Stuffed Pork Chops

6 - 1 inch thick pork chops (either have butcher cut an even slit butterflying the chop to the bone or do your self, is easy to do)
1 box stuffing mix (I like Stove Top)
1 box Shake 'n Bake (pork flavored)
2 lg cloves garlic, smashed and minced
1/2 C each, celery and mushrooms (finely chopped)
Extra virgin olive oil

Sautee garlic, onion and mushrooms in a 2T olive oil. Add box stuffing along with amount of liquid it suggests. Set aside.
Rinse pork chops and blot with paper towel. Shake one at a time in the Shake 'n Bake and set on a rack in a roasting pan. If you don't have a rack, it's okay, just set in pan.
Divide stuffing into 6 portions, open pork chops and stuff as full as possible.
Roast at 400 deg for about 45 - 60 mins, checking meat close to the bone for doneness.
Remove from oven when done, let rest 5 mins and serve.
