Home Grown Stuffed Peppers

22 Aug
Welcome back!  I hope your weekend was relaxing and enjoyable.  Thank you to those who entered my giveaway!  I contacted everyone via Facebook so just send me your address if you haven’t yet.
As promised, I wanted to share the recipe I created using local Philadelphia products.
059
The products I used were:
Stepped-In-What Tomato Sauce
North/South Meatery & Canning Co. Pancetta
PA Noble Cheese, Cave Aged Cheddar

Stuffed Peppers

043
You will need:
•3 Frying peppers
•3 slices pancetta
•1 small onion, chopped
•2 oz. sharp cheese, such as an aged cheddar, cut in small cubes
•1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
•1/3 cup tomato sauce
•1 Tbs. olive oil
1. Preheat oven to 375.  Begin by washing peppers.  Cut the top of the pepper off and clean seeds out.  If you want, you can cut the top off so that it is a lid for the pepper.
2. Cook pancetta in a pan at medium heat until crispy.  Remove pancetta and let cool on a paper towel.    Do not clean the pan!  Throw the onion in the pan and sauté in pancetta fat until soft and caramelized.
3.  When onions are finished cooking, put in a bowl and add pancetta, cheese, bread crumbs, and sauce.  Mix until the consistency is thick and paste-like.
4. Using a spoon, stuff each pepper with the mixture until the mixture reaches the top.  When full, place each pepper on a piece of foil and then place the foil on a cookie sheet.  Drizzle the peppers with olive oil.  Bake for 35-40 minutes or until peppers are soft and lightly browned on top.
Serve over heated sauce and enjoy!

    I love how soft your peppers look, the one time I made stuffed peppers they turned out too crunchy! Next time I’ll try to bake for a little longer!

      The olive oil also helps them soften!

      I use Mozilla but I think the problem may be that I use Windows Live Writer to post. Im going to have to experiment to figure it out. Thank you for letting me know!

    These look so unique – different than stuffed peppers I am used to. I love peppers in any form though :)
