How to Make Stuffed Peppers

By: Leanne Ely

In today’s video, we’re going to stuff some bell peppers with my tasty meatloaf mix. This is one of my very favorite recipes and it is super simple.

To make my meatloaf mix you will need:

  • Grass-fed Ground Beef
  • Cumin
  • Garlic
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Half and half
  • Nutmeg
  • Ketchup
  • Bread Crumbs (or) Almond Meal (for a gluten-free option)
  • Eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Rice (optional)
  • Spaghetti or tomato sauce (optional)

Cooking instructions:

  • Stuff around two tablespoons of meatloaf mix into bell peppers
  • Bake stuffed peppers at 375-400 degrees for around 40 minutes (depending on how big your bell peppers are)

Watch the video above to not only find out how to make these delicious meatloaf stuffed peppers but I will also show you how to easily get the tops off of bell peppers and a very special trick for how to cook the stuffed peppers so that they don’t collapse in the oven!

Super simple and so delicious and tasty!

Servings 6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic pressed
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1/2 pound sausage not Italian
  • 3/4 cup fine bread crumbs


  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Add the onion, bell peppers, and garlic. Cook for a few minutes till fragrant and beginning to wilt, then turn on low till wilted, about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the meats, and remaining ingredients. Mix well. Add sauteed vegetables and mix well again. Shape into a long oval-ish blimp—resembling a fat loaf of French bread–and bake at 375 degrees in a baking pan, for approximately 45 minutes.


Serve with garlic mashed potatoes, (generously add some garlic powder when mashing the potatoes) and steamed broccoli. Enjoy!
