    Ground turkey or beef mixed with uncooked rice, salt, pepper, tomato paste and some oregano, parsley and/or basil.

    You can mix in an egg for every pound of meat if you want.

    Stuff in peppers or do it the lazy way:
    Layer meat mixture in a casserole dish, top with quartered, seeded green peppers, pour tomato sauce over & bake.

    I use any meatloaf recipe that I can grab. Like the one that is on the McCormicks meatloaf mix package... Quick and easy. Dang that sounds good!

    thanks everyone.. i used

    1lb of ground turkey
    1 small onion diced small
    tops of 4 peppers diced small
    1 pkg sliced fresh mushrooms diced small
    palm of parsley flakes
    3 cloves of garlic

    sauted all that in EVOO

    added rice i used 2 cups of cooked jasmine rice

    about 1 cup of tomato sauce

    mixed it all together... stuffed it into the peppers (had TON left over could have stuffed 6 - 8 peppers)

    its in a small dish with water in the base baking at 350* when they have been in for 50 minutes I will top with bread crumbs mixed with a lil parama cheese and cheddar cheese and melted butter.. mix till crumbly and top peppers and back in the oven till the topping browns
