Baked Stuffed Pork Chops

My mom, Gloria, was a terrific home cook.  Her baked stuffed pork chops with cream of mushroom soup recipe has long been a favorite with our family, especially my sons.  

I didn't make it often over the years because it never seemed to turn out as tasty as Mom's always did.  One time when Mom made this dish for me I told her I just couldn't make my stuffed pork chops taste as good as hers always did.  As she recited the recipe I realized I consistently omitted two critical ingredients.  

There should have been applesauce in the stuffing and a little white wine in the sauce.  Mom had never told me about these secret ingredients. They make all the difference in the world! Do you think she didn't tell me on purpose?

This stuffed pork chops recipe is easy to make and the perfect comfort food for autumn and winter dinners. 

Five Reasons You'll Love These Stuffed Pork Chops

It's a make-ahead dish. You can prepare the dish a day ahead and then bake it the next day.  That makes this a great dish for you to prepare on the weekend for cooking early in the week.  It will take an hour to bake, so you'll want to plan ahead to allow for that.

Applesauce adds sweetness and moisture to the stuffing. If you have the time, make your own applesauce to add to the stuffing and then serve extra on the side with the pork chops. If you haven't made your own applesauce before, you should start.  Homemade applesauce is easy and so much tastier than jarred sauce.

White wine adds a little zip to the flavor. The part of this recipe that makes this dish special is the simple sauce made from the cream of mushroom soup mixed with a little white wine.  Use chardonnay or Pinot Grigio wine.

You don't need potatoes or rice.  You'll have plenty of flavorful stuffing to satisfy your family.

The resulting dish is flavorful and comforting. The pork chops will cook in this sauce making the chops tender and moist.  Spoon a little of the sauce over the chops before serving them for a little extra flavor.

Success Tips for Baked Stuffed Pork Chops 

How do you keep the pork chops from drying out?  There is plenty of added moisture in this recipe from the applesauce, the soup mix, and the wine.  Bake the chops covered tightly with foil and you be delighted with the result.

Can I cook the pork chops uncovered to get some crunch on the stuffing?  Yes, at your own risk.  I suggest removing the foil for the last 20 minutes of cooking time.

Can the wine be omitted?  Yes, but it adds an additional flavor you will miss.  

How long do baked stuffed pork chops need to cook?  You want the pork chops to be cooked through and the sauce to be bubbling.  The internal temperature of the pork chops should be 145 degrees F.
