Inspired by Foodnetwork’s Guy Fieri, I followed his recipe for Turkey & Quinoa Stuffed Peppers and thought why not enhance the mixture with Chicken Sausage with Spinach & Cheese? Yes, the sausage addition put this dish over-the-top on the flavor scale. 

Here is my photo of the Chicken Sausage with Spinach & Cheese:

Here are some more photos of the recipe process for my Stuffed Peppers. Included in the mixture is ground turkey, chicken sausage, quinoa, kale, garlic, chicken broth, red pepper flakes, Panko crumbs mixed with grated cheese.

Some ingredients for my Stuffed Peppers

Image

 

Heating up Chicken Sausage with spinach & cheese already in the sausage. As the cheese melts from the sausage, it flavors the fat from the sausage therefore no additional oil is needed to brown the ground turkey.

Adding garlic and red pepper flakes to the browning ground turkey.

Above is Quinoa and fresh, chopped Kale added to the browned ground turkey. Low-sodium chicken broth (or white wine) was added to the cooked ground turkey to add liquid to the cooking mixture.

Filled peppers are topped with a mixture of Panko crumbs & grated cheese, ready to be baked in the oven until brown on top.

Finished peppers above. A lot of mixture was left over for the three peppers I had in the refrigerator at the time. I put the leftover cooked mixture in a container to keep in the refrigerator. The quantity of mixture from the original recipe by Guy Fieri would have filled 4-6 peppers. My recipe with the added chicken sausage made the original recipe stretch to several more peppers. 

This recipe came together easily with organization of ingredients and cooking utensils. Prepping the ingredients before beginning the cooking process made the cooking process flow with very little stress.

The presentation of this meal-in-a-pepper is an excellent buffet item for an informal gathering of family and friends.
