Meal Planner Monday: Stuffed Peppers
It's the time of year when bell peppers are in season, so "Stuffed Bell Peppers" makes a great, healthy, inexpensive meal (you can find green peppers at the farmer's markets for 4/$1 if you don't have your own)... I make mine in the crockpot using this recipe... 4-6 bell peppers, yellow, red or green, depending on preference (cleaned) 1 lb. ground beef or ground turkey (I use lean beef or 1/2 of each...see more about this on this week's Frugal Friday post) 1 cup of white rice (or less) 1/4 cup oatmeal 1 egg Salt Pepper Spoon mixture into the green peppers and set in the crockpot. Pour 1 can tomato soup (with the water added) over top. (Tomato sauce would be good too.) Cook on low all day.
