I've known with certainty that pork chops and apples belong together since that episode of The Brady Bunch. Peter Brady, while trying to emulate Humphrey Bogart, says "We're having pork chaps and apple shass for dinner." It was one of those, "Peter's trying to find himself" episodes that epitomizes what that show stood for. A wholesome life lesson about not pretending to be someone else. Just figure out who you are. Nevertheless, pork chops and apples were mated for life in my brain because of that episode. And pork chops with stove top stuffing, caramelized onions and apples takes the concept to the next level.
Pork chops with Stove Top stuffing is total comfort food. You may recall, I made Stove Top stuffing for the first time with my Stove Top Stuffing Chicken Rolls. I must say, this stuffing kinda rocks! It's instant, but somehow so incredibly flavorful and delicious. I knew I wanted to incorporate it into another recipe so here we are! Instead of "pork chaps and apple shass" we're having pork chops with stuffing, caramelized onions and apples.
Baked Pork Chops with stuffing is a cheap dinner option
Pork chops are still pretty cheap right now so this is an economical dinner for sure. Four pork chops cost me $3.27. Stove Top Stuffing was $2. The apples $1.31. The onions $2.95. Also, I think I had an extra apple and onion I didn't use. The butter is about $.87. Grand total $10.40 which means about $2.60 per person for this meal. Now THAT is a bargain that can't be ignored. Use what you have on hand for a side dish. A salad, steamed veggies - whatever you've got. The pork chops are filling enough that you could even eat them on their own with no side.
Making Pork Chops, Caramelized Onions and Apples is very simple
This dish comes together pretty quick. Season the chops. Microwave the stuffing. The onions and apples take 25 minutes, but you don't have to do much but stir occasionally. Bake the pork chops. What are you waiting for? Your next Sunday night dinner is right here!Print
