Peppers, sausage and cheese...could this recipe get any easier? Almost every time I make these stuffed peppers for friends who haven't had them before, they are skeptical to try them, but after their first bite they're hooked for life. These Hungarian Wax peppers are great for making stuffed peppers with because of their medium size, giving space for filling. These peppers are also great for all guests because of their range in temperature. When you go to your local grocery store, often times they'll have both Hot Hungarian Wax and Hungarian Wax which is great for those who don't like spicy food.

I got the inspiration for this post from the stuffed pepper recipe that I would beg my dad to make for me when I was younger (and still do).

This recipe is super easy and is great for any meal. I often make more peppers than I can eat so that I can save the leftovers in my refrigerator for the next day. Even though I have to admit the best time to eat these stuffed peppers is right after they come out of the oven, there's something about having a pepper straight from the refrigerator the next day that is almost as equally delicious. The juicy sausage in this recipe makes for a great breakfast to help start your day.

These stuffed peppers are also great as a main dish for a laid-back lunch as well as a side dish for dinner. When the peppers heat up, the outside shell becomes soft and melts together with the sausage while the cheese on top hardens for a nice crunchy top.

Although this recipe takes an hour and 20 minutes to make, this is the perfect amount of time to pop in a movie to watch while you wait for that final buzzer of the oven. This savory stuffed pepper recipe is perfect for small bites at a movie marathon with your friends, a tailgate with the boys, or a simple dinner at home with bae. These three simple ingredient come together to make something truly mouthwatering that with leave you wanting more after every bite.
