I've done a number of different variations, too. Adding different vegetables usually. Some recipes call for bread crumbs instead of rice. I prefer rice. Mom used to put the tops back on before cooking so that's the way I do it. She said it kept them from drying out. I'll have to try it without the tops to see if her theory was right.

Love stuffed cabbage, too!

I've never tried Hungarian Paprika. That would change up the flavor, for sure. Might have to look for it in the speciality section in the store because I haven't seen it in the regular spice aisle.

Buy peppers with a flat bottom that they can stand alone in the pot!

Burn some more onion cubes and bacon cubes in oil in a pot. When browned, put the filled peppers in the pot and add hot water until peppers are HALF covered with water ( not that water comes inside while cooking!) Add some beef broth and tomatoe puree. Let cook at half / medium heat for about 20 minutes. When peppers are tender, remove from pot and add a little bit of white wine ( i love wine in my dishes) and cream. Stir. let cook for a moment, ENJOY.

Recipe from GERMANY
they look yummy, but a little different from how I make them. First of all we usually stuff them with meat and rice (of course the onion etc) and I bake mine in the over, but I have done them in the micro a few times. I am considering having them this next week in fact...

That is the basic recipe, with or without the tops on and I have never heard of cheese on them....

I make them fairly often, in the crockpot. I don't top mine with cheese, nor do I put the tops back on. Since I overfill the peppers, the tops wouldn't fit back on anyway.

I cut the pepper from around the top stems and dice them, freeze, and add them to other dishes.

I chop the tops and add them to the meat mixture. I use a blend of beef, pork, and veal. Tomatoes, onions, garlic, rice, worchesterchire (sp?), salt, pepper, etc. I don't use a recipe tho. I can't tell when it's right.

I used to make stuffed peppers with meat, rice and swiss cheese. They were really good but DH started fussing about peppers talking back to him so I haven't made them in ages. I bet my girls would love them, especially the red or yellow ones.

My husband likes them with mashed potatoes, same as with meatloaf or cabbage rolls.

my daughter just chops the tops and puts the pieces back on, but not the entire top...

applesauce in stuffed green peppers seems very very strange to me :-)
