Stuffing and corn kernels mix with ground beef and onion to make a delicious different stuffing for bell peppers.  Both kids and adults love this recipe, and it's on the table in just 45 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup Pepperidge Farm® Herb Seasoned Stuffing
  • 1 tablespoon butter , melted
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion , chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) whole peeled tomatoes , cut up
  • 1 can (about 8 ounces) whole kernel corn , drained
  • 2 medium green pepper , cut lengthwise into quarters

Directions

  • Stir 1/4 cup stuffing and butter in a medium bowl.
  • Cook the beef and onion in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.
  • Stir the tomatoes and corn in the skillet.  Add the remaining stuffing and mix lightly.
  • Arrange the peppers, cut-side up, in a 2-quart shallow baking dish.  Spoon the beef mixture over the peppers.  Cover the baking dish.
  • Bake at 400°F. for 25 minutes or until the peppers are tender.  Sprinkle with the reserved stuffing mixture.  Bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until the topping is golden.
  • Tip: To melt the butter, remove the wrapper and place the butter into a microwavable cup.  Cover and microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds.
