Pork Meatloaf Stuffed Green Bell Peppers

"I was searching my pantry and refrigerator for ingredients to make a meatloaf, cause, you know, I was in need of comfort food. I came across this bag of green bell peppers that I had bought a few days ago and forgot in the back of the fridge (yes that happens to all of us). Luckily, the green bell peppers were still fresh, but I felt I had to use them now before they spoiled. I was still craving my meatloaf, so I came up with the idea to make little meatloaves inside the green bell peppers. The best of both worlds! Is it a meatloaf or a stuffed bell pepper? It’s both! Normally when making stuffed bell peppers, I would cook the stuffing separately, but since I was making meatloaf stuffed bell peppers, I’ve cooked the actual stuffing inside the bell peppers."
