Fast & Easy Halloween Dinner Idea that can easily be made top-8 allergen-free: stuffed peppers - with jack-o-lantern faces!

  • Ingredients: 4 Orange Bell Peppers (I used 4 but there is no specific amount. Use as many as you need for your family.)

    * Cut the tops off, remove seeds and ribs, and use a small knife to cut your jack-o-lantern faces before you start. Don’t make the eyes/mouth too big! You don’t want all your yummy stuffing to fall out.

    1 lb uncased Italian sausage

    2 cups of cooked long-grain white rice

    1/4 cup of Tomato Sauce (optional)

    Shredded Cheese (optional)

    Salt, Pepper and Garlic seasoning (to taste)
  • Instructions: Halloween is a busy day. You pick you’re kids up from school. They’re excited. They’ve probably already been pre-sugared up at school, you’ve probably had your share of treats from the potluck at work. Halloween is one of those days parents want something hot and fast. I feel your pain! Instead of dialing your favorite pizza delivery spot, or pulling up to the drive-thru at McDonalds, try these stuffed peppers! They’re just like regular stuffed peppers, except you carve a cute (or scary) little face into them before you bake them :)

    This recipe is free from…..ALL of the top allergens! yayyyy (how’s that for a treat?)

    • Peanut/ Tree Nut Free
    • Egg Free
    • Gluten/ Wheat Free
    • Dairy Free
    • Soy Free
    • Fish/ Shellfish Free
    The good thing about this recipe, is that you can pretty much stuff these babies with whatever you want. You can add beans, chili, ground beef, chicken, onion, corn, breadcrumbs or zucchini. It’s totally up to you. If you can’t use cheese because of a milk allergy/intolerance, it’s okay! They’ll still be just as cute and just as delicious. I promise.
