Hidden Liver Stuffed Peppers

Hidden Liver Stuffed Peppers

Two of my most favorite Paleo meatloaf recipes are BoarBaconlicious Meatloaf from Delightful Tastebuds and Egg-Free, Tomato-Free (Hidden Liver) Paleo Meatloaf from The Paleo Mom. I used both these recipes as an inspiration for a stuffing for bell peppers. For some reason, colored bell peppers […]
