Simply Stuffed Green Peppers
This recipe is provided by Prego. Like any other brand, they want to promote their own product. But I am sure using your fave brand of sauce will not make much of a difference. I followed this recipe directly. However, I omitted the sausage, and just used ground beef. I added not only oregano (as it calls for), but I also added basil, fresh garlic, salt, pepper, garlic powder. And instead of mixing in the mozzarella, I saved it for the last five minutes of baking where I added a few slices of cheese to each pepper.
I served this with roasted potatoes, but I ate the left overs with white rice and it was delicious :)
Easy Garlic Mashed Potatoes!
Super excited to make this with homemade stuffed peppers! Here is the recipe link. I’ll be posting my results this weekend.
For those days you really want a meal that reminds you of home, but you simply don’t have the time to knead your own dough…
Half-Ass Homemade Pierogies
- 1 pouch of Betty Crocker Roast Garlic & Cheddar Instant Mashed Potatoes
- Or about 3 cups of your own mashed potatoes, seasoned of course.
- 1 package of jumbo shells (usually yields about 35 shells).
- Oil or butter.
- Sour cream, or applesauce if you’re into that kinda stuff. ;)
Prepare mashed potatoes as directed and then set aside. Prepare jumbo shells as directed. Once cooked to al dente (soft, but not mushy), submerge in a dish of cold water to stop cooking and to prevent sticking.
One by one, take each shell and carefully pry open to dollop about a teaspoon-tablespoon of the potato mixture. Carefully roll shell up, and gently squeeze and slightly push mixture to the ends of each shell; this will seal the deal and push out any air bubbles. Place in a container or dish.
Once finished, feel free to fry them up with onions for extra flavor, and serve them with a side of sour cream and/or apple sauce.
Also, feel free to use other flavors of mashed potato mixtures, or add more cheese, or meat. Get weird.
Hi there. You may have missed me, then again maybe you have not. But guess what, Gourmet Grubbz is coming back to the spotlight.
This first started out as an assignment, within restrictions and guidelines of a classroom setting. However, this is no longer under those restrictions anymore. Therefore, Gourmet Grubbz is going to be redefined, redesigned, and is going to bring a whole lot more to the table. ;)
Check back for a whole new fresh look and attitude.
It’s about to get interesting.
