Turn plain pork chops into something special with a cinnamon bread stuffing.

Ingredients

Pork Chops

4
pork rib or loin chops, 1 inch thick (about 2 1/2 lb)

Stuffing

2
slices cinnamon raisin bread, toasted, cut into cubes (about 1 cup)
1/2
cup chopped apple (1/2 medium)
1/2
cup chopped pecans
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon grated orange peel
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash pepper
3
tablespoons orange juice

Glaze

2
tablespoons sugar
1
tablespoon cornstarch
1

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. With sharp knife, make pocket in each pork chop by cutting into side of chop toward bone.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix stuffing ingredients. Stuff each pocket with 1/4 of stuffing mixture; place chops in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake uncovered 30 minutes.

Pork chops need to be at least 1 inch thick to cut a pocket in them for stuffing. If the chops are thicker, they may need to bake a bit longer.
