Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon


"Easy and elegant enough for the in-laws. Be sure, when filling the chops, not to stuff it too full, or the meat will be done cooking before the cheese has had a chance to melt."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cheese, bacon, parsley, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I thought the flavors if this dish were too simple and I did not like the cheese stuffed into the pork chop. It wasn't bad, but it definitely left me wanting something more.
