Mashed Potato Stuffed Peppers

When, I was planning meals for the Jewish holidays, I knew I wanted stuffed peppers.  When, I looked at my list of main dishes, I could not fit in a meat filled pepper so I went for a vegetarian pepper.  I thought of filling it with couscous, quinoa, rice, even kasha but in the end, mashed potatoes appealed to me, the most.   This is a nice change for a stuffed pepper, especially with our cutting back on meat.

  6. Ooooooh....I am a big fan of stuffed bell peppers...but I have never stuffed them with potatoes. Great idea! I used to par boil my peppers but one day I got really lazy. I just baked longer and it worked just fine. I hope you got my last email....sorry about the temporary freak out. Thought I couldn't fix the blog problem...but I did.
