Recipe Week! Friday

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

2 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded

4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 (2 1/4 inch thick) center-cut, bone-in pork chops

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, parsley, and 1/8 teaspoon 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 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until pork is done. Careful not to overcook! Serve with potatoes or rice and  asparagus.
