Reviews for Savory Stuffed Pork Chops
"With a little wine vinegar the stuffing is a good dip with crackers all by itself!!!!"
"Its a great stuffing for your porkchops when your tired of same old stuffing i added some cooked bavon and chopped pecans. My kiddo can not tolerate butter so i used.olive oil and light sourcream. It was great even my husband who is stuck on my mom has best stuffing i dont like box stuffing enjoyed deff a keeper"
"It's hard to find thick pork chops at 8 oz each so I use 4 bigger pork chops. We don't care for sage so we use Stovetop Pork Stuffing mix. I stuff the pork chops really full and still have some leftovers to put in a casserole dish! My husband doesn't even like spinach but doesn't want his pork chops prepared any other way!"
"Very easy to make and so yummy that I didn't need ketchup on my pork chops like I do with other recipes. :x"
"The stuffing was too squishy I thought, it was just ok, not something I'll make again."
"Awsome!!! I made 4 large chops and froze the remaining stuffing for another time. Hopefully it will be just as good!! My guests were impressed. Didn't change a thing."
"This turned out excellent! I made it for my family for Christmas dinner...something different. The whole family loved it!"
"Meals have been SO boring!! Found this and tried it and WOW!!! It was the most amazing dish I've made in a while. Made my own stuffing with bread crumbs in processor but, it was amazing!!! It will be a regular for me."
"I made these for some guests. They raved about them, one even said "wow they look just like the picture." They were awesome and I will be making these again!"
"This was delicious! It went together quickly and easily. The stuffing was excellent and I am planning on using a variation to stuff chicken breasts with it."
"YUMM-O! I added garlic, dried cranberries, and about 1/2 cup of apple juice. Everyone ate every last bite and raved. So easy and looked like I spent hours over a hot stove!"
"Fantastic stuffing! Tasted wonderful with the pork chops and I think it would be just as good stuffing chicken breasts or a pork roast. It would make an impressive dish for a special company dinner."
