Sassy Sweet and Savoury Pork Dinner

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Chef1MOM-Connie

I love thel ist for RSC 15 as it is usually on hand at home. So in honour of those ingredients here is a creation I hope you will enjoy as much as we did. The other white meat is healthy for you. Apples and a suprise with bread crumbs top off the taste to give you the sweet and savory petite explosion with each bite. Kids will love this yet it is company friendly. Looks very pretty on a plate for those dinners where you want to impress.

Loved it. Apples and pork always go together. I used chopped apples and drizzled the apricot preserves on top. Panko bread crumbs are available in Bulk Food Stores in case you can't find them in the grocery store. Definitely another favorite for my recipe binder.
