Serves: 6 

  • 500g mince
  • 1 egg
  • 4 slices of wholemeal bread, cubed
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1/2 cup pureed tomatoes/passata
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed or finely diced

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour25min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 20cm square (approx) baking dish.
  2. Lightly mix together the mince, egg, bread, onion, tomatoes, garlic, chili sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
  3. Wash the capsicums and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into one side of them with a sharp paring knife, making triangle eyes and noses and pointy-teeth smiles.
  4. Slice off the tops and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the capsicums lightly with the beef stuffing then place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until they are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy, about 1 hour.
