Some of you have requested to know what I filled my bell peppers with and the truth is it is practically my meatloaf recipe minus any type of cracker or bread crumbs or oatmeal. So what did I replace the crumbs with? Mushrooms.
Low Carb Stuffed Bell Peppers
2 bell peppers
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt & pepper
Cut each pepper into thirds, remove seeds and ribs, rinse and pat dry. Line the peppers up in a lightly oiled baking dish.
Place remaining ingredients into a bowl and mix until well blended. Evenly divide the meat mixture among the peppers.
Cover with foil and bake at 400° for 35 to 45 minutes until peppers are tender. Serves 6.
You can also shape the meat mixture in a meatloaf or mini meatloaves if you wish. Pretty versatile and of course completely keto/low carb. We have really enjoyed it and the mushrooms work really well as a substitute for the crumbs you would usually add to meatloaf. Good flavor and it also makes some pretty tasty meatballs too.
