Amish Sausage-Stuffed Green Peppers
"These Amish Sausage Stuffed Green Peppers are an easy dinner to highlight fresh summer produce. Full of hearty and comforting flavors, the freezer-friendly meal appeals to both children and adults for a simple dish that brings family together around the table! Almost 10 years ago, shortly after we moved to Madison, our next door neighbors started routinely gifting us with big bags of fresh produce during the summer months. We were obviously the new, young couple in the area, straight from the Big City, and completely naive when it came to gardening. We didn’t even have potted herbs at that point in our lives! Clearly Mrs. Peachey took pitty on us. On one of these occasions, tucked inside a big bag of bell peppers that Mrs. Peachey handed me over the fence, I found her recipe for Stuffed Green Peppers. She probably realized that I wouldn’t have a clue how to utilize 30 ripe peppers without at least a little bit of guidance! After trying Mrs. Peachey’s Stuffed Green Peppers nearly a decade ago, I can honestly say that it’s still one of my family’s all-time favorites. The hearty filling is perfectly balanced by the light and crisp bell pepper, for a comfort food dinner that won’t weigh you down."
