My World Famous Greek Stuffed Sweet peppers

This is a pretty easy dish to make. I've made this 20 times or so and it's always a hit!

1 LB Ground lamb
Sweet red peppers
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 Egg
1 tsp Olive oil
1/2 Cup Bread crumbs, I used panko
1 Cup Feta cheese, crumbled
1 tsp Greek Oregano, www.penzeys.com
1 tsp Basil
Salt, pinch
Pepper, pinch

In a medium sized bowl mix everything but the sweet peppers together. Do not over mix this mixture... Once you have a good mix cover and put in the fridge for an hour - this will make the stuffing go a lot easier if you ask me. While your mixture is cooling off prep the peppers - start by cutting off the root end and cleaning out all the seeds. Once this is done wash the peppers in cold water and pat them dry. Take the mixture out of the fridge and using your hands stuff the peppers full. I like to cut off the bottom tip of the peppers just in case there is mega expansion that happens when baking. Put in a baking dish and drizzle a little olive oil over the top of the peppers. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for about an hour. Serve with rice, pasta etc... Eat & Enjoy!

Happy Cooking & Eating!
