First Recipe - Stuffed Green Peppers

During my numerous daydreams of beautiful gardens, I ponder the fresh produce I could incorporate into my dinner menus. Thus, included amid my gardening attempts will be a few recipes to wet the appetite (quite literally) to the advantages of having a produce garden.

Today's recipe is a classic from my mom...
Stuffed Green Peppers
1 lb ground beef, browned
1/3 c onion, chopped
tt salt and pepper
1 (16 oz) can tomatoes (crushes or petite diced)
1/2 c water
1/c c uncooked long grain white rice
1 t Worcestershire sauce

6 green peppers, tops cut off and seeds cleaned out
1 c cheese

Simmer meat and rice mixture for 15 minutes over stove. Meanwhile, salt and boil peppers for 5 minutes. Stuff peppers will mixture, topping with cheese. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!

Kid Friendly Alteration
Rather than stuffing peppers, place meat/rice mixture in casserole pan. Dice or slice peppers and mix throughout or arrange on top. As before, top everything with cheese. Bake the same as original recipe. Peppers seem less overwhelming and might even remain hidden from those picky litter eaters at your house!
