Savory Stuffed Pork Chops
My mom, Gloria, is a terrific home-cook. Her baked pork chops recipe is a favorite with our family, especially my sons. I really haven't made it much over the years because it never seemed to turn out as tasty as Mom's. One evening, not too long ago, Mom made this for me and I commented that I just couldn't make it as good as her. "That's crazy," she said. "It's so easy." As she ran down the recipe I realized I consistently omitted two critical ingredients. There should have been applesauce in the stuffing and the white wine in the sauce. Mom had never told me about these secret ingredients. They make all the difference in the world!
Gloria's Baked Pork Chops with StuffingThis recipe is easy to make and a perfect comfort food for autumn and winter dinners. With another blizzard blowing through the Northeast today I'm making it for dinner tonight and thought I would share it with you. I hope you'll give it a try.
