Recipe for Stuffed Pork Chops


    Stuffed Pork Chops

    6 pork chops, 1 1/2 inches thick
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    1 1/2 cups toasted bread crumbs
    1/2 cup chopped unpeeled apple
    1/2 cup shredded sharp natural Cheddar cheese
    2 tablespoons light raisins
    2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
    2 tablespoons orange juice
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

    Have a pocket cut in each pork chop along the fat side. Salt and pepper the insides of the pockets.

    In a bowl toss the bread crumbs, apple, cheese and raisins together.

    In a separate bowl combine the melted butter, orange juice, salt and cinnamon, and pour the mixture over the bread crumb mixture. Mix gently. Lightly stuff the pork chops with the mixture. Place in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cover lightly with foil and bake for 15 minutes more.
