    ok, I'm posting this for a couple of reasons... 1. I think someone here may like this dish. 2. I'm terribly forgetful and want it written down so I can duplicate it myself!

    Ingredients

    Several good sized red bell peppers
    1lb ground beef
    1lb country style sausage (mild)
    1 cup white rice cooked
    1/2 medium red onion
    I packet onion soup mix
    1 pint beef broth
    1 small can mushrooms
    2 ounces bourbon
    1 1/2 cup milk
    1/2 stick butter
    2 tbs flour

    Cut onion in half, slice off two thin slices and set to one side. Chop remainder into fine pieces.
    Cut tops off peppers, remove stems and seeds and webs. Place in casserole dish. Chop the tops into fine pieces.
    Put ground beef, sausage, rice, chopped onion and chopped pepper bits in mixing bowl, blend well.
    Stuff peppers full of meat mixture, put in oven at 350, for about an hour.
    Tune into fav 45 minute TV show, put bourbon in glass and relax for a while.
    When the show is over the peppers should be getting close, so time to start the gravy. Melt butter in skillet, add the sliced onion and sauté til transparent. Add flour and stir with whisk until smooth, let cook about two minutes. Add broth and milk and stir until blended well, toss in the mushrooms, add the onion soup mix, stirring continuously but gently until boiling. Allow to boil a couple minutes at least, until you have gravy. Your peppers should be done by now, so turn off stove, drench a pepper in gravy and dig in!

    I think I've stated somewhere on these forums that I like to follow a recipe as written the first time. In this case though, do you think I could substitute a glass of wine for the bourbon and a book for the tv without affecting the outcome too much? :)

    I'm thinking that substitution is prolly ok with most of my recipes. :)
