Stuffed Peppers and Tomatoes

I had some leftover fried cabbage (cabbage sauteed in oil and bacon grease...so bad for you, but oh so good) and had this great idea to use it in stuffed peppers. Since I do not like green peppers I also made a stuffed tomato version.


ground beef, cooked and spiced how you like it
cook cabbage, chopped up
cooked rice
can of tomato sauce
tomatoes/green peppers for stuffing
cheese (optional)


Combine the first four ingredients and set aside (keep warm). Cut the tops off the tomatoes and green peppers and scoop out the insides. Place your tomatoes and green peppers open side up in a baking dish. Sprinkle some shredded cheese in the bottom of each, fill with the meat mixture, and top with more shredded cheese. Bake on 350 for about 20 minutes. For a softer pepper and quicker cook time try blanching your pepper before stuffing it.

You might like stuffed yellow or orange peppers rather than the green...they are aweeter somehow...but a stuffed tomato is a great alternative.
