Stuffed Peppers in Cuisinart Oven

 

There may be a plethora of posts about the Cuisinart Oven Central coming up because I am finding it most useful.  It easily held six stuffed peppers, and reheated the potatoes, carrots and celery in the space around the peppers while they baked.  A quick steam on fresh broccoli, and dinner was a breeze.  Almost nothing to clean up – bonus!

    I love stuffed peppers, tomatoes, aubergines, and zuccini the Greek way. But yours looks pretty perfect, Judie. Hope you have good weather, too. Virtual hugs, Mitza

  2. This is the first I’ve heard of the appliance. Most interesting! Price isn’t bad either.

    I like your last line – nothing to clean up! I haven’t made stuffed peppers in years, probably because it’s just me and I couldn’t just make one or two.

      Why not make just two? Use the meat that you would have used for one hamburger patty laced with meatloaf-type additions, and cut a pepper in half sideways to make the base. It will bake quickly in a toaster oven, and you will have an extra one for another meal in a day or two. You can help the process along by putting it into the microwave for just a few minutes (not at full power!) to get all of the ingredients warmed up a bit. Then the time in a toaster oven is shortened, keeping the kitchen from getting really hot. If the meat is cooked through pretty well when you put them into the toaster oven, they will top brown nicely in about five or so minutes. Then you can sprinkle on some cheese (or a bit of cheese and some catsup) and let that heat through. YUM!

        I guess I’ll add peppers to my list of produce to buy!

        You go, Girl! The closed environment of the Cuisinart Oven Central makes short work of this sort of thing. I hadn’t preheated the stuffed peppers this time, but have used that method when using the toaster oven because of the small size of the toaster oven, and its proclivity to top-burn, rather than top-brown things that get too close to the top element if too much time is needed to cook through something like ground meat.
