Stuffed peppers are a classic family meal—and they're fun to eat, too. Instead of roasting the sweet peppers in the oven, use an air fryer to get them crisp-tender but not soggy.

  • 3 medium red bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 12 ounces ground turkey
  • ½ cup cooked brown rice
  • ¼ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup low-sodium marinara sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese (1 oz.)
  • ¼ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese (1 oz.)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Coat the basket of an air fryer with cooking spray. Cut tops off peppers and reserve. Seed the peppers and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey; cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in rice and panko; cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in marinara, parsley, pepper and Parmesan. Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared peppers.
  3. Place the peppers in the prepared air-fryer basket. Nestle the pepper tops in the bottom of the basket. Cook at 350°F until the peppers are tender, about 8 minutes. Top with mozzarella; cook until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes more.
