Munchie Mondays: Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

9:15 PM

It's been a while since I've done this feature, I'm not sure what happened.  We've still been eating.  LOL. 

I've made a conscious effort to cook new things. If I'm honest, I could survive off just spaghetti and nachos.  I could make a big pot of spaghetti on Sunday and then eat that until Wednesday when I would make a big pot of taco meat.  Sure that's not a balanced meal, I'm ok with that. 

I came across a recipe for these stuffed peppers and was intrigued.  The recipe was simple enough, and it contained my two favorite ingredients, meat and cheese :-)

Honestly, the meal almost didn't happen because I was eating the filling out of the skillet.  It was that good.

I served it with homemade mashed potatoes.  Ladybug approved!

 Jethro said it was good, but said it was missing bread.  I'll admit that while I'm not anti-bread, it's not something I think about.  Ever.  He said he needed something to "sop up the juices with", I suggested the potatoes, but apparently that's not the same.  Next time I'll add some crescent rolls.

  1. This looks good! I gotta try 'em. Hopefully he'll eat them...seems he has an aversion to anything that isn't rice and beans and steak..

    1. You've got a picky eater! Jethro will only eat "normal" vegetables. Green beans, corn, broccoli with cheese, otherwise he'll push them around the plate like he's 6. LOL
