Turkey Stuffed Roasted Peppers

Turkey Stuffed Roasted Peppers

I used to make this recipe all the time but it hasn’t come back into my life for a few years now.

I was so happy with how this turned out and plan on making it a weekly staple now.  It’s super easy and makes 4 peppers which is enough to feed 4 people.
