Stuffed peppers with meat and sausage

To begin, let's start by cutting the bread into cubes and soaking it in milk, pressing it carefully to absorb everything. Now let's think about the peppers, wash and dry them well. Remove the top and cut the seeds and white filaments into cubes. Cut off the upper cap and extract the internal filaments and seeds.

Let's prepare the filling: remove the sausage from the casing and break it into pieces in a bowl together with the minced meat - if you like that extra something you can use the spicy Calabrian black pig sausage. We squeeze the bread that was in the milk well and add it to the meat filling together with the grated provolone and mix everything with our hands. Now combine the two eggs, the chopped peppers, the salt, the pepper and the chopped parsley. We create a homogeneous dough by mixing with our hands.

Now take the peppers, place them inside a large baking dish and fill them to the edge with the minced meat, bread and sausage filling. Press and compact well with a spoon and sprinkle with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil on the surface. Now bake in a static oven at 180°C for around 45 minutes, so as to brown the top and cook the filling. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with grated Parmigiano Reggiano or insert a slice of bacon and return to the oven in grill mode for two minutes. We plate and add fresh basil or parsley and serve!
