  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Combine the bread, sage, and onion in a food processor and pulse on and off, until coarse crumbs form. Spread on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until golden. Return to the food processor and pulse again until finely chopped. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Place the chops in a roasting pan and add the onions. Add the apples, sprinkle with sugar, then drizzle with olive oil. Add the rosemary, then season with a pinch of salt, pepper, and the golden bread crumb mixture.
  3. Roast for 30-35 minutes, turning once, until the meat is cooked through. Serve with new potatoes or mashed potatoes.
  • Add some new potatoes to the pan with the apple and onions. Just make sure the pan is large enough so it roasts rather than steams.
  • If the pork is ready before everything else, take it out and keep warm-you don't want it to overcook or it will become dry.
