    We really enjoyed the flavors in this dish. I cooked as posted. I did use thin chops so added them after 15 mins of cooking time. The apples and potatoes come out so tender. I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that you can't taste the sage. I cut the recipe in half and used an 8X8 size pan. Thanks for posting. :)

    I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us & that worked out just fine! As long as I can get unblemished yams I don't like peeling them so didn't for this recipe either! And, I quickly browned the chops before putting the casserole together & also used a very generous rounded measure of sage ~ It all came together for A VERY TASTY MAIN DISH! Thanks much for a very nice keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars]

    The apple/sweet potato combo was perfect. I could not taste the sage, so next time I plan on doubling it. This would be good with thyme also. This was easy to put together. Thanks for sharing:) Made for the March Herb/Spice of the Month--SAGE tag.

    Tagged for 1-2-3 Tag Feb 08 I must say I wasn't sure how the potatoes and the apples would blend but they came out great together. I used 3/4 in pork chops with bone in and pork butt steaks 3/4 inch. I breaded my pork chops lightly with italian bread crumbs( to keep n moisture) It killed me not to add garlic but I did not. The flavors melded into the pork and gave a sense of sweetness to them which I loved. The whole family enjoyed dinner. I did have 1 the next day for lunch and microwaved it for 2 min. along with the apple and sweet potato. YUMMY th 2nd day as well. Next time though I will seperate the apple/potatoe from teh meat as the nuker did overcook them a bit in the reheat. I will make these again and again and also sending recipe to DD. YUM Thank you.

    Make sure you use thick cut pork chops. Ours were thin and they weren't very juicy. The apples and the sweet potatoes were cooked excellent though. I think next time I will cover the dish while it bakes.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY I am a middle aged foodie who has had the luxury of living all over the world except asia. Lived in or grew up in Nigeria, Kenya, Chicago, Russia,and haiti. born in New Zealand, brother born in Austria and many more. I have chronic medication resistant depression after 10 years on anti depressants that worked well but would stop working after a year or two, so now do my best at home living on disabilty. Not a bad thing, many have far worse health issues but i have been able to concentrate on food/cooking. My main passions are my cats. I live in the woods and somehow many starving strays or "dumps" have found the message babies who passed on left in the woods saying "suck lives at xxxx road. Most arrive sick and/or starving. Right now i have 2 that arrived with feline herpes and their attendant 2ndry bacterial infections but are doing beautifully. One old man who was going to be euthanized bc a lady who found him as a stray was moving and didnt want him...well he was a biter and rather grumpy who was in ICU for 3 days with a deadly gut infection which was fixed but he left with a diagnosis of diabetes. 3 months on insulin and finally diet controlled and he caught the herpes virus, respiratory symptom version and turned into a cuddler. Butterscotch must think "why didnt i figure out this cuddle stuff was great before i got sick!" Doing wonderfully even though he has bouts. he and the other kids are my babies. Sadly Butterscotch died of Lymphatic cancer in winter of 2008. A year before Big Boy arrived in my life, starving and weak. Full of affection he jumped into my arms and stayed, turns out he has FIV (cat hiv) so he needs to be watched closely. I love him dearly <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
