STUFFED PEPPERS


Stuffed Peppers for supper tonight. A family favorite. My Mom found this recipe using corn instead of rice in a 1950's Good Housekeeping magazine. We have made it this way ever since. 
 STUFFED PEPPERS

  1              POUND  HAMBURGER
  1               PINT  FROZEN CORN
 1                    ONION CHOPPED
1              QUART  TOMATOES
                        SALT
                        PEPPER
                        GARLIC
                        BREAD CRUMBS
                        BUTTER


SEASON HAMBURGER WITH SPICES.  THEN FRY HAMBURGER  AND ONIONS TOGETHER.
AFTER IT IS DONE, ADD CORN AND HEAT TOGETHER.  THEN ADD TOMATOES AND SIMMER UNTIL THICK AND MOST OF THE JUICE IS GONE.  DON'T GET TOO DRY.

CUT TOPS OFF 7 NICE SIZE PEPPERS.  FILL THE PEPPERS WITH FRIED MIXTURE.  

THEN I ADD BUTTER TO SAME SKILLET, MELT AND ADD A COUPLE OR MORE CUPS OF BREAD CRUMBS,.  I JUST USE BREAD THAT I HAVE RAN THROUGH FOOD PROCESSOR,.

TOP THE PEPPERS WITH  BUTTERED BREAD CRUMBS AND BAKE FOR ABOUT 40 MINUTES UNCOVERED,.  JON DOESN'T LIKE THE PEPPERS SO I DON'T PRECOOK THEM.  IF YOU ARE GOING TO EAT THE PEPPERS, I WOULD PUT THEM IN THE MICROWAVE FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES TO PRECOOK SO THEY ARE NICE AND TENDER.

DON'T PUT A LID ON AS THE BREAD CRUMBS WILL GET SOGGY.


I USE CORN THAT I FREEZE AND TOMATOES THAT I CANNED, BUT I AM SURE YOU CAN USE STORE BOUGHT ITEMS.
