1/2 cup cranberries
1/2 cup chopped pistachio nuts
1 egg
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Heat oven to 350° F. Cut sausage roll into 8 slices. Spread one slice of sausage over top of each pork chop, evenly covering completely; turn chops; spread with remaining sausage slices. To make stuffing, mix cranberries, pistachio nuts, egg, and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Slice each pork chop horizontally to open. Stuff the inside of each pork chop with the dressing and place in oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until thermometer reaches 155° F. Spoon sauce over pork chops; sprinkle with pistachios. Garnish with mint, if desired.

Berry Sauce: In a small saucepan combine 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam, 2 tablespoons orange juice, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 1/4 cup dried cranberries. Cook over medium-low heat just until melted and heated through.
