  • 6 bell peppers
  • 1 medium white onion chopped
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 slice wheat bread
  • 3 tablespoons low-fat milk
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¾ cup cooked brown rice
  • 1.5 cups shredded cheddar and pepper jack cheese divided
  • ¾ cup Spaghetti sauce divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper


  • Cut off the tops of the peppers and remove the ribs and seeds from inside and discard. Set the cleaned peppers aside.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl mix the onions, garlic, and olive oil together. Place into the microwave and heat for 5 minutes on high. Be careful when you take this out of the microwave because the bowl will be hot. Set aside to cool for 3-5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl mash together the bread and milk until a paste forms. Then add in the ground beef, parmesan cheese, brown rice, ¾ cup shredded cheese, ¼ cup spaghetti sauce, and the onion and garlic mixture, salt, and pepper. Mix together until all of the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the ground beef.
  • Spread the remaining sauce onto the bottom of the slow cooker insert.
  • Stuff each pepper with the ground beef mixture and then place it into the slow cooker insert standing up on top of the sauce.
  • Put the lid on and set the slow cooker to cook on low 4-6 hours. The ground beef should be cooked thoroughly. My peppers cook fully at 6 hours.
  • With about 5 minutes left add the remaining shredded cheese to the peppers and place the lid back on. Serve after the cheese has melted.
