Great retro food from the 80s – This time there is no rice as a filling

Stuffed peppers are always delicious.

Stuffed peppers are served, for example, with a salad. Mari Moilanen

Each of us has surely eaten peppers stuffed with rice. But what does a potato taste like?

Answer to the question: Great.

These Mari Moilanen peppers stuffed with cheese and potatoes are really delicious. Even in Moilasen’s childhood, peppers were made with a rice-minced meat filling.

– The potato filling is great. I’ve never used potatoes before, but it was worth it. Add a little Greek yogurt, tasty cheese and garlic to it, Moilanen enthuses.

He reminds us that stuffed peppers are a good retro food, which are made very rarely.
