Mmmmm Stuffed Pork Chops

I don’t have an official recipe up for this yet, but we just had a delicious meal of Stuffed Pork Chops, homemade Mashed Potatoes, and Applesauce.

The pork chops were boneless and thick cut (at least 1/2 in thick) and I began by marinating them in a mixture of Italian dressing, White wine (chablis) and some garlic powder for about 2 hours.

The stuffing consisted of croutons, lightly sauteed onion and garlic (we were out of celery) Rosemary, Thyme, Salt and Pepper, a little beef broth, and a dash of Berry flavored Juicy Juice to add a little sweetness.

Once the chops were fully marinated, I cut a pocket down the center of the chop, and crammed stuffing into it until it looked like some sort of clam. The chops and the remainder of the stuffing went into a baking pan and cooked for about 45 minutes.

The marinade made the pork tender and flavorful and blended perfectly with the flavor of the stuffing. This is definitely a recipe I will be doing again, along with an “official” write up for the recipes section.

Whoops, I almost forgot to mention the mashed potatoes. They came out extremely creamy (hmm, there’s a recipe name) possibly due to the addition of a bit of cream cheese along with the milk and butter. Kristen called them a potato mousse, which is pretty fitting. I need to refine this recipe a bit though, as the potatoes weren’t holding their shape, and you know we all like to build little models of Devil’s tower (or circus tents).
