Here is a recipe I found on FB that is sooo cute and Halloween/Samhain themed I wanted to share....


Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Bell Peppers

6 medium size bell peppers, any color
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork

3 slices diced bacon, uncooked
1 small onion, chopped
12 oz. tomato sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup cooked white rice or brown

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.
Combine the ground beef, ground pork, bacon, onion, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Mix in cooked rice.
Wash the peppers, and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into the peppers with a sharp paring knife, making triangle eyes and noses, and pointy-teeth smiles. Slice off the tops of the peppers, and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the peppers lightly with the stuffing mixture*, and place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.
Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy, about 1 hour.

*Peppers can be stuffed with your favorite stuffing recipe rather than recipe shown.
