Stuffed peppers is among one of my favorite dishes to make, especially when prepared with locally grown or home grown Jersey peppers.

As is the case with our garden, Jersey produce is still plentiful in many locations around the state, making now the perfect time to cook up this great meal either as a side dish or main course.

Stuffed peppers is also one of those meals you can have fun preparing with your kids, which I absolutely love to do. This recipe I used is my own and a lot of it is eyeballed, but I'll do my best to break down the measurements so you can try this in your kitchen as well.

Trust me, you're going to love it.
