    We have a pear tree in our backyard and I hate to waste any of them so this recipe was different AND good. And having stuffing instead of rice or potatoes was refreshing!

    No leftovers! Flavors combine really well and were just a bit different from our typical pork chop recipes. Will make again soon.

    This recipe has way too much sodium per serving for my family. I lowered the sodium 938 milligrams per serving by leaving out the 1/4t of salt called for in the recipe and by making my own cornbread and crumbling it. I don't add salt to my cornbread, use the easy recipe on the box and also use no-sodium baking powder.

    I haven't made this but wonder if you could use regularl stuffing as I don't like cornbread?

    I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! It could easily be stretched to have 6 pork chops and still have enough stuffing.

    I tried this recipe the other day and it was a hit with the family! Everyone kept going back to the pan for more. This had a nice mix of flavor and texture and left us enough for a second meal.
