Peachy Pork Chops
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 1 hour
- 1-1/2 cups finely chopped onion
- 1-1/2 cups finely chopped celery
- 1/3 cup butter, cubed
- 6 cups day-old bread, cubed
- 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (8-1/2 ounces) sliced peaches, drained and diced

- In a large skillet, saute onion and celery in butter until tender; transfer to a large bowl. Add the bread, poultry seasoning, sage and pepper. Fold in the peaches. Combine the eggs, water and parsley; add to bread mixture; toss to coat.
- Cut a large pocket in the side of each pork chop; spoon stuffing loosely into pockets. Tie with string to secure stuffing if necessary. Brush chops with oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper.

The pork chops were so juicy and tender. Great combination of flavors!

This has to be the worst recipe I have ever made from a A Taste of Home. The spices don't jell. Horrible taste.

My daughter raved about this recipe when I made it! Now that she has her own apt, I copied it for her to make herself. I did use the soft bread cubes available Nov thru Dec and increased the peaches to a 15-16 oz can. I drained the peach juice into a measuring cup to = 1 cup (add water if you need to) instead of using just plain water. Also, I like to brown the chops before cutting the pockets, so you don't have to worry about the stuffing falling out. Great recipe for a special meal.
