no meat. The photo used with this recipe definitely looks like no meat is used. Open your mind and enjoy all that vegetarian eating has to offer. I am just thrilled to see this delicious recipe. If you truly MUST consume muscles and blood, then just add a little meat to the recipe yourself. We vegetarians alter recipes all the time to have them not include meat.

Who kinked your knickers

You do need to parboil the peppers first if you want them to be soft Steam them or drop them into boiling water for - minutes they'll be nice and tender These are all the ingredients that I use to make salmon patties if you want to add meat try some canned wild alaskan salmon Very nutritious and tasty with all the garlic and onion and red pepper If you haven't tried canned salmon yet drain it and mash it up with a fork Some folks pick out the little bones and the skin but you shouldn't they're full of calcium and vitamin D just mix it all together The salmon is cooked in the can it's wild and isn't contaminated and has the highest levels of vitamins I also add a teas of dry mustard and worcestershire I've never cared much for fish but this is one of my favoriteRead More combinations of flavors

I don't include the green pepper...they have a pretty strong flavor, the red is sweet.


I will try this Recipe, but will be add hanburger and rice.

No Meat? Ugh!

Now you know how vegetarians feel 99% of the time. Meat! Muscles and blood! Ugh!

The cooking time appears to be wrong as the peppers weren't even close to being done and the filling was like saw dust.

These would be good with some sweet italian sausage too!

My Mother's recipe calls for steaming the whole pepper and then cutting in half to serve. Also the loose skin is taken off each steamed pepper before cutting in half. This is done with only red bell peppers . Has anyone else ever used this receipe....anchovies, breadcrumbs and olive oil only.? None of the above ingrediants were used, nor did she bake them.

I don't read anywhere in the recipes where anchovies is an ingredient called for.

It sounds like you might consider searching online for "stuffed roasted red peppers with anchovies, breadcrumbs, olive oil".
