Thanksgiving-Leftover-Stuffed Peppers

Thanksgiving leftovers? 
Um, Erin, how do you still have any Thanksgiving leftovers?
I know it’s what you’re all thinking. That’s ok though. You’re not alone!
As the days until we leave tick away more and more quickly, the to do list seems to grow. In direct proportion to the amount of food we’ve got to get rid of. So it seems.
Time to get creative!

This is another great hubby creation, though we thought it up together. Also (thank goodness!) we didn’t have quite enough leftovers to make the stuffing for the peppers, so we augmented with some ground beef. 



Thanksgiving-Leftover-Stuffed Peppers
(all measurements approximate)
1-2 pounds leftover turkey meat
3/4 pound ground beef
2.5 cups stuffing
3 potatoes, boiled and diced into 1″ cubes
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg
1 tsp minced dried onion
1-2 dashes each: salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic salt, celery salt, cayenne pepper, oregano
5-6 peppers, scooped out
Add all ingredients except peppers into a food processor and mix together using the dough blade until well-blended. Stuff into peppers. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve with sour cream and a Ceasar salad. Yum!

    What a good idea, we are leftoverless, but this is a great idea, thanks.

  3. I love stuffed pepper and that’s a great recipe. I love the spices you used. I make stuffed peppers frequently but I cut mine in half, stem to bottom, and the stuffing cooks up so nice and browned that way.

    Awesome use of what was left – I love stuffed peppers – I think this would have been scrumptious and I bet the added beef gave it just enough different flavor that it felt on purpose insead of a leftover dish. Thanks for sharing your creativity at the Hearth and Soul Hop. Sorry I haven’t linked up to the Friday Potluck in awhile – it is CRAZY at my house right now.
