My mom, Cherri, made the best stuffed peppers. All the recipes coming from her cookbook were created to feed our large family of 8 plus friends. When it was stuffed peppers night, we would always have friends wanting to join us.
This is one of two stuffed pepper recipes. The second recipe, posted right after this one, is my dad’s adjusted version of this recipe: ‘Bill’s Stuffed Peppers‘. It was created for a couple picky eaters who don’t like onions or rice. Oh boy. But, it’s a delicious rendition, although this version is my favorite.
One thing you will notice about this recipe is that it uses uncooked rice. Please note that because the rice isn’t cooked, the mixture will feel a little wet due to the milk. This is needed so that the rice will get soft. Some recipes call for cooked rice. I’ve tried those recipes, but nothing comes close to my mom’s recipe.
Try either recipe or both. What’s your favorite?
