Stuffed Green Peppers

I have found a magical ingredient! It’s amazing: Ground Turkey Breakfast Sausage. It’s at Wal Mart with the other turkey meat. It’s sooo flavorful, so you don’t even need to add seasoning to most dishes. Everything I’ve made with it is delish, so I’ll have to post some other recipes soon. I tried this one last night, and it was great. I modified the recipe from This recipe is great if you’re trying to eat more veggies, low carbs, and lean protein. A great lean and green meal!

Stuffed Green Peppers – makes 3 servings
3 large green peppers
1 lb lean ground turkey breakfast sausage
1 ½ cup finely chopped cauliflower (easier to cut if frozen)
1 can Rotel
A couple slices of low fat cheese

Preheat the oven to 350. Start a pot of boiling water. Chop off the top of the green peppers, take the seeds out, and boil the peppers in the water for about 5 minutes, or until desired tenderness.
Brown the turkey breakfast sausage and pat off the extra fat with paper towels. Combine the sausage, Rotel and cauliflower in a bowl. Place the peppers in a baking dish, then fill them with the mixture. Top with 2-3 thin slices of cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and filling is heated through.

*If you use another meat, you will probably need to add seasonings such as taco seasoning, Italian,)
