Freeze for Later

Purchase the pork chops and slice so they are ready to stuff. Seal them in freezer bags. Make the stuffing and place it in a separate freezer container. Freeze both the chops and the stuffing for up to 1 month. When ready to cook, thaw both chops and stuffing in the refrigerator. Then prepare as directed.Elizabeth says:

The gluten-free corn bread creates a stuffing with the perfect texture-it’s neither soggy nor too dry.
