Apple & Stuffing Pork Chops.

I've always liked the combination of pork and apple.  Breakfast sausage cooked with apples....pork chops served with apple sauce...and now this: pork chops cooked over a bed of apple-cinnamon pie filling topped with stuffing.  

The combination may alarm you, but I assure you there is no need to be alarmed.  Besides the great taste, the prep time for this dish is minimal and the oven time gives you the opportunity to get a few things done around the house.

Apple & Stuffing Pork Chops
(Adapted from Taste of Home 5-Ingredient Cookbook)

4-6 boneless pork chops
1 package stuffing mix (prepared according to package directions)
1 large can apple pie filling (if filling doesn't come with cinnamon, add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon)

Grease the bottom of a 9x13 pan.  Spread pie filling onto the bottom of the baking pan.  Place pork chops over the top of the pie filling.  Spoon stuffing over the top of each pork chop.  Cover and bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes (or until the pork reaches 160 degrees).

Yum!  I served this with garlic smashed potatoes and peas.

...and if you are sensing an apple theme...I did not plan for all of these apple dishes to pop up at the same time, but they have...and there is an least one more coming!
