Stuffed Pork Chops with Smoked Gouda & Bacon
We couldn’t get enough of this. I baked these instead of grilling and they were divine. Can’t wait to try them on the grill. From Allrecipes.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes
- 2 ounces smoked Gouda cheese , shredded
- 4 slices bacon , cooked and crumbled
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 2 (2 1/4 inch thick) center-cut, bone-in pork chops
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- ground black pepper
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
In a small bowl, combine the cheese, bacon, parsley, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper.
Lay the chop flat on cutting board, and with a sharp knife held parallel to the board, cut a pocket into the pork, going all the way to the bone, but leaving the sides intact. Stuff cheese mixture into pocket, and close with a wooden toothpick. Brush meat with oil, and season with salt and more black pepper.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until pork is done. Careful not to overcook!
