1 LB Glier’s Hot Goetta
6 Bell Peppers
1 White Onion
3 Cloves Garlic
1 Can of Crushed Tomatoes
1 Cup of Cooked Rice
2 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
2 Cups Italian Cheese Blend or Mozzarella
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the Goetta in a pan over medium-high heat, set aside on a paper towel-lined plate. Cook rice according to the instruction on the packaging. Set the cooked rice aside in a large bowl.
Cut the top off of the peppers, set-tops aside. Remove the seeds and membrane from the peppers. Cut the shape of the Jack-O-Lantern that you want for each pepper.
Dice the useable flesh from the tops of the peppers. Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook the diced onion and peppers in a pan over medium heat with oil or butter. Add the garlic once the onions start to caramelize. Cook for an additional minute, then add the cooked vegetables into the bowl with the rice. Add the Goetta, tomatoes, 1 cup of cheese, and the Italian seasoning to the bowl and stir thoroughly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Place the peppers into the cooking dish, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spoon the mixture into the peppers. Cover the stuffed peppers with the remaining cheese. Pour ½ of water into the bottom of the dish then cover with foil. Bake for 35 minutes, then remove the foil. Cook for another 15 minutes. If the cheese has not browned you can turn the broiler on for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve.
