A big thanks to Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls and Bread for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own.

Welp, this is the first year that I have seen Christmas and Halloween decorations up at the same time in department stores.  Is this what’s happening in the world now!? (Or has this been happening all-along and I just live under a rock?)

Well, it got me thinking about the holidays a little earlier than usual, so I’m starting to stock up my pantry for turkey day. I know I am a food blogger and all, but I don’t make my own bread stuffing. There, I said it.

I just can’t justify spending the time making the homemade stuff when I can get a big ‘ol bag of Martin’s Potatobred Soft Cubed Stuffing. As soon as you open up a bag of this, you’ll see what I mean, these soft cubes of buttery-tasting bread have a hint of sweetness and that beautiful golden color that really takes any recipe to the next level.

What kind of Pork Chops Are Best to Stuff?

Boneless pork chops of regular thickness work perfectly well for stuffing, no need to purchase the extra thick ones. Using a pairing knife allows you to easily slice a deep pocket into the pork chops that will hold a good amount of filing.

How Long Do You Bake Pork Chops?

Boneless pork chops don’t take long to cook in the oven, baking them at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes will do the trick.

Can I Stuff and Freeze These for Future Meals?

Yes, these make a fabulous freezer food. You can stuff them all and wrap any uncooked pork chops in foil to be baked at a later date. Simply add the foil-wrapped pork to a labeled freezer bag.

When you’re ready to serve them, simply let them defrost in the refrigerator overnight, uncover them, and bake them as instructed in the recipe below!

Can you use leftover stuffing for this recipe?

Absolutely, this is a great way to use up leftover stuffing.

If you would like to avoid overcooking the stuffing since this is the second time around, I recommend searing the pork chops over medium heat for just a few minutes on each side to give it texture and color. Then I would stuff them and bake them covered at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

How Long Can I Store These in the Freezer?

These pork chops are best if eaten within 3 months of freezing.

How Long Are Leftovers Good in the Fridge?

These are best if eaten within three days of refrigeration.

What can I Serve with These Pork Chops?

I recommend serving these with roasted potatoes and green beans. Mashed Potatoes or Brown Rice are other delicious options as well.
