Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers You Can’t Live Without!

I love stuffed peppers. The original recipe is more ground beef and rice. It’s a quick and easy meal that I throw together often. This cheesesteak version combines all of our favorite elements of the stuffed peppers with a filling that is more akin to the classic street food of Philadelphia. 

How much does this recipe make? 

My recipe for cheesesteak stuffed peppers makes about 8 servings. This is an awesome meal to make and then have leftovers for lunches! Everything gets a chance to really soak up the flavor overnight in the fridge and then they are even better the second day. 

Can I make these ahead of time and freeze them? 

I’m not sure how the peppers would hold up once they’re baked, frozen, and then thawed out and reheated. This is not a recipe I would freeze and reheat. If you want to make these ahead of time they will keep nicely in the fridge during the week so you could prep this meal on Sunday and eat it for lunches or a quick dinner!
