Disclaimer: I used this recipe as a basic guide, tweaking it to my tastes (which I feel is what we should all do with any recipe), using the "a little of this and a little of that" approach. For example, I didn't have any hamburger buns laying around, nor was I about to buy any specifically for this recipe. But I did have some odds and ends laying around that substituted quite nicely – some partially smooshed bakery garlilc croutons and about half a dozen lonely crostini hanging out in the freezer. In other words, any type of bread you have around works out fine. For a more complex flavor I used poultry seasoning instead of rubbed sage; enough to my satisfaction – again, I didn’t measure. For richness and added moistness I added a little melted butter to the stuffing and didn’t use quite as much celery and onion as the recipe directed – again, I added it “to taste,” to what seemed right for me. I topped the stuffed chops with bacon and, because my chops were quite large (thanks, Hubs…) they needed about 45 minutes in the oven. Upon serving, I finished them off with a quick gravy made of melted butter, cornstarch, chicken broth and a dash each of Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce for color. So… use this great reference recipe confidently, working with it to your own tastes and you’ll be very pleased.
