So, you’ve made one wonderful meal…but, you’ve still got half of an unused pound of ground beef that needs to be cooked. This dish is a great way to use up your leftovers. You can use this recipe for a lunch, or even meal prep so you don’t have to cook dinner the next day.

The second recipe is for meatloaf stuffed peppers, which is a tasty comfort food. This recipe takes a little over thirty minutes to assemble and cook. Trust me, it’s worth the wait and tastes out of this world. It makes for a great dinner for two, or is great the next day for lunch If you’re not using an air fryer, all of my recipes can also be made on a sheet pan in the oven.

    • To be honest, I didn’t intend to cut them in half. I stepped away, and let them cook too long, so they weren’t exactly pretty for the picture. They tasted good though. My original idea was to just cut the top off, and have them stuffed that way.
