This is really easier than it looks when you use packaged stuffing mix. This is special enough for company, but easy enough to do on a weeknight. What you are seeing in my picture is stuffed pork chop with scalloped potatoes and buttered maple syrup baked acorn squash.

These stuffed pork chops are a fast and easy way to make a big splash at dinnertime! Add a rub of your choosing to the meat (or simple salt & pepper) for added flavor. Even with just salt and pepper, it tastes great. The pork chops are so tender and juicy. Using store-bought stuffing makes this a snap to prepare and adds extra flavor to the meat.
