I had some leftover canned pumpkin from making another recipe so I made these up! They have a spicy kick to them. I hope you like them!

Wow was this a sensational dish and quite out of the ordinary. I had lots of leftover butternut squash and used that in place of the pumpkin. I loved the way the celery worked with the butternut and the spices and thing the topping alone could stand as a perfect side to either pork or chicken. Made a full batch of the topping for just two boneless chops so the meat was well encased, moist and tender. Thank you for a meal that provided great results with very little effort. Made for Potluck Tag.

Just great on a chilly fall night! I wanted to use the whole can of pumpkin (which is 1 and 3/4 cups), so I doubled the seasonings except for the red pepper flakes. The 1/2 tsp. was enough of that for me! Absolutely loved it and will make again. I served plain cooked spinach and cornbread with it. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

I liked these!! Spicy and keeps the meat so tender and juicy. I used really thin chops so I could see a longer cooking time for thicker chops. Thanks for a unique pork chop recipe!
