Step by step method

Step 1

First of all prepare the stuffing of peppers. In a large bowl put the chopped meat, the chopped bread (wet and squeeze it), the milk, the egg, the grated cheese, the sweet provola cut into small cubes, salt and pepper according to your tastes and a little chopped parsley. Mix all the ingredients with your hands until the mixture is well blended.

Step 2

Now take the peppers, wash them and cut them in half lengthwise. Eliminate the seeds and the internal white filaments, leaving the stalk up. Salt the inside of the peppers; this last operation, besides flavoring, will facilitate the cooking of the peppers.

Step 3

Fill the pepper halves with the filling, trying not to leave empty spaces. Put the peppers in a baking dish, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and sprinkle with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the peppers in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 45 minutes.

Step 4

Here are the baked stuffed peppers served on the table! I advise you to let them cool about ten minutes before enjoying them.
