Stuffed Green Peppers

Green peppers are at a peak in my garden. Here's a yummy recipe from my mom...

Stuffed Green Peppers

5 peppers
Cut off tops and remove seeds & pulp. (My kids gather to eat strips left over from the raw tops.) Cook the pepper "shells" in boiling water for 3-5 minutes. (Recipe says 5 minutes...but I want them barely cooked and thought that was a bit long.)

1/2 c. onion, chopped
2 T. celery, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 lb hamburger
Cook these ingredients together.

1 c. cooked rice
1, 8oz can tomato sauce
1 small can mushrooms, drained
1 T. Worchestershire sauce
1 1/2 t. Italian seasoning (I subbed with pizza seasoning & dh LOVED it)
1/4 t. sugar
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
Add this mixture to the hamburger mixture above. Stir til combined.

Fill peppers and place upright in baking dish. Cover only the bottom of the dish with boiling water. Bake 30-40 minutes until heated through.
