Stuffed Peppers

My mom actually requests that I make this. If that isn't a compliment, I don't know what is!

Adapted from the Joy of Cooking
Serves 4
Bake 10-15 minutes @ 350F

2 peppers, green or red (I prefer red.)
1/3 cp bulgur wheat
2/3 cp boiling water
1/4 - 1/2 lb hamburger
1 T oil
3 T minced onion
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika, at least
2 T Worcestershire sauce, at least

Cut peppers in half long-ways (so that they are like boats) and clean them out. Put them in boiling water (parboil them) and let them cook for about 8-10 minutes. Remove with tongs and put them in cold water to stop them cooking any further.

While the peppers are cooking, put the bulgur into the boiling water and cover. Cook on low for about 10 minutes, or till done (not crunchy). Remove from heat to cool a bit.

Brown the hamburger with the onion. Set aside to cool a bit.

Mix all the filling ingredients together except for the eggs. Taste and adjust seasonings. Add egg and mix. Place pepper cases in greased baking pan and fill them. If there is any filling left over, just put it in the pan around the peppers.

Bake. Let cool a few minutes before serving.
