Stuffed Peppers
From: Rani Merens

4 large or 6 smaller green peppers, seeded, stems removed
a head of cauliflower OR a lb of frozen, chopped fine
1/2 chopped onion
1 lb bulk sausage
1 egg
4 oz grated cheese (I used cheddar) - OPTIONAL
1/4 - 1/2 cup lowest-carb tomato sauce you can find
olive oil or bacon drippings
1 packet artificial sweetener
1 tsp. vinegar (I used balsamic, though cider is lower-carb and also
good)
1 clove garlic, crushed, or equivalent in garlic powder
2 tsp herbs of your choice (I used parsley)
salt and pepper and any seasonings you like, to taste (I like Tony
Crachere's creole seasoning in it)

Cook the onion and garlic in olive oil or bacon drippings. Cook and
crumble the sausage in the same pan. Add the cauliflower, cook
briefly. Season to taste.

Mix in 2 tbsp of the tomato sauce, most of the cheese (opt), and the
egg.
While the filling is cooking, trim the tops off the peppers and
remove the seeds and any gunk inside.

Fill the peppers with the mixture.

Mix the remaining tomato sauce with the artificial sweetener,
vinegar, and if you wish, some allspice or herbs or creole
seasoning.

Put them into the baking dish and spoon the sauce over the tops.
Top with remaining grated cheese, if desired.

Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on High for ten minutes or bake
in a 350 oven until the peppers are softened.
