Ingredients

  • 12 mini peppers
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 small onion — grated, with the juice
  • 1 egg white — large
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray. 

  2. In a bowl, combine the beef, seasoning, grated onion and egg white. Mix to combine.

  3. Cut each pepper in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Fill with the ground beef mixture, leaving the top flat.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until the peppers have softened and the beef is cooked through. Top with cheese. Bake for additional 3-4 minutes. Top with chopped parsley (optional). Serve.

Recipe Notes

Serving size - 2 peppers/4 halves.
More salt could be used in the ground beef to taste. Keep in mind that the addition of cheese on top of the peppers adds saltiness.
If you are not planning to use fresh onion, use 2 tsp onion powder instead of 1 small onion.
To make it easier, when you grate the onion, I suggest that you put it in the freezer for 15 minutes prior. This will make it firm and easy to grate.
