Jen's Stuffed Peppers

"I know this recipe is probably similar to a lot of others, but I didn't use a recipe, just got some advice from my mom, and added a couple of my own ingredients"


4 large green peppers, tops cut off and seeded
2 pounds of ground beef (or 1 lb beef and 1 lb ground sausage)
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup plus 1 cup ketchup (divided
1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 29 oz can tomato sauce
3/4 cup italian flavored breadcrumbs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Put meat, egg, 1/4 cup ketchup, worchestershire sauce, pepper, garlic and breadcrumbs into mixing bowl and mix with hands. Pack into green peppers until heaping full. If you have leftover meat, form into meatballs. Spray roasting pan with cooking spray, place peppers (and extra meat if needed) in pan. In medium bowl mix together tomato sauce and 1 cup ketchup. Pour over peppers and into bottom of pan. Bake covered for two hours.

Serves 4
