Keto Stuffed Peppers
This week we bring you another super simple traditional dish that we’ve Ketofied. This week we present: Keto Stuffed Peppers. They are super simple, delicious and another recipe that the whole family will enjoy. Of course Stuffed Peppers aren’t a new dish, I used to make these before the Keto diet, except mine would be filled with meat tomato sauce and probably either white rice, quinoa or maybe even corn. Most of those filler are higher and carbs so they aren’t good for a keto version of the dish.
We used a combination of two meats. Blending Italian Sausage with 80/20 ground beef. For our recipe we are counting a serving size as a 1/2 of pepper.

Keto Stuffed Peppers
- 1 lb Ground Italian Sausage
- 1 lb Ground Beef 80/20
- 1/8 cup chopped onion
- 1/8 cup chopped bell peppers Just finely chopped up the tops of peppers
- 5 Medium Bell Peppers
- 1 Can Hunts Garlic and Herb Pasta Sauce Or any brand of very low carb tomato sauce
- 1 cup Italian Cheese Blend (shredded)
- 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese (shredded)
- Garlic Powder, Italian Blend Seasoning, or other seasonings of your choice
Lets Prepare our Peppers
Cut off the tops of your Bell Peppers and remove the seeds
Place your cleaned Bell Peppers in a casserole dish or a steamer dish. Add a little water - don't cover them, just enough to be able to steam them when you add to microwave.
Cover your peppers tightly with plastic if you are using a casserole dish; or seal in steamer dish.
Steam in Microwave for 5 minutes! Remove when done.
***BE CAREFUL WHEN OPENING THE CONTAINER OR REMOVING THE PLASTIC THE STEAM WILL BE HOT!!!**
Set aside your peppers for stuffing
How to Prepare Your Stuffing
Cook your ground sausage and ground beef. Using a spoon break/chop the meat into very fine pieces.
Add in your finely chopped onions and bell peppers - incorporate well and let simmer
Add 1 Can of the lowest carb pasta sauce you can find and afford (we used the Hunts Garlic and Herb)
Let your meat and ingredients simmer for 5 - 10 minutes *make sure that you have throughly cooked it.
Lets Stuff Our Peppers
Optional Step: We like to set our peppers on a layer of meat at the bottom of the casserole dish - this is totally optional.
Begin stuffing each pepper.
Stand and place each pepper in your casserole dish (the first one will be the toughest to get to stand up)
Pre-Heat Over to 375 Degrees
Generously cover your peppers with your Italian and Mozzarella cheese
Bake for 30 minutes or until done
Remove from stove and let cool for 15 - 20 minutes
Serve and enjoy!
