My grandmother began making this recipe in the 1950s, and it remains a family favorite today. As simple as it seems, the corn dressing complements the pork beautifully.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 27, 2013

I liked the convenience of this recipe. However, I questioned the proportions of the ingredients: 1 cup soft bread crumbs for 4 people? Even diabetics are allowed 1/2 cup per person. Also, I don't see how this stuffing can fill an 11x7" pan, let alone a 13x9" pan which is what you will have to use if you have 4 pork chops, esp 1" , 7 oz ones. Instead, I used a pkg of pork stuffing mix and that worked pretty well; I didn't have any trouble with the ketchup and could even have increased it for a tangy addition. Didn't saute the onion or celery beforehand, but that's because I like them a little crispy, not wilted. Of course, nothing seems to fix the state of pork (and beef) in this country - even at 325 and still a little pinkish, the chops were dry and tough, but that is the fault of our pork industry, I think, not the recipe. If anyone has any tips for dealing with that, I'd really appreciate your sharing them.

I have really mixed feelings about this recipe. None of my family really enjoyed it much and the ketchup flavour was so strong. I knew I should add more spices or flavours but I like to make recipes according to directions the first time. The only change I did make was to fry the onion and celery ahead of time. I would not make it again AS IS, however i like the ease and idea of this so if there is a next time, I will omit the ketchup and make the dressing more traditional with a bit of chicken stock and butter and a lot of spices. That will improve it 10-fold.
