6 pork chops, 1-1/2 inches thick, slit with a pocket
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
2 apples, diced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or thyme
1 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper
Wash and dry the chops and season them with salt and pepper. Combine the other ingredients, except the cream, and stuff lightly into the slits. Place in a baking dish, cover with heavy cream, and bake for 1-1/2 hours or until done in a 350 degrees F oven. It is convenient to bake sweet potatoes or sweet potato pudding at the same time. Cornbread, too, if you have a hungry family.
