It has definitely been a while since I have done a Your Recipe My Kitchen post, here is a great one for you. This is a recipe I bookmarked a while back. Actually, I liked it so much that I both bookmarked it and pinned it. And then like most bookmarks and pins, I forgot all about it. The other day I decided I really wanted to cook something from Pinterest and I went through the recipes I had on there and as soon as I saw this fabulous pork dish from Jane Deer - I knew this was dinner. The original recipe is for a stuffed pork chop but I didn't have thick chops in the house so I changed my dish up a bit and cooked my pork chops on top of the sweet potato and apple mixture. I will admit, this dish had a quite a few steps but in the end it was sooooo gooood! I would definitely make this one again - oh and don't even get me started on the glaze - delicious!! Thank You Jennifer @ Jane Deere for sharing this amazing dish!
