Substitutions and Variations
- Condensed Soup: If you aren't a fan of cream of mushroom soup or don't have it handy, try cream of chicken or cream of celery instead.
- Sautéed Veggies: For a super simple recipe, omit the celery and onions. It may alter the flavor, but it removes an entire step.
- Omit the Sour Cream: I love to add sour cream to add extra creaminess, but you don't have to use it. Or, add a little milk, heavy cream, or half and half instead.
- For extra flavor, add some Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce to the soup mixture.
- Seasonings: Garlic powder is a flavorful mix-in, but don't forget about paprika, thyme, onion powder, sage, or your other favorite seasonings.
- Choose your favorite stuffing flavor. There are several different varieties and flavors of stuffing mix. I love savory herb stuffing, but turkey and chicken are some other tasty options.
- Don't over bake the pork chops! When pork chops are over baked, they become dry, tough, and difficult to cut.
- Wrap the pan tightly with foil. You'll want to make sure the pan is wrapped tightly so the pork chops don't dry out.
- Cook to the correct temp. Make sure to cook the pork chops until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F.
Refrigerator: Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Reheating: Microwave leftover pork chops until warmed through, or warm in the oven on 350°F to help maintain texture.
Frequently Asked Questions
How thick are the pork chops in this recipe?
The pork chops need to be between ½ and ¾-inch thick; otherwise, the cooking time needs to be adjusted.
Can I use bone-in pork chops?
Yes, you can use bone-in pork chops, but I'd recommend searing them first. And, you'll want to increase the cooking time to ensure they cook all the way through.
How can I get a crunchy top on the stuffing?
About 5 minutes before the pork chops finish baking, remove the foil from the pan. Let the pork chop stuffing bake cook uncovered the rest of the way.
The top of the stuffing should dry out a little and become crunchy and delicious. For stuffing with a little more moisture, add ½ cup extra chicken broth.
