Baked Pork Chops with Apple Stuffing Recipe

Publisher Photo
Apples and pork chops make a delicious pairing. I like to make this stuffed pork chop in the Fall when the new crop of apples are out. It makes a hearty meal and is great when the weather turns a little brisk.—Mary Ann Lee, Clifton Park, New York
