Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers

Here is another great recipe courtesy of pinterest.com. It is one of the places that I find a ton of inspiration for recipes, decorating, you name it. It can also suck up hours of time so I suggest looking at it only when you have time to kill!

As you may or may not know Dr. Court is from New Jersey just outside of Philly. What is one of the things Philadelphia’s famous for…? Cheesesteaks, of course! If you’re reading this blog, then you’ve probably figured out that we don’t eat a lot of grain. We may have some occasionally but for the most part we avoid it. So, that means no cheesesteaks for us. Until now….this recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Stuffed Peppers means we can get the flavor of a cheesesteak without the bread! Genius! This recipe is so go the way it was I didn’t do anything different to it. This is exactly as I found it on Peace, Love and Low Carb via pinterest.com.

    Hi, I enjoy reading your recipes with great delight. I have a small problem though. I need more information regarding nutrition. My family always wants to know more. Serving size, Calories, Fat, Fiber, Protein, Sugar and Sodium.
