Stove Top Stuffed Pork Chops (#frugalFriday)

Stovetop Stuffed Pork Chops
I thought about a recipe the other day, that I have not thought about for a really long time. Stove Top Stuffed Pork Chops!
To me, it was very fancy, yet so simple, because it called for Stovetop Stuffing. And when I got this stuffing, it was on sale for $1 a box! So this can be a very frugal meal!
It is like taking regular pork chops
to a whole new level! Baked pork chops are delicious by themselves, but when you stuff them, they become a new meal entirely.

I have to admit, that when it comes to stuffing, I Love Stove Top Stuffing. And this is not a sponsored post. My family’s
passed down recipe for stuffing calls for rice, and soy sauce. And while our stuffing is delicious, I just can’t get enough of this boxed stuff.
But I promise you, that one day soon, I will find my own, from scratch stuffing recipe, that I like. Right now, this was just the easiest and most delicious
recipe for stuffed pork chops!
The flavors are wonderful, and the kids just gobble it up! And with all of the Christmas holiday preparations
this recipe, is pretty easy! Especially when you make ahead the sides! Just add a few veggie side dishes, and you are all set!

Just be sure to buy the really thick pork chops, and cut a slit on the side of the chops, to create a pocket.
Fill the pocket with about 3 tablespoons of stuffing, and be sure to fasten seam of pork chops, with a few toothpicks.
