Toppings for Stuffed Peppers

Translated by
Stuffed peppers

We can make stuffed peppers with all kinds of filling - meat or veggie. The topping however, is a key part of the meal. There are many sauces, which you can pour over the peppers. Here are some of them:

You will need 1 cup of yoghurt and 1 egg to put in an appropriate container on the stove. After warming up the mixture, add 2 tablespoons of flour and stir vigorously. It is also a good idea to add 1-2 pinches of salt, as well as some ground black pepper.

Of course, you can simply blend the egg and yoghurt, without spices and even without heating them. It is enough to have taken out the products from the refrigerator, so that they can warm up to room temperature. Mix them, and once the peppers are ready - pour it over them. Toast, so that the topping becomes golden and turn off the heat.

You can also add 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the yoghurt - this will make the topping fluffier. Increase the amount of eggs used depending on the amount of peppers.


This yoghurt topping has many other variations - our next proposal is to melt a piece of butter in a pan and add 1 teaspoon of paprika.

During this time, whisk the yoghurt and eggs. Gradually pour the yoghurt-egg mixture to the paprika and whisk energetically. Once it comes to a boil, remove from the stove, add spices to taste and pour over the peppers.

Tomato sauce

You can also make the topping using milk. The estimated quantities are: 1 2/3 cups of milk, 2-3 eggs, 2 tbsp of flour, black pepper, salt. Whisk the eggs the regular way, then add the milk, and finally the flour and spices.

This particular topping is exceptionally suitable for toasted peppers that have not been filled with any meat or mince. Arrange the peppers, pour the topping on top, and then place everything to bake in the oven.

And now let us present to you the tomato topping - you will need 4 tomatoes, salt, 1 tsp of sugar, parsley and oil. Grate the tomatoes on a fine grater and remove the skins. Add the salt and sugar, oil and finely diced parsley - pour this over the peppers and bake. If you don't like parsley, you can use basil.

If you like to improvise, fry up a cube of butter and put in a few spoons of flour. After frying for a bit, pour in some of the sauce from the already cooked peppers and some spices of your choice. Finally, add a cup of yoghurt and some processed or smoked cheese.
