½ c. apples, finely chopped

To make the stuffing: Saute’ and soften celery and onion in butter in a skillet.  In a bowl, mix bread crumbs, apples, parsley and dash of salt.  Add celery and onion to stuffing mixture, mix well.

Split chops lengthwise from outer edge to bone to make a pocket. Sprinkle chops with pepper and salt inside and outside. Stuff loosely with the stuffing. Add shortening to the skillet and brown the stuffed pork chops on both sides for 15-20 min. Grease a shallow 2-qrt. baking dish or casserole. Transfer the stuffed pork chops to the baking dish, cover and bake at 350° F. for 45 min. Uncover and bake an additional 15 min. or until pork is tender. Serves 6.
