Stuffed Jack-O-Lantern Recipe

Stuffed Jack-O-Lanterns

One of the most famous Halloween traditions is carving a pumpkin into a Jack-O-Lantern. This custom originated in Scotland and Ireland, where large turnips or other fruits and vegetables were carved into lanterns and placed along the roadside to light the way to the harvest festivals. The term Jack-O-Lantern has been handed down to us from an old Irish legend about the town drunkard, an ill-tempered man by the name of Jack.

What could be more witchy fun than edible Jack-O-Lanterns! You can follow this tasty recipe, or create your own stuffing mix using your favorite ingredients according to your diet.


6 bell peppers, any color

1 pound ground beef (we like using a vegetarian alternative)

1 egg

4 slices bread, cubed

1 small onion, chopped

1 small tomato, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup chili sauce

1/4 cup prepared yellow mustard

3 tbs Worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish.

Lightly mix together the ground beef, egg, bread cubes, onion, tomato, garlic, chili sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in a bowl.

Wash the peppers, and cut jack-o'-lantern faces into the peppers with a sharp paring knife, making triangle eyes and noses, and pointy-teeth smiles. Slice off the tops of the peppers, and scoop out the seeds and cores. Stuff the peppers lightly with the beef stuffing, and place them into the prepared baking dish so they lean against each other.

Bake in the preheated oven until the peppers are tender and the stuffing is cooked through and juicy, about 1 hour.
