  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.
  2. In a saucepan bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel onions and slice off the tops; boil for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender but not mushy. Drain, cool and remove the centers, leaving the shell intact. Chop onion centers and reserve 1/2 cup.
  3. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside, reserving drippings. Saute green pepper and 1/2 cup chopped onion in sausage drippings.
  4. In a large bowl combine green pepper, onion, sausage, egg, 1 cup cooked rice, cream cheese, oregano and parsley. Spoon mixture into onion shells and place in prepared dish. Combine melted butter and paprika; brush tops of onions.
  5. Cover and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Uncover, and bake an additional 5 minutes.

The stuffing is also good to make stuffed mushrooms

The recipe was really good and I liked the recipe.

It seemed like a lot of work, but maybe I'm lazy. Took the onions a lot longer to cook enough to be able to dig the center out. Had to use a grapefruit knife. Was rather blah in flavor. Won't b...

This recipe was nothing special. I thought it was a lot of work for just an ok dish. The stuffing mixture was good, but I thought the onions were really bland. I think I'll stick to stuffed g...
