Stuffed Bell Peppers

Campfire cooking continues.  This was a fun one.  While the filling inside the pepper would have been a little better with the full bread crumb and egg treatment like that used for meatballs or meatloaf to create a more tender and fluffy texture, it was still yummy.  Definitely hit the spot on a sub-freezing Colorado morning. 

To prepare a stuffed pepper, which is something that you can easily do in your home oven instead of a campfire, make a nice blend of ground meat and seasonings (in this case it was thyme, shallots, and money spice – but you could use any variety you like, such as eggs, bread crumbs, jalapenos, cumin seeds, and salt and pepper for example), and then jam it into a bell pepper as shown in the video. 

Once you got that all figured out, you spread a little oil across the outside of the pepper, wrap that badboy up in foil or place in a covered dish of some kind if making several, and bake on high heat until cooked on the inside.  Anyway, here’s the video.  Yum…
