Frankfurter Friday- Frankfurter Stuffed Green Peppers

I have seen many stuffed pepper recipes but none of them have used franks in the stuffing. It does have the rice that is often used in stuffed peppers. Also a little cheese topping improves almost anything, so I would sprinkle more cheese on top.

Frankfurter-Stuffed Green Peppers

6 large green peppers
1 onion, chopped
1/2 teaspoon instant minced garlic
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 pounds frankfurters, diced
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 cups cooked rice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Salt to taste
1 cup tomato juice
Cut stem ends off peppers and carefully remove the seeds and pith. Parboil 5 minutes. Saute onion and garlic in butter until onion is soft. Add frankfurters and cook 5 minutes, stirring. Blend in next 5 ingredients. Stuff peppers and arrange in greased baking dish. Pour tomato juice around them. Bake in 350 degree oven 30 minutes, or until tender, basting occasionally. If peppers dry out, pour more tomato juice over. Makes 6 servings.
