Dad’s Stuffed Peppers

When I was a kid my Dad would make my Mom stuffed peppers occasionally because she loved them so much. Unfortunately when my Dad passed away his stuffed pepper recipe went with him. I have never found any place he had written it down. After a lot of looking around and my Mom and I putting our heads together we think we have come up with my Dads recipe.

Like I said before they are my Mom’s favorite so I decided to surprise her with an early Mother’s Day dinner of stuffed peppers. She was so surprised and so happy. She said they were fantastic and just like my Dad’s.
