The stuffed pork chops sound yummy! And easy! I'll definitely try it.

Joined you for dinner on Monday night and tried the pork chops. The filling was very tasty! I think that I probably got thinner chops that you because I only had to cook them for 35 minutes.

You're right, Lisa. I should have mentioned that I use 3/4 to 1 inch pork chops. I buy a pork loin when it's on sale for $1.88 lb and have the butcher cut it into chops and two roasts, then wrap them in freezer paper. Half-inch chops would take much less time, you're right.
