Stuffed Banana Peppers

24 banana peppers, washed, seeded and sliced in half lengthwise

Meat mixture:
3 pounds ground meat
3 pounds bulk Italian sausage
5 eggs
1 1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs or bread cubes
1 1/2 cups Romano cheese, plus extra to sprinkle
1 small diced onion
Garlic powder, to taste
Black pepper, to taste
Seasoned salt, to taste
Spaghetti sauce, see note

Mix the ground meat, sausage, eggs, bread crumbs, cheese and onion. Season with garlic, black pepper and seasoned salt to taste. Mix well again.

Fill banana peppers with meat mixture. Lay on a waxed paper- covered tray and cover with plastic wrap, place in freezer until frozen firm; transfer to freezer bags until ready to use.

Remove peppers from freezer and place evenly in a disposable aluminum casserole pan. Pour spaghetti sauce over peppers and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

Note: We cut the recipe in half and used 1 24-ounce jar of our favorite spaghetti sauce.
