Gefüllte Paprika

Happy Friday friends!
I am happy to report that my allergies are MUCH better! I am so very thankful! It was getting pretty frustrating that I was having such issues.
I am not always a fun of tons of rain (and I am sending prayers for all those who have been affected by flooding), but I am thankful the rain washed away the pollen!

Due to all the rain, I decided to pull out an old family recipe that comes from my German side.  I am linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit for an heirloom recipe themed week!
I was never a fan of peppers as a kid, and actually I did not even knew I like them (red, orange & yellow) till a few years ago.  And since I discovered that, I can never get enough peppers in my life!  I have tweaked the recipe my family used to make to a really simple version!

Gefüllte Paprika- Stuffed Peppers

  • 4 large organic peppers (best with more of a flat bottom), top cut off and cored
  • 1 lb organic ground turkey
  • 2 8oz cans of organic plain tomato sauce
  • Spices- Equal parts to taste- basil, rosemary, marjoram, thyme, himalayan salt, sage, oregano, black pepper
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese



  1. Preheat the oven to 350*
  2. Brown ground turkey with spices (and extra chopped red pepper if desired)
  3. Add sauce to the meat and simmer for 10 min
  4. Add in parmesan cheese
  5. Place peppers in a glass oven safe dish
  6. Scoop meat/sauce mixture into each pepper
  7. Bake for 30-40 min until bubbly and browning
  8. Enjoy!
