Corn-Stuffed Butterfly Chops Recipe

Corn-Stuffed Butterfly Chops Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. In another bowl, lightly beat egg and milk; stir into corn mixture. Cut a pocket in each chop almost to the bone. Stuff about 1/4 cup corn mixture into each chop; secure with toothpicks.
