Christmas of Dreams Day 4: What is your favorite holiday recipe

Today's question for Momdot's Christmas of Dreams is brought to you by: Bottlewise and Glow Mama.

What is your favorite Holiday recipe?

That is a good question. Last year was my first year to host any holiday get togethers. My mom handled the turkey for Thanksgiving and I did the rest. I honestly do not remember what I did. I am sure there was a green bean casserole as that is my all time favorite dish to eat. Wow. My mind is a blank.

I am going to be doing Christmas and Thanksgiving all by myself this year and I have no idea how to cook a turkey, but that is what phones are for! I call my mom ALL the time to ask her about recipes and cooking advice.

I will share a recipe that I have recently discovered and I absolutely LOVE it.

Feta Cheese Stuffed Pork Shops

1 contained feta or blue cheese crumbles ( I do not like blue cheese which is what the recipe calls for so I use Feta and it is yummy!

2 green onions chopped

4 pork loin chops bone in or boneless with pockets cut in them by deli


1/4 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon flour

3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350 (or you can cook these on the grill)

Combine choppen onons and cheese crumbles and stuff in pockets of pork chops. Secure openings with toothpicks.

Place in oven for 30 minutes or so until done.

Combine sour cream, flour and milk and pepper to taste in a sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until mixture boils and then reduce heat and simmer about 3 minutes still stirring until mixture thickens. Pour mixture over chops and garnish with any leftover feta/onion mixture.

This is realtively easy and quick and is super yummy! My husband said it is his favorite meal I cook.

That sounds like something my hubby would like. He begs me to fix pork all the time but I can't stand it.
