Inside-out stuffed peppers

This dish was born out of the fact that as kids, my mom made stuffed peppers a lot, but since my sister and I weren’t really a fan of the pepper part, she’d do bunches of the stuffing in foil as well. Now that I like peppers, I incorporate them back in – but I throw chopped ones into the actual stuffing.

Inside Out Stuffed Peppers

*½ red onion, chopped

*about half a package of mushrooms (I like cremini), chopped

*2 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled. Turkey bacon works well here.

*1 can tomato sauce

*2 cloves garlic, minced

*1 package ground turkey

*2 large green peppers, diced

*2 cups cooked brown rice

*olive oil.

*Salt, pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375.

Heat skillet. Sautee onion and garlic together until onion is tender. Add ground turkey (seasoned with salt and pepper) and mushrooms to the pan, and cook until ground meat is browned. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer.

Dump contents of skillet into large casserole dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Serve in bowls with garlic bread on the side.
