I have the making stuffed pork chops for years. It was around 30 years ago when I asked a co-worker how she made them. She just said, "make your favorite stuffing and add onion soup." That is what I did. I also made it my way by adding cream of mushroom soup mixed with the onion soup. I added onions and made the stuffing my own way. This dish helped win my husband over. Lol. He was impressed. That is a little story he tells people. I make a few versions of this dish. This is the easiest of them all. Enjoy!
