Cut the tops off two bell peppers and remove the hull and the ribs.

Roast the peppers at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, until they wilt and get a nice dark roasted skin.


Clean three large baking potatoes and trim them.

Simmer them over a medium high heat in salted water until they are tender and fall off a fork.


Whip the potatoes using an egg beater along with 1 cup of whole milk, 1/4 of a stick of unsalted butter and salt. I suggest you overly salt them for this recipe.


Place the peppers in a baking dish so they all stand up and stuff them.
