“This is one of my son’s favorites,” Vicky Dempsey says from Louisville, Mississippi. Buttered hash browns form a mouthwatering crust for yummy filling of sausage and cheese. It’s sure to please at breakfast, brunch or even lunch.
Being a widow who likes to cook big meals, I frequently invite family and friends for dinner. On busy days, I rely on this easy recipe, which I got from a dear friend. It's hearty and satisfying and always gets raves.

"A good friend made me these tender chops in a flavorful gravy for my birthday," recalls Meg Griesdorn of Murraysville, West Virginia. "I immediately asked for the recipe and have served them many times since. There are never leftovers," she reports.
I start preparing this entree the night before I plan to grill it. It's a fabulous marinade with a unique flavor, and is of the only ways our family eats pork chops. —Erica Svejda, Janesville, Wisconsin
"I recently began experimenting with pork and came up with this easy dish, which has turned out to be a favorite," writes Marilyn McGee of Tulsa, Oklahoma. "I like to vary it occasionally by using lemon-pepper or garlic-seasoned tenderloin for added flavor."
Meet the Cook: Since we raise hogs, pork's plentiful at our place. If my husband's able to identify cranberries in a dish, however, he won't eat it. So, the first time I made these meatballs, I was thrilled when he raved about them. Our children - 5 and 2 - also consider them a favorite. And I've had many people request the recipe. But I really knew I had a "winner" when my grandmother asked me for it!
