Stuffed Banana Peppers in a Crockpot

Pin It
Mr. Cardigan loves these!!!  I make it in the fall when the peppers are plentiful in our area.  Love it when I can make something easy in a crockpot.

For Stuffed Banana Peppers you will need -

banana peppers
1 pkg. Italian sausage
marinara sauce

When selecting your banana peppers keep in mind that these will need to be stuffed.   Clean the banana peppers and slice off both ends and discard.  Scoop out the insides - making sure to get the seeds - discards this also.  Just open the package of Italian sausage and using a spoon begin stuffing the sausage into the pepper as best you can.  I like to pour about a half jar of sauce in the crockpot first to help prevent the peppers from sticking to the bottom.  Place the stuffed peppers in the crockpot.  Pour marinara sauce over the peppers (I usually use 2 jars total).

Cook all day on low - which I usually do for about 8-9 hours.

Here are the banana peppers after being cleaned --

Love these with mashed potatoes and a vegetable --

You know how everyone takes their own photo by stretching their arm and hoping they get their face and not the ceiling???  Lucy and I tried this --

Clearly we need more practice!!!!
