Ingredients

  • 2 ounces smoked Gouda cheese shredded
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 (2¼ inch thick) center-cut, bone-in pork chops
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat an outdoor (or even an indoor) grill for medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cheese, bacon, parsley, and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper.
  • Lay the pork chops 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!
