Ingredients

  • 4 1" thick Pork Chops
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese Grated
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese Grated
  • 1/4 cup Sun-dried Tomatoes Chopped
  • 1/4 cup Pine Nuts
  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Dried Oregano
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Instructions

  • Using a paring knife cut a deep pocket in the pork chops and set aside. In a small bowl mix together the panko bread crumbs, cheese, sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, garlic, and spices. Mix well, I usually use my hands for this as a spoon just doesn't do it. When well mixed add the olive oil to moisten and mix again.
    Divide the stuffing mixture in 4 parts and stuff each of the chops. Season the chops with salt and pepper or your favorite grill seasoning and bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour, or until the internal temp reaches 160 degrees. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
    You can cook these on the grill if you want to, they really are even better that way. Just use your meat thermometer and cook until they reach 160 degrees turning half way through the cooking process.
