Wild Rice and Sausage Stuffed Peppers

I love wild rice. These Wild Rice and Sausage Stuffed Peppers are a little bit of work, but with a huge flavour payoff. Great for make-head meals, too!

Equipment

8 inch square glass dish

Ingredients

  • 4 green bell peppers*
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms of choice We use Baby Bella
  • 3 garlic cloves pressed
  • 12-16 oz sausage chub
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach ripped up
  • 2 cups cooked wild rice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped sage
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup chicken stock or broth

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Carefully slice the tops off each of the bell pepper, scoops seeds out and discard. Arrange seeded peppers in a small baking pan – I use an 8 x 8″ square brownie pan.
  • Saute onion, mushrooms, and garlic until vegetables are soft.
  • Add sausage meat, continue continue cooking – breaking up sausage into small bits – until sausage meat is browned.
  • Add spinach, cooking until spinach is well wilted. Stir in wild rice and sage, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Stuff filling into peppers, arrange any extra filing in between peppers. Pour chicken broth over peppers.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes, serve hot!

Notes

* We like our stuffed peppers warm but crispy. For softer stuffed peppers, cook seeded peppers in boiling water for about 5 minutes, and drain well before stuffing.
