Did someone say bacon? Wait….cheese also? I’m in!!! What could be better than pork on pork? Hmmm, let’s think about that…maybe…pork on pork and cheese!!!! Yummo!!!
7 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 pork chops, thicker the better…bone in…if you prefer, some people are picky about their pork on pork;)
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 and 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 7 to 8 minutes on each side, or until pork is done. Careful not to overcook. The chops will continue to cook as you leave them to rest for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!
