With winter approaching, it is always fun to whip up some “comfort food” for a nice meal in the evening.  My favorite comfort food always involves sweet potatoes, and stuffing.  The hubby loves pork chops.  So I decided to combine them for a quick and easy meal that can be put together in no time.   This yummy recipe uses Kraft Natural Shredded Cheese for extra flavor!

Fabulous!  Creamy sweet potatoes with a touch of brown sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup.  And the pork chop is stuffed with bread crumbs, mushrooms, shredded cheese and spices.  It’s like a holiday dinner but without the mess, the chaos, the family drama, the kids running around, and Aunt Ethel silently judging your house cleaning as she casually runs her finger across the top of your fridge.

Just saying.

Use a sharp knife to slice the pork chops horizontally towards the bone, creating a pocket to place the stuffing in.

Fill the pocket with the cheesy stuffing mix.  Wrap in aluminum foil.

For this recipe (and because I live in a RV), I had the hubby cook the chops on the grill.  If you choose this method, simply place them on a hot grill, cover and cook about 30 minutes until done.  Or place them in your oven and bake the chops in the oven for about 30 minutes.  Chops are done when the internal temperature registers 155 degrees on an instant-read thermometer when inserted in the pork.

Cheesy stuffed pork chops and sweet potatoes go together well.  They are the perfect pair!  Like peanut butter and jelly, Cheech & Chong, Ben & Jerry, unicorns and glitter, zombies and brains, Mary Kate & Ashley….

Well, they just go well together.  Take my word for it.

You’ll have to excuse me.  I guess I’m a little giddy because my refrigerator is dusty and Aunt Ethel hasn’t the slightest idea.

It doesn’t take much to make my day.
