Gouda and Bacon Stuffed Pork Chops

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!!!

gouda

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!
