Happy Halloween to all!! On this episode we’re having a very nice treat, no tricks! We are making stuffed bell pepper jack-lanterns!
Half an onion
A jar of non-meat spaghetti sauce
A cup of instant white rice
Mozzarella cheese slices
Gather all of your ingredients. Start off by dicing up your onion. Then cut the tops of your bell peppers off and clean them out. Set the vegetables aside and slice up about 4 or 5 strips of bacon. Preheat your oven to 350° and on the stove heat a medium pan to medium heat and bring both your bell peppers and rice to a boil in separate pots. While that happens cook your bacon on the heated pan until it becomes fully cooked and is your desired consistency (chewy or crunchy). As the bacon is cooking continue to check on the rice until it starts boiling and when it does, remove it from the heat so it can absorb the water. Also check on the bell peppers and keep them boiling until they are tender to the prick of a fork or knife with a little resistance. When you see that the bacon has cooked through a little bit, add in your onions and a spoon of minced garlic to cook with the bacon. When the bell peppers are ready, drain them and set them on a baking sheet to cool. By this time the bacon, onions, and garlic should be cooked through and the rice should have completely absorbed all of the water. Dump the rice in the bacon pan and mix everything together. Then add the spaghetti sauce to the pan and mix. Now you have your filling done and are ready stuff your peppers. Take your filling and spoon it into the empty bell peppers all the way to the top. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of each bell pepper and stick them into the oven for about 5 – 10 minutes or until the cheese has completely melted. When it does you can devour the bell peppers as is or you can carve a cool jack-o-lanter lake face on them and be festive THEN eat.
