The Chew: Daphne Oz’s Stuffing Stuffed Peppers
Daphne Oz said the best way to repurpose some leftover stuffing in a new way is by making some stuffing stuffed peppers. She said no one wants to waste any food and making it look different will make it more appealing to everyone.
She said she recently did her dry run through Thanksgiving with her family, because they were trying new recipes, and she needed to learn how to make the new recipes correct. She now has some leftover stuffing for the stuffing stuffed peppers. Check out the recipe for the peppers below.
- 6 large Red or Green Bell Peppers
- 4 cups leftover Stuffing
- 2 cups leftover Pulled Turkey
- 2 cups leftover Gravy
- 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
- 1/4 cup Chives (chopped)
- 1/2 cup Gruyere (grated)
- Olive oil
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut the top 1/4-inch off of each bell pepper, removing the stem, seeds and ribs from inside the peppers. Take out everything that is white. These are all bitter tasting and will not go well with the stuffing
Drizzle a little olive oil in each pepper and season the inside with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss together the leftover stuffing, turkey and gravy. Spoon about a cups worth of the mixture into each pepper.
Place peppers in a greased baking dish and bake for 15-20 minutes. Make sure all the ingredients are the same temperature or the stuffing with not cook right, causing the peppers to burn and blacken.
Remove dish from the oven and top each pepper with a couple tablespoons of Gruyere. Or any other cheese you have leftover in the fridge
Turn the oven to broil. Broil the peppers for 2-3 minutes, or until the top is bubbly and golden.
Garnish with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkle of chives. (Optional)
This dish would even be considered free if you got leftovers from someone else’s Thanksgiving. But if you bought the ingredients at the store, it would still only come out to $1.16 per serving.
