This recipe came about when I had both some left over cornbread and some nice thick porkchops. It is a winner in my books.

How to Make Cornbread Stuffed Pork Chops


  • 1Cut a slit through the center of the chops, down to the bone, to form a pocket. (Sometimes you can get butterfly porkchops which work well. Or have the butcher cut the pocket for you.)
  • 2Crumble cornbread roughly into a medium mixing bowl and set aside.
  • 3In a medium saute pan, melt the butter and add onion, celery, peppers, mushrooms and garlic. Saute til soft and lightly browned and most of the liquid is reduced. Add Parsley and herbs, stir and cook about 1 minute more.
  • 4Place the sauteed veggies in the bowl with the cornbread and mix together. You will need to add enough chicken broth or water to moisten. This depends on the amount of liquid in the veggies and the dryness of the cornbread.
  • 5Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 6Season the chops with salt and pepper inside and out. Place stuffing into the pockets. There will usually be some left over but stuff them pretty full. If you prefer, stuff lightly and then bake the remaining stuffing alongside the chops in a separate oiled casserole during the last 20-30 minutes of cooking time.
  • 7Place stuffed chops in a 9x13 baking dish. Place soup in a small bowl (or use the bowl you mixed the stuffing in) and add a few tablespoons of broth or water to thin it down and then spoon over the chops.
  • 8Bake 1 to 1 1/2 hrs or til tender, check after about an hour. Temp should be 160-165 inside the stuffing. Place the extra pan of stuffing in the oven when the chops start to feel tender.
  • 9Spoon some of the gravy over the chops and stuffing for serving and pass any extra gravy on the side.
