Stuffed Peppers


1 lb ground chuck
1/8 lb sausage
1 egg
1/3 cup quick oats
1/3 cup milk
2 small [8oz] cans tomato sauce
1 med. Onion
½ cup of uncooked minute rice
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
2 large green peppers
Italian Seasoning


Combine: milk, eggs, oats, 1 can of tomato sauce, salt, pepper, garlic, onions [chopped], and rice. Mix. Add ground chuck and sausage. Mix again, thoroughly. Slice green peppers in half, top to bottom, clean and arrange in an 8X8 baking dish so that each pepper half can be filled with meat mixture. Spoon meat mixture into pepper halves (they will be very full). Pour 1 can of tomato sauce over all the stuffed peppers (some will run off the top of the stuffed peppers and into the baking dish, this is o.k.). Sprinkle Italian Seasoning lightly over each stuffed pepper, cover with tin foil and bake at 350 degrees in a pre-heated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, then remove the tin foil and bake for 15 minutes more. Set aside to cool for about 20 minutes and serve.
