Greek Stuffed Peppers

  • November 10, 2015

So who didn’t grow up eating stuffed peppers? This is definitely a dish I can remember eating often as a child. I have taken a simple old fashioned recipe and given it a slightly different flavour base.

I’m a huge fan of feta! There’s something so satisfying about that dense briny cheese that always gets me. I would absolutely suggest using a good quality barrel aged sheep or goat’s feta if possible. The flavour and texture is so far superior to your packaged grocery store brand.

If you want to switch up this recipe feel free to add a different grain such as quinoa or bulgur.

This dish is so simple and quick that you could put it together the night before and bake it when you arrive home from work. It could even be made up to this point and frozen for future quick meals!

  3. Place the pepper halves cut side up in a 9 by 13-inch baking dish and fill each pepper half with the meat mixture.
