  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 small onions chopped
  • 1 4 ounce package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 6 cloves garlic minced2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon half-and-half or to taste
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese divided
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup panko Japanese bread crumbs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 1-quart baking dish.
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook peppers in boiling water until slightly tender, about 3 minutes; drain and rinse with cold water until cooled.
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook ground turkey, onions, mushrooms, and garlic in the hot oil until turkey is completely browned; drain grease from the turkey mixture. Transfer drained turkey mixture to a bowl and return skillet to medium heat.
  • Melt butter in the skillet; add flour, salt, and black pepper. Stir until smooth. Stream milk and half-and-half into the flour mixture while stirring; bring to a boil. Cook and stir the milk mixture until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Return turkey mixture to the skillet; add tomatoes and 2 tablespoons Cheddar cheese. Cook and stir the turkey mixture until hot and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes; spoon into the bell pepper halves. Arrange stuffed pepper halves into the prepared baking dish; top with remaining Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, and panko. Cover dish with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in preheated oven until the peppers are tender and the filling is hot, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Switch oven to broil, remove foil, and cook peppers under the broiler until the panko is browned, about 5 minutes.
