A Cool Weather Favorite...

If you're anything like me, cooler weather means it's time to break out the slow cooker! When it comes to recipes, my slow cooker bible is Fix-It and Forget-It, edited by Dawn J Ranck and Phyllis Pellman Good. It is full of recipes for everything from apple cider to hash brown potatoes to chili and stuffed peppers. We tried a new stuffed pepper recipe last night and loved it! We substituted ground turkey for the ground beef and added a few more dashes of hot sauce to liven it up; but this was an easy recipe that all three of us enjoyed.

Stuffed Bell Peppers

8 large bell peppers
2lbs. ground beef, lightly browned
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup cooked rice
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup ketchup
dash hot pepper sauce
2 t salt
1/2 t pepper

Combine all ingredients except peppers. Gently pack mixture into peppers which have been capped and seeded. Place in greased slow cooker.
Cook on low 9-11 hours or high for 5-6 hours
