A basic, but tasty, stuffed and baked red pepper recipe.


4 large red peppers
1 pound Italian sausage
2 apples
1 white onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 cup grated cheese
Salt and pepper


1) Cook sausage in a large skillet without casing over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage as it cooks and cook until it’s browned, 8-10 minutes. Then add chopped onions and cook until they are soft, 4-5 minutes.

2) Peel and dice apples and then add to sausage. Cook for a minute or two.

3) Add rice to the skillet and season wiht salt and pepper.

4) Cut the tops off of the peppers and stuff them full of the rice mixture.

5) Place peppers in a baking dish and bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees F. Add grated cheese to peppers and return to oven for 15 minutes.

Let peppers cool for a bit before serving.
