Serves: 4
  • 4 pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • cup onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • pound bacon slices, chopped
  1. To prepare the stuffing, add the bacon to a large sauté pan render the fat. Add the chopped onions to the sizzling bacon fat and cook until tender and translucent. Stir in the garlic and rosemary and cook 1 minute more. Season with lots of cracked black pepper. Fold in the breadcrumbs and remove from the pan to cool.
  2. While the stuffing is cooling, cut a pocket in the pork chops for the stuffing. Insert the tip of a small, sharp knife into the side of the chop, just above the bone. Push the knife toward the meat of the chop and wiggle it back and forth t o open as large a pocket as possible.
  3. When the stuffing has cooled, stir in the parsley. Fill each pork chop with the stuffing- each chop should bulge slightly- don’t over fill! Season the stuffed chops with salt and pepper and grill or brown well on each side in a skillet and finish cooking in the oven. The chops should require 12-16 minutes total cooking time.
