Alice did the cooking in the Bradys’ household. She made simple, All-American dinners and published hers and cast member’s recipes in a cookbook “Alice’s Brady Bunch Cookbook” in 1994. Meatloaf, fried chicken, homemade macaroni and cheese …The recipes are quick and easy, positively timeless!

Here is the recipe!

Ann B. Davis’ Pork Chops and Applesauce

1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 tbsp. olive oil
8 pork chops
Salt to taste
2 tsp. black pepper
2/3 cup dry Vermouth
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 tbsp. finely grated lemon zest

Flavor chops with spices.
Combine vermouth, lemon juice, butter and oil in saucepan.
Fry chops.
Grate lemon peel as garnish.
Serve over applesauce.

Give Tiger a bath…and don’t play ball on the house.

My Notes:
Be sure to brown the chops and cook only until cooked through. (Pork chops can easily be overcooked and turn into hockey pucks)
Low/Medium heat!
Meat thermometer temp for pork 160 degrees!

Thanks for the laughs, Alice!
