If you’re in need of a quick dinner recipe that doesn’t skimp on flavor, make this sheet pan supper. The Hamilton Beach Test Kitchen paired spice-rubbed pork chops with a delicious mix of maple glazed apples, Brussels sprouts, and dried cranberries. It’s a delicious, seasonal recipe you’ll make over and over again this winter.
First, make a simple spice rub. Combine brown sugar, paprika, salt, Chinese five spice, fennel, garlic powder and onion powder (sugar, spice, and everything nice). Cover both sides of the pork chops with the rub and then place on a baking sheet.
Next, combine Brussels sprouts, apples, and dried cranberries in a bowl. Cover the fruit and vegetable mixture with a simple sauce made of maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Arrange the mixture evenly on the pan around the pork.
Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees in your Hamilton Beach® EasyReach Toaster Oven - or double the recipe and bake in a traditional oven. After 20 minutes, give the Brussels sprouts and apples a stir then cook for another 5 minutes until the pork is fully cooked and the vegetables are tender.
The spicy rub adds tons of flavor to the juicy pork chops. Paired with the sweet mixture of maple-glazed roasted fruits and veggies, it’s the perfect sheet pan supper for sweet & savory fans.
