The stuffed peppers came to Hungary through the Turks, from where they became popular in Europe during the Habsburg period. At that time, the Hungarians only knew stuffed cabbage. After the emergence of peppers throughout Eastern Europe and the Middle East, their box-like shape was found ideal for stuffing. The cooks stuffed them with minced meat, grain, and other mixtures, boiled or stewed them. The Hungarians previously prepared peppers stuffed with sauerkraut. Peppers stuffed with cheese are particularly popular in Italy, Hungary, and the Balkans. In Romania and the Balkans, so-called Italian peppers (Cubanelle) are used for this dish. Stuffed peppers became one of the few pepper dishes adopted by most of the Ashkenazi community. Apparently, stuffed peppers made their way to the United States towards the end of the 19th century.
