  • 2 oz Gouda cheese smoked, shredded
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper plus more as needed to taste
  • 2 pork chops 2 ¼-inch thick each, center-cut, bone-in
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cheese, bacon, parsley, and black pepper.
  • Lay the chop flat on a cutting board. 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 the pocket and close with a wooden toothpick.
  • Brush meat with oil and season with salt and more black pepper.
  • Lightly oil the grill grate. Grill over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side, or until pork is done. Be careful not to overcook. Serve once done.
