Pork Chops with Corn Dressing
As a new bride, I came across the original version of this recipe in a newspaper. I changed it around some and tried it out on my groom. It became a family favorite—not to mention a great easy main course for unexpected company! With our children both grown, my husband's still my "guinea pig". I love to experiment with new dishes...family and friends say I never follow a recipe!

Very easy to prepare, but just didn't have the "wow" factor I was looking for. Not a bad recipe at all, but I would make a few changes next time I make it. The pork chops cooked perfectly - they were tender and moist, which is always good.
