Corn-Stuffed Butterfly Chops

 Corn-Stuffed Butterfly Chops
Corn stuffing is a delicious twist in this old family recipe from an aunt. I fix these chops for special meals with scalloped potatoes, coleslaw and pickled beets. My family and friends always compliment my cooking when I make them. -Marie Dragwa, Simpson, Pennsylvania
