Stuffed Bell Peppers

Mom's Stuffed Bell Peppers

These are economical when peppers are plentiful.
My son asked for the recipe, so here it is.

2# extra lean ground turkey
1# lean ground pork sausage
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 bunch Italian parsley, minced
1 medium onion, chopped fine
1 14 oz. can chopped tomatoes
1 1.5 oz. packet of Meat Loaf seasoning mix
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

5 to 6 bell peppers, halved and seeded.  I prefer red, but green, yellow or orange will do just as well.
2 cups tomato sauce
olive oil

Mix first 7 ingredients by hand in a large bowl. Stuff each pepper half with meat mixture and mound it high.  Put tomato sauce on bottom of large roaster and place stuffed peppers on top.  Pour a little bit of olive oil over the peppers and cover lightly with foil.  Bake at 400 F for 1 hour or until done, removing foil for last 15 minutes or so.  Serve with sauce.  10 to 12 servings.  These freeze well cooked or uncooked.

I consider this a family dish and never serve it for company, but don't know why on earth I don't.  It may not be elegant, but it is delicious.  Who doesn't like stuffed bell peppers?  This may be my number one requested dish for family get togethers and always makes my husband happy.
