Italian Bread & Sausage Stuffed Peppers

Servings: 4
Total Time: 1 hour
Recipe by: Rae


6 cup dried bread cubes
1/2 lb Italian sausage
1 cup small chopped onion
1 tsp granulated garlic
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp fresh chopped basil
1/4 tsp fresh chopped oregano
1 tsp fresh chopped parsley
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
4 bell peppers, your choice in color
4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the bread in a large bowl and set aside.

2. Brown the sausage over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the onion and granulated garlic stirring until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add 2 cups of the broth and bring to a boil. Pour the mixture over the bread and cover for 5 minutes.

3. Stir in the egg, basil, oregano, parsley, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. The mixture should be moist but still hold together, if not add a bit more broth.

4. Cut the tops off the peppers (save for another use) and remove (and discard the seeds). Fill the peppers with the bread stuffing. Place the peppers standing up into a deep baking dish. Add 1/4 cup of water to the bottom of the pan and cover with foil.

5. Bake for 40 minutes. Uncover and top with the mozzarella cheese (about 1 oz per pepper) and bake for 8 more minutes or until cheese is melted and golden brown on top.
