Intro: Cream Cheese and Nectarine Stuffed Pork Chops
This recipe combines pork, bacon, cream cheese and nectarines. If I could find a way to include chocolate it would have all the best foods in the world.
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need
2 thick cut pork chops
3 oz cream cheese
6 slices bacon
salt & pepper
onion and garlic powder
Using a paring knife or a steak knife, cut a pocket in the middle of the pork chop, not all the way through. Use the picture as a guide.
Step 3: Prepare
Sprinkle inside and out with salt & pepper, onion and garlic powder. Put 1/2 the cream cheese in each. Don't worry about overfilling with cream cheese, a little will ooze out while it's cooking no matter what you do.
Step 4: A Little More Prep
Quarter the nectarine and slice each quarter into 3-4 slices. Use the nectarine to plug up your pork pouch (try to say pork pouch 3x fast and not start laughing). Wrap each piece in bacon, using toothpicks to secure if necessary.
Step 5: Cook
Normally I would throw this in a 350 oven for 45-60 minutes, but everybody was starving, so I threw them in the frying pan for about 20 minutes with a lid on. They turned out perfect.
