Italian Sausage Stuffed Bell Peppers

I love preparing sausages in quite a few of my meals, especially since they're so flavorful. Today I want to share a quick and easy meal with a new variation. While I would use crumbled sausages in my stuffed peppers, I decided to use the sausage links since the kids complained that they would love bigger portions of sausages. I was able to prepare them using the Johnsonville’s Sizzling Sausage Grill which is a must have if you're a sausage lover like myself.

Personally I prefer to have my sausages grilled, however you would never find me outside in 40° weather just to have the perfect sausage, no matter how much I would love to. Well that is now a thing of the past. Now I can have perfectly grilled sausages with the Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill all in the comfort in my home. The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill grill is an indoor electric grill made to specifically cook 1-5 fresh Johnsonville sausage links to perfection in just 15 minutes. You can take your grill with you wherever there is an outlet which makes it very convenient.


What I love about this is that clean up is a breeze. Unlike your outdoor grill, the plates comes apart easily and which makes cleaning them virtually stress-free. The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill has a temperate probe that makes sure your sausages are fully cooked to perfection. It's enclosed design seals completely when locked, the juices and flavors never escape and there are absolutely no drippings splatter outside the grill. This must-have kitchen appliance will make the perfect holiday gift for all the sausage lovers in your life. So how have I been using my new grill? I have been making quick and easy recipes for my family and even changing up recipes for a few tried and true ones that we already love, such as our Italian Sausage Stuffed Bell Peppers.

Italian Sausage Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients

6 Bell Peppers
1 package Johnsonville Italian Sausage (with 5 links)
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup finely chopped tomatoes
½ cup parsley
½ cup shredded cheese of choice
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (for topping)
salt and pepper to taste


Directions 

Preheat oven to 350º.

Remove the top of your bell peppers including the seed and membranes and discard. You can save the top of your peppers as a cover, but there is really no need to.

Prepare your sausages in your Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill. Once they're completely done, chop them into small pieces.


In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté your onions, tomatoes, garlic and parsley until soft. Next add your rice, sausages, salt, pepper and shredded cheese and stir until your cheese is melted.

Spoon your sausage mixture into bell peppers and top with your mozzarella cheese.

Place your bell peppers into a baking dish (I used an aluminum tray) with a little water on the bottom, and cover with aluminum foil.

Bake for 30 minutes and until your cheese is completely melted. Serve and enjoy!
