Since I already make my own stuffing from scratch, I started there.

Stuffed pork chops need a pocket cut into the meat for you to stuff the filling. The butcher in your grocery store can help you with this. All you have to do is ask. They would be glad to help you.

Stuffed pork chops are a great use of leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving. Having the stuffing already made makes this recipe super easy. You really can use any stuffing. But if you are needing a recipe, I have one here on the blog.

I am not really good at winging it when it comes to cooking. I have a hard time knowing what flavors go together. I found this website that helps me with that. It’s call FoodPairing. You choose your main food and then it gives a list of foods that pair with the flavor of the first food. I hopped onto the site and saw that almonds and apples pair well with pork. So I added those to my stuffing.

The flavors all went so well together. These pork chops turned out incredibly delicious. I love that I know what’s in them and they are as good as the store bought stuffed pork chops.
