Step 1: Start the Filling
Tip #1 Sharpen your knives properly!
Prep all of your vegetables prior to starting anything! Begin to cook the brown rice. Now place all the ground meat into a large skillet and begin to cook through. Drizzle with olive oil and add in garlic, onions, and all the spices (amount of spices is to taste). Begin to mix in tomato sauce. You will only need to stir in about 3/4 of the can. Cover and let it simmer until use.
Step 2: Finish the Filling
Tip #2 Never have to follow the recipe exactly, try a new spice combo or add in something you may like!
Preheat oven to 375 F. Next place cooked rice into a large bowl. Add in spinach, feta, and sun-dried tomatoes. Next stir in meat mixture and mix it up really well!
Step 3: Stuffing
Tip #3 Remember to taste.
Now slice peppers in half, remove the seeds, stuff with the mixture, and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for about 30 minutes until peppers are cooked through.
Step 4: Serving and Suggestions
Remove cooked peppers from oven and garnish with an over easy egg, salt, and pepper.
