Day TWO: Cabbage Roll Stuffed Peppers

Cabbage Roll Stuffed Peppers

When I made my One-Pot Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole, I ended up with double the amount of food as I was expecting. I knew that there was no point in freezing the leftovers for a future meal as frozen leftovers rarely get eaten in my house so I decided to use up the leftovers creatively and make stuffed peppers. What I thought was a budget dinner (the complete Cabbage Roll Casserole meal came in under $13) turned into a double duty meal. For both days, the total spend on ingredients was around $18, and there were even some leftovers for lunch on day three.

Day Two: Cabbage Roll Stuffed Peppers

This recipes serves 3-4, or 6 if using as a side-dish.


  • 1/2 of the One-Pot Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole recipe
  • 3 Bell Peppers (any colour)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar)


  • Cut your peppers in half, and clean the insides out and dry
  • Place into a baking dish (do not grease)
  • Stuff the peppers generously with the Lazy Cabbage Roll filling
  • Sprinkle peppers with cheese
  • Bake at 400˚ for about half an hour until peppers are tender and filling is heated through
  • Serve with your choice of sides – we had salad and baked beans

The cost for the original Lazy Cabbage Roll recipe was under $13. I used half of it for the peppers, so about $6.50. I used an additional $4.84 worth of ingredients for the peppers recipe which brings the total of tonight’s dinner to under $11.50.

  • 3 pack of tri-coloured peppers $1.97 (on sale at Walmart)
  • Baked Beans 87¢
  • $1 worth of cheddar and mozzarella
  • We used under $1 worth of Salad (I buy the big containers of Spring/Baby lettuces)
  • Salad dressing, on hand
