Stuffed Pork Chops

I stuffed 44 pork chops today. 

I also made eleven 4-person servings of meat/veggies for slow cooker beef stroganoff.  Now I don't feel like making dinner! ;)  A freezer meal swap is coming up - can ya tell?  I love the looks I got at the stores today, with massive quantities of everything - people look at me like I have some major issues with food.  I just smile a little weirdly back, unless they dare ask, and then we talk meal swaps. 

Tonight, we'll have the pork chops - I'm sure I'll get over it after I smell them cooking! I call these kid-approved, but on particularly picky days, Mr. No Veggies takes the stuffing out and just eats the pork chop, which is fine with me.  Here's the recipe:

Stuffed Pork Chops
4 thick cut boneless pork chops
1 package Stove Top stuffing mix - I also sauteed some mushrooms, onions, garlic, and threw in some fresh sage and thyme from my garden.  Kind of a semi-homemade approach...

To prepare for freezing: Cut a pocket in each chop.  Prepare stuffing according to the package directions. Stuff pork chops. Wrap each chop separately in plastic wrap and place in Ziploc bag. To split: Remove desired # of chops from the Ziploc bag as needed. [Instead of this, I packed 4 stuffed chops into a foil pan, and covered with foil.]

To cook: Thaw. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until no longer pink inside.
