For Gretchen who asked (Green Pepper Recipe)

Stuffed Green Peppers (Mom’s version)

3-4 large green peppers
1 cup rice
1 medium onion
2-3 cloves of garlic (Mom used garlic powder sometimes)
1 package fresh mushrooms
Hamburger (I have no clue how much, I omit it)
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme

Stuffing
Cook 1 cup of rice.
Mix with tomato sauce.
Saute onions, garlic, mushrooms, and hamburger (or leave the meat out).
Add saute to rice mixture (or add rice to saute).
Add oregano, thyme and basil.

Assembling
Cut peppers in half, clean out seeds and the white part of ribs.

Stuff peppers with filling. Put about an inch of water into glass cooking pan. Cook at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes (check to see when peppers are cooked the way you like it, Mom didn’t tell me how long so I always guess and check them).

Cover with cheddar cheese, cook until melted.
