FunSized Food

For this week's In The Kitchen With FunSized I made stuffed bell peppers for the first time and it was such a success!

I don't have a recipe to share with you because I made this one up on my own.

What you'll need is:

- 1 Package of Ground Turkey Meat
- Green and/or Red Peppers (number depends on how many people you are serving)
- 1 Yellow Onion
- Fresh Baby Spinach
- Craisins
- Balsamic Vinegar
- Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
- Olive Oil
- Salt
- Pepper

The first thing you want to do is place the ground turkey meat in a stove-top pan with a little bit of olive oil in it. Sprinkle some salt and pepper onto the meat as it starts to cook. Medium to light heat is good. While it is cooking drizzle some of balsamic vinegar on the meat and continue to mix. As the meat is on the stove you want to set your oven to about 350 degrees.

While the meat is cooking cut up some onion, I did about two slices and then cut it into small pieces, add that into the ground turkey meat on the stove. Along with that, add in some spinach. Spinach shrinks when you cook it so you definitely want to add plenty into the mixture.

The last ingredient to add is some craisins! If you'd like, depending on how much you enjoy balsamic vinegar, drizzle it into the mixture once last time and mix it around so the craisins get some of the flavor as well.

As the mixture is cooking, you should cut and prepare the bell peppers. I used one green and one red pepper and I cut them in half. I placed them in a glass baking dish. It is important that you put a small layer of water on the bottom of the dish so that the peppers don't burn when they are in the oven.

At this point, the meat mixture should be full cooked, your oven is preheated and it is time to add the meat mixture into the pepper. Use a spoon and be careful and really push the mixture deep into the pepper.

Once the meat is stuffed into the bell peppers, the last step is place the mozzarella cheese on top of the peppers. Now that it's all done, time to go into the oven to bake until the cheese is golden!

If you noticed while sharing my recipe with you, I did not give you any measurements... well, that's because I didn't use any. I just "eye-balled" it! It really depends upon your personal preference. Cooking is about being creative and having fun and that's all I was doing and I'm sure you can do the same thing!

It was absolutely delicious, the balsamic vinegar really added a nice flavor to the peppers and meat. This is definitely a recipe I will use again.
