I found this first “stuffed” recipe on Pinterest, of course.  Basically, it’s a pizza-stuffed mushroom.  Yes, please!

Pizza Stuffed Mushrooms
“Pinspired” by this recipe


  • Large button mushrooms, stemmed and cleaned with damp cloth
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • A few green olives, chopped
  • Turkey pepperoni, chopped
  • Pizza sauce, a couple spoonfulls


  1. Place mushroom caps, stem side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 400 degrees until mushrooms start sweating and getting soft.
  2. Meanwhile, mix cheese and egg together in a bowl.
  3. Remove mushrooms from oven and stuff with cheese mixture, a little pizza sauce, and toppings.
  4. Turn oven to broil and broil mushrooms until bubbly and browned.


This next “stuffed” recipe is another stuffed pepper.  I never follow a recipe for these, so this one sort of morphed into a taco-stuffed version.  These might be my favorite stuffed peppers to date.

Taco Stuffed Peppers


  • 3 bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • seasonings such as garlic powder and cajun seasoning
  • 1 package Taco flavored rice
  • Salsa, about 1/2 cup
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, about 1/2 – 3/4 cup


  1. Place peppers, cut side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet that’s been sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 375 until peppers start to soften and release some moisture, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the Taco rice according to package directions, and saute the hamburger with desired seasonings.
  3. Once the rice is done, stir the hamburger and salsa in with the rice.
  4. Fill peppers with rice mixture and top with cheese.  Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted and bubbly.
