1/4 pound smoked Gouda cheese, shredded
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 center-cut (2 1/4 inch thick) bone-in pork chops
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper
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!
