Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Coat a casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Cook ground sirloin and sausage in a skillet over medium-low heat until browned and crumbly, stirring often, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly. Mix in 3/4 the tomatoes, onion, butter, garlic, oregano, fennel seed, and seasoned pepper. Simmer over low heat until meat mixture comes together, about 20 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Fill bell peppers with meat mixture, alternating with layers of feta cheese and Parmesan cheese. Place stuffed bell peppers side-by-side in the prepared casserole dish; add remaining tomatoes around and under the peppers so they cook up and into the peppers. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder for fresh garlic.

Alternatively, you can cut peppers in half vertically and stuff each half, making serving easier and speeding baking time.
