Stuffed Green Peppers – Low Carb

NOTES:

  • I whipped these up with stuff I found in the refrigerator and they were a hit!  Dianne said, “I would eat this again tomoorw night!!!  Yummm…”
  • Serving size = 2 Green Peppers per person (if main dish).
  • This recipe is sized for a single Green Pepper.  Mulitply it by the number of peppers you are making.
  • These have virtually no carbs because we replace rice and other fillers with Cauliflower Pearls.
  • You can mix it up and create pizza style, taco style, barbecue style, etc.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Large Green Pepper
  • 1/3 Cup Cauliflower Pearls
  • 1/3 Cup cooked breakfast sausage (I have also used taco meat and pulled pork)

  • 1/6 Cup Grated Cheese (I used Mexican 3 cheese mix)
  • black olives (optional)
