  1. Preheat outdoor grill for medium-high heat. Prepare a maple grilling plank by soaking in water according to manufacturer's directions.
  2. Place the pork chops on a clean, flat surface, and cut from one side through the middle to within one-half inch of the other side. Open the two sides and spread them out like an open book. Set aside until needed.
  3. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, and celery; cook and stir until the onion is soft and transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach, and cook until wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, and add the croutons: stir until croutons absorb the broth. Remove from heat, and stir in the Italian cheese blend and the Parmesan cheese. Spoon the vegetable-cheese mixture into the pockets of each pork chop. Close one side of the pork chop over the filling. Place pork chops on the prepared grilling plank. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cover and grill, turning once, until pork chops are no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 30 minutes.

I loved this recipe. I didn't know what a maple plank was, so I just baked them for 35-45 min. But I fallowed the recipe for the stuffing to a tee and it turned out great. My boyfriend doesnt even eat stuffing on Thanksgiving and he loved it. I will def make this again!!!


these were pretty good. my husband loved them. the only change i made was i used a cedar plank because our store didn't have maple. also, the mixture was a little wet, so next time i will add the croutons, then slowly add the broth until i get a good consistency.


The stuffing and the pork were awesome, but I had a little trouble grilling on the plank. Never having grilled on a plank before, I bought a 1/4 inch piece of maple and soaked it for 6 hrs in water. Either my plank was way too thin, or didn't soak it long enough (maybe it was a combination) but after about 5 minutes the entire piece of wood was on fire! I prompty removed the pork chops from the fiery plank and put them on the top rack of the grill, where they only 15 more minutes to grill. they were slightly blackened, but still excellent. My family's only complaint was that the stuffing might have been a little too miost. Will definately try again, with a thicker plank, soaked longer and a little less chicken broth in the stufing. Would have been 5 stars if not for the fire!
