A note about serious food allergies

When we were kids, we were always confusing "Bolognese" with "bologna." (We were strange children.) No phony bologna sandwiches-with-names here… ground beef, cheese, tomato, and rich marinara fill these peppers with a combination of flavor that can't be beat. And gooey mozzarella on top. This meal has only one name: delicious.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, working in batches, if necessary.

  • If using ground pork, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using ground turkey, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up until turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Step 2, breaking up until burger is heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Start the Peppers

    Stem peppers, halve lengthwise, and remove seeds and ribs.

    Place pepper halves on prepared baking sheet and top with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into peppers.

    Flip pepper halves cut-side down. Roast in hot oven until tender, but still crisp, 13-15 minutes.

    While peppers roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Start Filling and Prepare Ingredients

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground beef, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    While beef cooks, core tomato and cut into 1/2" dice.

    Peel and mince shallot.

  3. 3

    Finish the Filling

    Add tomato and shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until browned, 3-4 minutes.

    Stir in marinara, softened cream cheese, 1/4 cup water, garlic salt, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir often until creamy and slightly reduced, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Finish the Peppers

    Remove baking sheet from oven. Carefully, flip peppers cut side up. Peppers will be hot! Use a utensil. Distribute filling evenly among pepper halves and top with mozzarella and panko. If peppers are too large to fill completely, fill 4 halves and roast 3-4 minutes longer. Remaining pepper is yours to use as you please!

    Roast again in hot oven until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly and peppers are fully tender, 9-11 minutes.
