October Week 3 Benner’s Stuffed Peppers

Benner’s Stuffed Peppers             

United States

This is a bird food recipe from Florida USA for large and small birds that visit your gardens.


  • 1 small green pepper
  • 2 ounces chopped chicken, cooked well done
  • 1/4 cup lima beans, peas or mixed vegetables
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots, cucumber skins, potato skins or a mixed combination
  • 1/4 cup bird food (whatever your bird eats daily/no large pieces)
  • 1/4 cup low sodium chicken gravy or tomato soup

How to make it!

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cut off the top off the pepper and clean out the seeds – creating a small “bowl.”
  3. In a bowl, mix the remaining ingredients well and spoon into the pepper halve.
  4. Place the pepper halves into a glass baking dish and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. This will help distribute flavours and soften the vegetables. Do not over-cook.
  5. Remove the peppers from oven and let cool before serving.
  6. Cut the pepper in to 1 centimetre slices from top to bottom. This will make it easier for your bird to pull the pepper apart and get to the food m
  7. Place the puffed pepper in bird food bowls and serve.
