I am trying to find new and healthy ways to use ground turkey. My family is tired of turkey burgers. I am hoping they will like this healthy turkey stuffed peppers recipe.

How to make stuffed bell peppers with ground turkey:
The star of this recipe is sun-dried tomatoes from Trader Joe’s. I love that these are packed in olive oil so they stay nice and soft.
Add ground turkey, egg, gluten free panko, scallions, cheese, and sun-dried tomatoes to a large bowl.
Can you make this stuffed peppers recipe with other meats?
You can use any ground meat you like in this stuffed pepper recipe. You can use ground beef, ground bison, ground pork, or ground chicken meat.
This stuffing is ready to go into the peppers.
Do you have to brown meat before stuffing the peppers?
For this recipe, you do not have to brown the meat before stuffing the peppers. In fact, the flavors all blend together much better if you cook the meat inside the bell peppers.
Do you have to blanch the peppers before baking?
I am all for easy. Blanching involved dropping the peppers into boiling water and that is an extra step that is not needed for this recipe.
