These stuffed pork chops are tender, juicy, and delicious. The bacon is an amazing combo with the tart apple and savory cheese. Such a great twist for a pork chop. This recipe is easy and simple as well! Probably the most difficult part is making sure to tightly wrap the bacon around the pork chop and secure it well with the toothpicks, so everything stays together.
- 6 boneless pork chops, about 1 ½ ″ thick
- 4 oz gouda cheese, sliced thin
- 12 slices bacon
- 1 tart apple cored and sliced thinly
- 1 Tbsp thyme chopped
- Pink Himalayan salt or sea salt and ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease a 9×13″ baking dish with avocado or olive oil.
Make a deep slit into the side of each pork chop (do not cut the pork chop all the way through).
Stuff the apple slices and cheese slices into the chops and sprinkle with thyme, salt and pepper.
Wrap each pork chop with two slices of bacon. Fasten with toothpicks and place them into the greased baking dish.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the pork chops are at least 140F. Remove from oven, take the toothpicks out and serve!
