Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Porkchops





This has become a favorite meal in our big household.  It’s inexpensive, quick and easy which makes it even better!

Prepare your favorite stuffing, slice open thick pork chops and season with Season All.  I very happily used my new steak knives…then had to take a five minute break while Hubby cleaned and patched up my finger.  Without using my middle finger, which was kind of difficult, I finished slicing the pork open and added the stuffing.

I wrapped two slices of bacon around each stuffed pork chop, seasoned the outside with Season All, salt and pepper.

I covered them with aluminum foil then baked them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  I served them with steamed cheesy pasta with broccoli and had a very happy family!  You can also wrap them individually and put them on the grill.
