My family loves my ham loaf, so I decided to make the ham loaf mixture into patties and grill them—it was an instant hit. Adding the arugula gives these burgers a peppery bite and honey mustard dressing adds just the right sweet and sour flavor. —Susan Bickta, Kutztown, Pennsylvania
This is one of the best pork recipes I've ever tried. My family looks forward to this roast for dinner, and guests always want the recipe. The flavorful rub and a glaze sparked with orange juice are also outstanding on pork chops. —Lynnette Miete, Alna, Maine
Apple, raisins and spices give this tasty sausage-rice casserole a taste of autumn. We enjoy it with a green salad on a cold fall day. It would be a nice potluck dish, too—just double the recipe if needed.
This old-fashioned mock chicken dish, actually made of tender perfectly seasoned pork, is one that my mom relied on often during 55 years of marriage. The delicious gravy is so good over mashed potatoes.

Meet the Cook: Many pork recipes were too spicy for me, so I decided to try this sweeter alternative. That was 18 years ago, and it became a family favorite. It tastes great the day after in a cold sandwich, too.
Today, our two daughters make this roast often. We also have eight grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren.

Mom would prepare this delectable main dish for our family, friends and customers at the three restaurants she and Dad owned. The herb rub and vegetables give it a remarkable flavor. —Sandi Pichon, Memphis, Tennessee
"My sister gave me the recipe for this easy five-ingredient marinade," writes Bernice Germann of Napoleon, Ohio. "It keeps the meat so moist and tasty...now it's the only way my husband wants his pork chops prepared."
