Pork Chops with Applesauce

Allison will be graduating in a few short weeks, and I have been trying to find an inexpensive way to feed the many people I know she's going to want to invite to her grad party. As we all know, inflation is at an all time high, and for those of us that have to plan a major celebration, we're going to have to get a little creative this year to save a few dollars. Chicken is usually a good route to go when you're pinching pennies, but as I was perusing the meat counter the other day, a sign caught my eye advertising Pork Chops with Applesauce and I thought that might actually work for the party. Like chicken, pork tends to be budget friendly, so I grabbed a few pounds then went home and searched for an easy and crowd pleasing recipe. As luck would have it, Golden Blossom Honey had exactly the Pork Chops with Applesauce recipe I was looking for.  
 
 
When you're working on feeding a crowd, not only does the budget factor in on what's being served, but the ease of the recipe plays a major role too. After a test run on pork chops, I've decided we're going to absolutely be tossing them into the party mix. I had this dish together in just under an hour, so that leaves plenty of time for me to tend to other party prep while it's doing its thing in the oven. If you don't have cinnamon on hand, I think you could easily just use cinnamon applesauce and skip the spice. Not that it's a huge time or money saver, but why add in more steps when you don't have to? This recipe works for crowds big and small, so be sure to save it for an easy week night meal or even for Sunday dinner. 

Ingredients

4 (1/2-inch thick) pork loin rib chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup applesauce
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

    1. We won't be empty nesters just yet. She decided to start off at our community college and will still be living at home for at least one more year since it's a 15 minute drive from our house. She can keep saving her money instead of throwing it away on room and board or an apartment while she's in school.

  3. I was thinking about the Brady Bunch too with that title! Lol! I made bbq oven pork chops for my husband’s birthday party this year and it was a hit. We have my nephew’s grad party to attend in a few weeks and a wedding in August. We usually host Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day.

  9. I use apple sauce when eating a lot of meat, especially pork chops & chicken cutlets. I find it very hard to swallow dry meat so the apple sauce really helps.

    1. Honestly, I had never heard of applesauce and meat until recently. Makes sense though because we use apple juice on ham at the holidays.
