Ingredients

  • 6 boneless center-cut loin pork chops at least 1-inch thick
  • 2 tbs olive oil

Stuffing:

  • 2 cups fresh soft breadcrumbs see NOTES
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbs chopped fresh parsley OR 1 tbsp dehydrated parsley
  • 4 tbs (2 oz) butter
  • 1-2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉
  • Cut a deep pocket in each chop.
  • Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a large heavy ovenproof skillet and saute the onion until they begin to get soft; about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the entire contents of the skillet (onions & butter) to the breadcrumb mixture. Toss until all the bread is coated with butter; stir in the cranberry sauce.
  • Stuff each chop with the stuffing (you may not use all the stuffing, but it can be frozen for future use). Secure pocket opening with toothpicks if desired.
  • Heat the olive oil in the same skillet used for the onions.
  • Brown chops well on each side, about 5 minutes each side.
  • Place the skillet with the chops in preheated oven. Bake for 20-30 minutes.

Notes

I use plain white bread--just tear it up and pulse a few times in a food processor. About 4 slices should yield approximately 2 cups of crumbs.
