stuffed peppers

5 or 6 small to medium bell peppers (or large peppers cut in half)
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs
1/4 cup uncooked rice
1  8 ounce can tomato sauce
1  14 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 pound meatloaf mix (combination of beef, pork, and veal)
salt and pepper

Mix the meat, eggs, rice, 1/2 the onion, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 the garlic, 1/3 can tomato sauce, mix thoroughly
fill the peppers

In a large pot cook the rest of the onion until translucent in oil
add the rest of the garlic
add diced tomatoes
add the remaining tomato sauce
salt and pepper to taste
place filled peppers into the pot
bring to boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook covered over low heat for 40 minutes

These can also be cooked in a pressure cooker for 20 minutes

Freezes well

1 pepper = 10 carbs

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
