Garden Memories…

 This was one of my favorite meals growing up. I loved to go to the garden and pick green peppers for this particular meal. Just the smell of them takes me back to mom’s garden…
This is a great way to use any late season peppers and tomatoes.
Moms Stuffed Green Peppers
By The Gourmet Farm Girl

4 medium size green peppers
1 medium size tomato (sliced)
1 lb. ground lean hamburger
1 sm. chopped onion
1/3 c. ketchup
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
½ c. dried bread crumbs or panko crumbs
½ t. dried mustard
½ t. salt
½ t pepper
1t. Worcestershire sauce
¼ t. garlic powder or 1-2 small cloves chopped
or 1/2 teaspoon of Farm Girl’s House Blend seasoning
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Spray a 9×9 inch baking dish with cooking spray
Wash peppers and cut around the top of stem to remove and create a hole; remove the seeds and ribs of the peppers and set aside; slice the tomato and set aside.
Mix all of the other ingredients together with hands (or a large spatula) and fill each pepper with the meat mixture. Place peppers in the baking dish and top each one with a slice of tomato.
 Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the peppers are soft and meat mixture is cooked through.
Remove from oven and top with additional parmesan cheese; allow to rest for 2-3 minutes while the cheese melts. Serve with additional sliced tomatoes and rice or mashed potatoes
