From Elizabeth at OhioThoughts Blog



 8 – 10 Hungarian, Banana, Anaheim or similar peppers

1 pound savory sausage (or half sausage, half ground beef)

Aproximately ¼ to ½ teaspoon of each:

Coarse ground black pepper

Garlic salt

Italian seasoning


1 egg, slightly beaten

¼ cup finely chopped mushrooms

1 8 ounce package of Italian or mozzarella cheese

1 can stewed Italian tomatoes, chopped or  Italian diced tomatoes



Wash peppers and remove stems, seeds and white membrane.  Stem can be left on if desired. Cut peppers long ways on one side.  

Mix together sausage, spices to taste, 3 ounces of cheese, mushrooms, 1/3 of the tomatoes and egg.

If you are allergic to egg, just leave it out.

Stuff peppers with meat mixture.  Place each pepper on a lightly greased cookie sheet.  Sprinkle remaining tomatoes onto each pepper. Cover top of peppers and tomatoes with cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
