It’s Thanksgiving. There’s a bounty of everything. And I always tend to over-provide.
Therefore, this is what I often hear from my mom this time of year. “Oh my word!!! There’s enough food here for the Spanish marines!”

My favorite turkey side dish known to me as stuffing and to some as dressing, is known for being plentiful. And then leftovers. What to do with all that stuffing besides stuffing more stuffing in your ever expanding mouth?
Save it. Freeze it. And make more out of what you have. That’s why I’m maximizing my leftovers by starting with this stuffed pork chop recipe and sharing more recipe links at the end of this post to cover your ever-loving-leftover-stuffing desires.
Hit it, marine!

Instead of distributing to neighbors or sending home with family, I popped my leftover stuffing in a freezer bag and froze it until I was ready for my stuffing cravings to resume. Stuffing will stay good in the freezer for about 3 months, so I was feeling pretty good about it.
Alas, I didn’t have to wait nearly that long.continue to the recipe… about Stuffed Pork Chops Plus 10 More Ways to Use Leftover Stuffing
