They’re tender, bursting with flavor, and come together in less than 30 minutes. If you’ve only ever had dry, sad pork chops before and want to try something different, this is the recipe for you.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, pepper, garlic powder, chives, provolone, and bacon, stirring until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
  3. Season all sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.
  4. Carefully cut a pocket through the side of the pork chop in order to create a cavity. Stuff the cavity with a generous spoonful of the cream cheese mixture and press around the edges of the pork to seal it in. Repeat with the remaining pork chops.
  5. Coat the stuffed pork chops in the flour, shaking off any excess, then the eggs, then the bread crumbs.
  6. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Fry the pork chops for 1-2 minutes, until golden brown, then flip and repeat on the other side. Remove from the heat and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is bubbling and starting to brown.
  7. Enjoy!
