I wanted to share my special stuffed bell pepper recipe with you :) It looks like a lot of ingredients, but I promise it's easy and goes quick as you're throwing it all together! Hope you enjoy :)

3 large bell peppers
1 ½ lbs. ground sirloin
½ cup onion, chopped
1 small can tomato paste
1 tablespoon each of Worcestershire sauce and ketchup
1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 pouch Success Rice, cooked
2 tablespoons water
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Slice bell peppers in half long ways and rinse and remove seeds.  Make sure you pat them dry then drizzle just a little olive oil on one side of each pepper.  Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and set aside.   While the peppers are roasting in the oven, brown beef and onion together and then drain.  Place beef and onion back into the pan then add all remaining ingredients.  Stir well and let it simmer on low for 15-20 minutes.  Stuff each pepper generously with beef mixture then add sauce mixture and bread crumb topping and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Makes 6 stuffed halves.
1 small can tomato sauce
Yellow mustard
Brown sugar
Spoon a heaping tablespoon of tomato sauce over each pepper.   Next squirt just a few little dots of yellow mustard over the sauce.  Lastly, sprinkle just about ½ teaspoon brown sugar over mustard and sauce.  Top with breadcrumb/butter mixture and bake as directed above.
2 tablespoons butter
½ cup breadcrumbs
In a small sauce pan, melt butter then add breadcrumbs and stir with a fork until mixed well.
