Stuffed Peppers With Cheesy Minced Beef

This recipe is a great one to make with the kids: It’s quick, tasty, and looks really special (and something they can be proud of creating.) To make ahead of time, place the stuffed peppers in the fridge covered in clingfilm, then when you’re ready to use just remove the clingfilm and complete Step 5.




Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 500g beef mince
  • 100g mushrooms, quartered
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 4 red, orange or yellow peppers, or a mixture, halved and deseeded
  • 100g Cheddar, grated

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas mark 6.
2. Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the onion for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and
cook for 30 seconds, then add the mince. Cook for five minutes, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until thoroughly browned. Drain off any excess fat.
3. Return to the heat, add the mushrooms and thyme and cook for a further three minutes. Season and set aside.
4. Place the pepper halves facing upwards on a baking tray. Season with salt and pepper, then spoon the mince mixture into each pepper until full.
5. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the peppers are almost tender. Sprinkle the cheese evenly on each one and return to the oven for a further 5-6 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbling.
