READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Diana Adcock

I love chops this way, but then again I'm a cranberry freak. I turn up the oven a bit on the last part and sometimes add some soy sauce and pineapple to the recipe.

This is a great recipe, soooo tasty. I used 4 centre cut chops 1" thick. I did not have fresh cranberries, so I used 1/3 cup of sultana raisins and 1/2 cup of canned whole cranberries. I only had 12 grain bread and used 3 slices since I only had 4 chops.Cooked as stated and turned up to 375 for the final 15 minutes. Chops came out tender, juicy and had tons of flavour. The "stuffing" came out with a nice crusty outer layer.This will definetely be made often in our house!
