My mom stuffed them with a meatball stuffing. That is how I make them. By the way, these peppers cost 4.99 a pound where I live!

That sounds good. These peppers are Neopolitan style. Yes all peppers are so expensive here in Georgia, as well. Thanks for reading my blog. Happy cooking!

Jan...I make them similar & they are mine & my family’s favorite way of eating stuffed peppers. That is how I grew up having them as a side dish. They are the only stuffed peppers I like.

I love them too. My mom made the meat and rice stuffing, which I love, too.
