Are stuffed peppers something you think Betty Draper would have thrown together on the cook's night off? OK, they can be that-but get beyond the rice-ground beef-and-canned tomato soup Mad Men-era version, and kick it. A roasted pepper can cradle turkey sausage and smoked cheese, or shrimp and ricotta salata. It can overflow with chorizo or bulgur.
Onions, especially sweet ones such as Vidalia, make a terrific stuffed side dish, as in this recipe for mushrooms, wild rice, and hazelnuts. Served with a chilled aquavit, this might be a Sterling Cooper man's dream.
