It’s great when you have a recipe that can lend itself to so many variations. Stuffing peppers is a prime example. Besides the fact that it is sort of fun to stuff peppers, the outcome is extremely delicious.
I decided to take the approach of a turkey burger with an Asian influence. The recipe itself is somewhat healthy! So dig in and enjoy!
