Yield: 4 peppers

Ingredients

4 peppers (fairly big and when choosing them make sure they have a good "base" and can "stand up")

Filling

2 cups of uncooked rice
1 tbsp butter ( to cook the rice with)
250 to 300 grs (8 - 10 oz pack) cream cheese
11/2 tbsp parsley (fresh or dried). I used dried as did not have fresh
1/2 tbsp garlic powder
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

White sauce to cover

1 1/2 Tbsp butter
2 1/2 Tbsp All Purpose flour
1 1/4 cups Milk
Salt and pepper
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Parmesan cheese to sprinkle

Instructions

1. Cook 2 cups of rice with a little the butter. I used my steamer to make the rice, but you can cook it what ever way you like.

2. While rice is cooking, cut the top of the peppers and clean the inside ( empty them)

4. Turn oven on to 350F

5. Fill the peppers with the rice pressing in so they are well stuffed. Place them on a oven tray and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Make a white sauce:

1. In a small saucepan melt the butter over low heat. Use a wooden spoon. When melted add the flour and blend quick. It will become a creamy consistency in seconds and then start adding milk slowly in steps and stirring constantly at the same time while it thickens and remains smooth.
The consistency will depend on how much milk you add. For this you want it runny enough to " run" on the stuffed peppers but thick enough so it holds shape.
At the end mix the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste ( do not burn your tongue when testing the sauce!)

2. After 1 1/2 hours is up, remove the peppers from the oven and pour the white sauce on the peppers, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and send them back to the oven for about 15 minutes.
You can chose, at the end, to place them for a few minutes under the broil in the oven to add a touch of crunch to the tops ( I did that)
Let them rest 5 minutes before serving,....
Enjoy!
