Addtional Info for the Stuff Pork Chop Recipe of last post

I have decided the next time I make this recipe I am going to add some roasted walnuts and a little nutmeg to the stuffing filling and will use sour cream in lieu of whipping cream in the topping with a few roasted walnuts crumbled on top.

Gourmet Boneless Pork Chops Stuffed w/Gorgonzola & Apples

You have GOT to try this recipe! It is simply Easy Gourmet cooking and delicious. I honestly thought this would take a long time to prepare but it was quick and super easy.

2 boneless pork chops
1 chopped fresh garlic glove
1 chopped green apple (use 2 apples for 4 pork chops)
1 container Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp Thyme
Whipping Cream or Half & Half

In a hot skillet add butter, peeled and chopped garlic clove, chopped green apple and thyme until starting to soften and brown approx 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and add 1/2 of your gorgonzola cheese crumbles; stir together.

Take your pork chops (depending on their size), either cut a slit in the side so you can stuff or if larger chops you can just stuff the center, fold over and toothpick the end. Take your cheese/apple mixture and stuff your pork chops, being sure not to overstuff them.

Once you have stuffed your pork chops, in a hot buttered skittet, brown the chops on each side 3-4 minutes per side then place in preheated oven on 400 for approx 10 minutes until done. (Optional: you can grill your chops 3-4 minutes each side on medium heat then turn heat down to low for approx 7-10 minutes until done.)

While the chops are browning on each side, in a separate sauce pan, add your remaining gorgonzola cheese and add 2 TBSP of whipping cream or half & half and whisk over low heat until melted. Be sure not to burn (if you want a thinner topping add more cream). FYI...I just made this dish and I personally didn't like the cream sauce on top.

Once you take your cooked chops out of the oven, place each one on a plate and drizzle the hot cheese mixture over the top and serve with fresh sauted vegetables.

This dish didn't take long to prep or prepare, I thought it would take longer but it was easy, quick and delicious.

Bon Appetit!

Catching Up!

Sorry it's been so long since my last post. We have had a lot going lately. I think things should be settling back down so I can at least make weekly posts.

Yesterday, Terry & I hosted a family wedding shower for my niece Sarah Melton. We served Southern Favorites and Sarah's favorites as well. Nana's Individual Banana Puddings, Chicken Salad in Phyllo Pastry Shells, Brad Melton's BBQ Sliders, Smoked Tuna Dip fresh from the gulf, Southern Style Powdered Sugar Sprinkled Brownies, Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Southern Sweet Tea, Bottled Coca-Cola's and Bottled Water. It was delicious and a hit!

I'm going thru recipes and will be posted some good and easy summer recipes soon!

Have a blessed day!
