Method Prep:25min › Cook:1hr › Ready in:1hr25min
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease an 20x20cm or similar sized baking dish.
Lightly mix together the minced beef, egg, bread cubes, onion, tomato, garlic, chilli sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Wash the peppers, and cut Jack-O-lantern faces into the peppers with a sharp paring knife, making triangle eyes and noses and pointy-teeth smiles. Slice off the tops of the peppers and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the peppers lightly with the beef stuffing and place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.
Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy, about 1 hour.
This was a great recipe to have on a week night as it was easy to make and very tasty. I poked holes in the bottom of the peppers with a fork after they were cooked to drain out the excess liquid and keep the peppers from getting soggy. - 15 Jul 2011
