Italian-Style Crockpot Stuffed Peppers

by Courtney on February 22, 2012

Remember a couple of weeks ago when I made those awesome stuffed peppers?

Well, I did promise you all a recipe…and I’m not one to break a promise!

These stuffed peppers are not only super easy to make, but they’re incredibly flavorful and delicious. Because you put the ground turkey in raw, the insides cook up very similar to what you’d find in a meatloaf. Definitely different from your usual stuffed pepper recipe, but hey…different is a good thing.

Pin It

I’d be willing to bet that these would be delicious topped with some mozzarella cheese, but I didn’t have any on hand when I made them. Next time, I think I’m gonna do just that.

Alright…so who’s ready to get that crockpot out now? Smile

Stuffed peppers are one of my favorites! I would have never thought to put them in the crockpot to cook them. I love that this is made with ground turkey and is slow cooked. I’m definitely going to try it. Thanks for posting the recipe :)

Ahh Courtney! You read my mind! I was stalking your site for this recipe yesterday and realized you hadn’t posted it yet, so I went with the original and made a few changes – similar to yours – & they are currently in my crock-pot right now! so excited for dinner!

Mmmmmm Love Stuffed Peppers! The crock pot is a good idea because I always forget to boil mine first so sometimes they aren’t as tender as I would like.

I love this recipe! I actually try to avoid crock-pot recipes that require you to cook beforehand. Isn’t the whole point to AVOID the “work”? Definitely adding this to my menu for next week!

Those look really good! I bet you could substitute the ground turkey for broken up tempeh and chicken broth with veggie broth for a vegetarian version, huh? I might have to try it… ;)

This is such a great twist to regular stuffed peppers…butternut squash is also yummy when stuffed (well even yummier than normal)!

I will definitely have to make this! My poor crockpot has been neglected for a while now. This will be a good way to make up for it!

Do the “older” crock pots work as well as the newer ones, or are they cooler during cooking? I ask because sometimes onion stay a bit crunchy in my crock pot and need to be on the bottom. Mine has 2 settings – what about newer ones? Any ideas?

25 Courtney April 23, 2013 at 7:38 pm

Hmm, not sure? Mine only has high, low, and warm settings, but I’ve never had any problems with it. I just always make sure to cook it long enough :)
