Stuffed Pork Chops
A while ago, my boyfriend requested stuffed chops with a different kind of filling. I came up with this version, which stems from a recipe for stuffed mushrooms. He raved about them for days.
4 ServingsPrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour

- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

- 4 bone-in pork loin chops (1 to 1-1/2 inches thick and 7 ounces each)

- celery in butter until vegetables are tender. Add the tomato,
- marjoram, garlic salt and pepper; cook and stir for 5 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and stir in bread cubes.

- into pockets. Place chops in an ungreased shallow baking pan. Bake,
