  • What side dish or other foods would go good with stuffed peppers?

    I am making stuffed red peppers tomorrow.  Don't know what to have with them.  I am thinking I might make coleslaw, but I'm not good at making it creamy, other than adding more mayo or sour cream to it.

    Yes, mashed potatoes!  You need a starch to balance stuffed peppers.

    Have you ever tried

    Marzetti's Coleslaw Dressing?

    That's what I use, it is very creamy!

     What are you stuffing them with? 

    If they have meat and rice or some other carb then a big green salad and good bread would be great.

    I was thinking corn or creamed corn. I prefer just cut off and boiled corn. Salad  or sliced tomatoes with the crusty bread mentioned. Since it has rice you don't really need another carb unless you just want one (and who doesnt?)

    False
  • Re: What side dish or other foods would go good with stuffed peppers?

    DH doesn't like rice, so I use cooked orzo in the stuffing. Sometimes spagetti on the side.

    False

  • Re: What side dish or other foods would go good with stuffed peppers?

    My filling has ground beef, rice, and corn.  I'll either add a salad or my favorite side dish is a warm, chunky applesauce - similar to escalloped apples.

  • Re: What side dish or other foods would go good with stuffed peppers?
    Definitely mashed potatoes...and since I stuff mine with ground beef browned with onion and rice plus tomato sauce and american cheese slices either mixed in or as a topping, I think whole kernel corn is a natural with it.. Oh, it makes me hungry just thinking about it...on the menu this week!

  • Re: What side dish or other foods would go good with stuffed peppers?

     we like steamed broccoli and carrots and half a twice baked potato.... just a big salad...

    I sometimes do scalloped or augratin potatoes - I'll admit, the boxed kind.  You mentioned that you are "not good at making creamy coleslaw".    I'll post a recipe I've used many times since I found it in the "Quick Cooking" magazine.  Easy, creamy, and good.
