Pork chops make a delicious base for any meal. When it comes to the sides you serve them with, the possibilities are endless, but if you are looking for a hearty comforting meal, a side of stuffing can’t be beaten.

In this recipe, we take the stuffing to the next level with an apple cornbread variety that will make the perfect complement for your pork. Read on to find out how it’s done.

Apple Cornbread Stuffing

The pork chops may be the star of this dish, but can we talk about the stuffing for a minute?

To make the stuffing, start by combining 6 ounces of cornbread stuffing mix with 14 ½ ounces of chicken broth, 1 small apple peeled and cored and 1 1/3 cups of French-fried onions.

This makes a great base for the pork giving it a hearty element and a taste that is tangy and sweet.

Apple and apple products are often used to enhance the taste of pork and the onions give it a bit of a kick. Mix this with the rich texture of the potato-y stuffing and there is no question that this is a side that elevates the dish.

To complete the dish, once you are done with the stuffing mixture, spoon it into the bottom of a greased 2-quart baking dish.

Then arrange your four pork chops on top of the mixture.

In a small dish, combine 1 tbsp. honey Dijon mustard with ½ cup peach preserves. Spread evenly over the pork chops. This will enhance the fruity, tangy taste even further.

Finally, bake in an oven preheated to 375 for 40 minutes or until the meat is no longer pink in the center.

Then get ready to serve a delicious dish your family is sure to love.

Stuffing Topped Pork Chops

To make this recipe, start by preparing 1 (6 oz.) package of pork chops according to package directions.

Season pork chops with salt pepper and onion powder.

Heat oil in a large skillet and brown pork chops on both sides.

Stuffed Pork Chops

To make this recipe, start by cutting into the chops to create a pocket. You should cut them in half almost to the bone.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in the skillet and sear chops on both sides.

Remove pork chops and put them on a plate.

Then make the stuffing by melting ¾ cup butter and combining with ½ cup chopped celery and ½ cup diced onion. Sauté until tender and combine with 7 cups dry bread cubes. Mix well.

Stuff ½ to ¾ cup of the stuffing into each chop so that it sticks out a little.
