A favorite dish in our house, especially during cooler weather, are pork chops and applesauce. One of my kids recently decided that applesauce is too mushy so I came up with this variation that has been a big hit with everyone in the family. These baked pork chops and apples are a favorite meal in our home.

In lieu of applesauce, I slice apples and lay them in the bottom of a casserole dish.
I sprinkle cinnamon on top of the apples and then layer the pork shop on top of them.
Next, I make the sauce and pour it over the pork and apples. In case you don’t make it all the way down to the comments, one reader mentioned that she replaced half of the sugar with honey and was pleased with the result.
Then it goes in the oven for 35-40 minutes and dinner is served! We will usually have sweet potato fries and green beans. The sweet glaze keeps the kids from complaining about vegetables since they feel like they’re getting away with an early dessert. It’s surprising how a little sprinkle of cinnamon and brown sugar can transform a meal into kid-friendly.
