Have some leftovers? Why not stuff them into some peppers to make Meatloaf Stuffed Peppers!

I hate letting leftovers go to waste! This week, since I had an abundance of bell peppers in my fridge and leftover meatloaf, I decided to combine the two to make a brand new dish . Even though leftovers were used, I have to say that out of all the stuffed peppers I’ve ever made before these meatloaf stuffed peppers were the absolute BEST. Just goes to show that leftovers don’t have to be boring and can be reborn into a brand new dish.

All I did was combine some rice into my leftover meatloaf mixture and stuff that into some peppers. This super simple main dish and can be paired with any of your favourite sides. A really quick and easy way to make your leftovers into an exciting new dish.

A classic meatloaf that really hits the spot

I’m a huge fan of nostalgic foods and meatloaf is definitely one of them. Although, it’s funny because I personally never ate it as a kid (it’s just not Polish enough), but making this recipe still reminds me of childhood. I guess it’s from all the American references in most movies that does it for me.

This recipe tastes just like nostalgia and is such a great comforting Sunday meal. Pair it with whatever sides you like and you have yourself a delicious meal to share with friends and/or family.
