Kelly's StoryOne of my husband's all-time favorites! I love to make it when I'm in a rush, or just plain tired and don't feel like fussing. So easy and so very good!! Hope you try it! :D
(Old photo by me)
1" thick boneless pork loin chops (if using thinner ones lessen baking time 5-10 minutes depending on thickness)
seasoning salt and pepper to taste
box stovetop pork or chicken stuffing mix
rounded tablespoon apple pie filling, finely chop apples
rounded tablespoons shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (21 oz.) can(s)
apple pie filling with cinnamon, add a little cinnamon if it doesn't have any or needs more
more coarse ground pepper
1Make stuffing according to pkg. directions, fold in 1 Tbl. apple pie filling and cheddar, set aside. Pour rest of apple pie filling onto bottom of 13x9 pan (greased.) Sprinkle with a little cinnamon if needed. In hot skillet, lightly brown pork chops (seasoned with seasoning salt and pepper) on both sides. Place pork chops on top of apples. Top each with a mound of stuffing. (I pack it a little to make it look nice, making a tall mound of it.)
Sprinkle lightly with a little coarse ground pepper.
Cover and bake at 350• for 40-45 minutes. Uncover and bake 5-10 minutes longer.
(*Porkchops ARE done when just barely light pink in center and juices run clear.)
**When serving, make sure you scoop with a large spatula, getting underneath the chop to get all the pie filling underneath.
