Stuffed Peppers in the Microwave

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Microwave

 Ingredients List

  • 2 Bell Peppers -- (halved,
  • Seeded)
  • 1 lb Hamburger (lean or 22%)
  • 2/3 c Rice (cooked)
  • 2 tb Onion (chopped fine)
  • 1 cn Tomato sauce (8oz)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • 1/2 ts Garlic (minced)


Place the four halves of the peppers in a glass pie plate, with about 1/8
cup of water. Cook them on high for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile; mix the hamburger with 1/3 can of tomato sauce, add salt and
pepper and rice. Get your hands in there and mix well.

Remove peppers from microwave, and drain all except 1 Tbsp of water from
dish. Turn peppers so the cup is up and fill with the H/B mixture.

Cook on high in microwave, for 7 minutes, then pour the remaining tomato
sauce over the top and cook for 5 minutes more.

NOTE: You can use cracker crumbs or dried bread cubes if you want. Margie
usually covers the stuffed peppers with a sheet of plastic wrap when she
cooks it, and I don't. Hers (covered) come out with a moist top and mine
come out with a crusty top.

You can use Cambells tomato soup instead of tomato sauce, but if you do cut
the salt down.

To cook in a conventional oven, bake at 350 degrees F. covered for 45
minutes, then uncover and cook an additional 15 minutes.
