Steps

1. Chop the potatoes into large cubes, and soak in water for about 15 minutes. This is to remove the astringency.
2. Drain the water, cover with plastic wrap, microwave for 7 ~ 8 minutes, then mash roughly.
3. Add oil to a frying pan, and stir-fry the minced onion and ground pork.
4. When the colour of the ground meat has changed, add mashed potatoes, and mix well. Add the remaining seasonings, and season stronger than usual.
5. Chop 1 cm off from the top of the bell peppers, and remove the seeds. If it's wobbly, slice a small part off the bottom.
6. ※f the bell peppers are thick, they are hard to cook through, so microwave first!!
7. Stuff the filling from Step 4 into the bell peppers about 70% full.
8. Pour in the white sauce and cheese (and panko if you like) on top, then bake in a toaster oven for about 5 minutes.

Story Behind this Recipe

My friend gave me a lot of bell peppers. I wanted to make something other than a common stir-fry or marinade. I made a dish that I can serve to my guests.
