Really Yummy, Fast, and Simple Southern Boudain Stuffed Bell Peppers…..
Hey Yall!!!! How exciting it is to bring you guys these Really Yummy, Fast, and Simple Southern Boudain Stuffed Bell Peppers. They are so quick, easy, and fast that you won’t think twice about the trouble. I love cooking these type of meals especially when I am short on time. My days can run long, and I need to be able to whip something up that’s really yummy, and my crew loves a lot! This has been a very busy week at school this week from conferences, meetings, trainings, and kids too!
I love stuffed peppers, but there had to be something different that I could do to these peppers. How do you like you peppers stuffed? Choosing to reach back into my Southern roots, I decided to use boudain. This provided me with the rice, and the meat with the pepper as my veggie. Remember that peppers hardly have any calories whatsoever. Ok, on to the peppers, and my oldest Caleb helping me with assembly! I just think he is greedy, but is learning how to cook easy meals on the go.
We decided to use any boudain that was in the grocery store. If my mom and grandmother saw this store bought boudain they would kill me. My family believed in making sure that everything was homemade. They loved to take care of their families, but this chica is short on time in the evening. The items that you see pictured here is what was used in the recipe.
The color of bell pepper doesn’t really matter use what you have on hand. I use all colors, and I will also use what’s in the fridge.
Of course chop and gut all the heads off the peppers, and make sure to give them another good wash after this.
Make sure to rub down the bell peppers with olive oil to coat them. I have my helper stepping in to give me a hand. Momma is getting tired, but always love teaching too.
Boudain comes in a casing, but I always take it out of the casing to pull apart to put into my hollowed out peppers. Here is Caleb making sure to be very careful with cutting it out of the casing. He has been using a knife since he was 7. Many, many lessons of practice with me by his side.
Here he is crushing up Ritz crackers to put at the bottom of the peppers. It just makes these oh so yummy. (Any type of cracker you love works)…
As I stuffed these peppers I made sure to season them a tiny bit with the seasonings you see pictured. I also make sure that at the end of stuffing we topped them with a little butter too. Once they were ready to go in the pan, we put a little water in the bottom of the dish to steam them as they cooked.
Please make sure that before you cover them spray the inside of your foil with non-stick cooking spray, so that they won’t stick to the foil paper.
OMG!! These were so yummy, quick, and easy to throw together. I love everything about the ease of this dish, and how gathering helpers is okay too. I hope that you liked the recipe,a nd if you decide to make this please let me know. I would love to hear how they came out.
