Last week I bought some pork chops. I don't know why I bought them since I really don't like pork chops, and I really don't cook them very well. But it was probably because my husband said that he didn't want to eat chicken anymore.
So I had the pork chops, but I didn't know what to do with them.
And then it came to me - wrap it in bacon! My husband would be thrilled because: (1) it wasn't chicken; and (2) it was wrapped in his favorite thing, bacon! And he was thrilled. But he said the ingredient that pulled this meal together wasn't the bacon, it was the bleu cheese on top of the bacon.
Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops with Bleu Cheese
4 boneless pork chops, cleaned and trimmed and seasoned with salt and pepper
8 pieces of bacon
optional (but highly recommended): crumbled bleu cheese
Pre-heat oven to 425 F. Wrap each pork chop in two slices of bacon and place the wrapped chops on a baking sheet.
Place bacon wrapped pork into oven at 425F for 15-20 mins depending on how thick your chop is. Drop temperature of oven to 350 F and cook chops for about 5-10 mins long, again, depending on how thick your chops is. Remove chops from oven. If using the cheese, turn on broiler and sprinkle chops with your desired amount of bleu cheese. If there is excess grease on your pan, you should remove it before placing the pan back into the oven. Place chops under broiler for a few minutes, carefully watching to make sure there is no burning or grease splatter. Remove after desired meltage/browning has occurred.
