If you're looking for an original dish to take to a Halloween party, or if you'd like to get your kids involved in the kitchen, these Jack-o-lantern stuffed bell peppers will do the trick. These keto-friendly peppers can be a filling meal on their own, or they pair nicely with a crisp side salad.

Prep Time15 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time40 mins
1

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

2

Carve the bell peppers just as you would a pumpkin--make a circular incision on top of the bell pepper and dig out the membranes using a spoon. With a small knife, make incisions to create the eyes, nose, and mouth of the Jack-o-lantern. Set the left over bell pepper trimmings aside.

3

Place the bell peppers in a baking dish and add 1 inch of water. Microwave on high for 1 minute and set aside.

4

Heat the oil in a large pan and add the ground beef and sausage. Season with salt and pepper. Using a spatula, break the meat into crumbles and cook through, about 7 minutes.

5

Add the onion, garlic, left over bell pepper trimmings, crushed red pepper, and Rao's marinara sauce and combine.

6

Scoop the filling into each bell pepper and sprinkle the Mozzarella cheese on top. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, remove, plate, and enjoy!
