Hash Brown Hot Dish Stuffed Bell Peppers

Beckerkorn 5

"Bell peppers stuffed with hashbrowns, ground beef, green beans, and cheese. My apartment-mate and I invented this recipe while drinking beer and 'reminiscing' about elementary-school cafeteria food. When we got around to trying it out, we were pleasantly surprised. Beats your old school cook's tater tot hot dish!"

  1. Cook the hashbrown patties according to package directions. Mash with a fork and set aside.
