Stuffed Pork Chops with Apple Thyme Sauce

Stuffed Pork Chops with Apple Thyme Sauce

I first made this recipe or Stuffed Pork Chops with Apple Thyme Sauce a few years back after I received a complimentary copy of  Cuisine at Home in the mail. The family is a big fan of stuffing, so creating a little pocket in a chop and adding a simple mixture of diced bread, onion, celery and apples made for a well received entree. These stuffed pork chops made our menu at least once a year when the boys were in the house. Miss Katie is basically a vegetarian, though she does love the occasional hot dog. You can see that she’s her father’s daughter…but I digress.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, separated
  • 1 cup bread, diced small (about 2 slices)
