Perfect for this time of year. Apples and sweet potatoes, raisins, cinnamon and stuffed pork chops? All baked in one pan? Who could ask for anything more! The sweet simple things of life! From Susan Branch blog.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel potatoes, halve them and boil them until about half done; set aside.
Heat oil in large skillet and brown chops on both sides--salt and pepper. Remove from pan and cool. Make stuffing. Cut a deep slit in the side of each chop and fill with stuffing. Put chops and potatoes in large baking pan.
Peel, halve and core apples (arrange in pan among the chops and potatoes) and sprinkle on raisins. Sprinkle each apple with cinnamon. Cover the pan tightly with foil. Bake 50 minutes and serve.
To make stuffing: Melt butter in skillet; add onion and celery and cook slowly 'til soft. Add parsley, breadcrumbs and salt & pepper. Mix well and correct consistency w/ more breadcrumbs or butter.
