I made this for the first time last night, came out excellent. Take 1 lbs. of lean chop meat, sirloin is good. Try to get the leanest chop meat that
you can find. Mix with half package of Lipton's french onion soup mix, one egg, about a half cup of bread crumbs, two tablespoons of ketchup, 3
tablespoons of water.
Mix this up and stuff into 3 large bell peppers. (Cut tops off of the peppers and remove the seeds and pulp inside). With the peppers filled just
press the tops back onto the peppers, the meat filling should hold the tops in place, or use tooth picks or skewers to hold tops on. Put about a
tablespoon of olive oil on a baking sheet or baking dish, lay peppers on sides and bake at 350 for about 45 minutes. Until the peppers are soft and
meat looks cooked.
As an option I got some small zucchini from my garden, diced them and sauteed in a frying pan with some oil until cooked. I also added some chopped
tomato to the the zucchini when the zucchini were cooked half way through, then added this to the meat filling.
But I can imagine you can add many other things to that meat filling. Some ideas I thought of but haven't tried yet are cooked and diced potatoes,
cooked rice, cooked fresh carrots (or frozen/canned), raisins, squash, chopped/cooked peppers, etc.
