Pork Chops with Apple-Sage Stuffing

Apples and sage-scented stuffing made from an easy packaged mix cook with smoked chops, then rest overnight to marry flavors even more.

Pork Chops with Apple-Sage Stuffing

Make the Most of This Recipe: It is safe to place the fully cooked smoked pork chops over the stuffing and refrigerate overnight; the pork is thoroughly heated with the stuffing. Smoked pork chops are similar in color to ham.

Ingredient Substitutions: For more flavor, add an additional 1/2 teaspoon of crushed dried sage leaves to the stuffing. For moister stuffing, add 1/4 cup of additional apple juice.

Kitchen Tip: This recipe may be baked as directed on the recipe immediately after assembly.
