Crazy Easy Cheesy Stuffed Pork Chops – One Pan!!!!

For some reason we don’t cook pork chops that often and, come to think of it, I don’t know why?? 1. Pork Chops have so much flavor! 2. They’re easy to cook! 3. They absolutely go great with pretty much any side dish!

For this recipe the pork chop is seared to perfection, stuffed with ham and cheese then finished in the oven. This is one of my favorite dinners. This cheesy pork chop is seriously juicy and super easy to make.

Cutting the calories

We’re always trying to cut every calorie possible when coming up with new recipes or re-imagined recipes. One of the best ways to cut calories is by cutting oils when they aren’t needed. I mean, it makes us crazy when watching a cooking show and the chef takes a bottle of olive oil and just drizzles a ton of it over the meat or they melt a stick of butter to cook a really nice steak or pork chop. Of course, its going to be good, who doesn’t love a piece of meat that has been pan seared in butter and olive oil!??! We have found the trick though; by adding spices and using the olive oil more sparingly, you get an even more delicious tasting meal that isn’t overloaded with fat and calories.

Every tablespoon of olive oil is 119 calories and Butter is 102 Calories. So, if a recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons of olive oil and you cut it back to 1/2 Tablespoon, it saves almost 300 calories!!!. I know olive oil and butter both have health benefits, and I’m not suggesting totally cutting them out, just cut back and always measure how much is being used.

Hey, one of our favorite sayings is we didn’t gain weight by adding some fresh herbs to a dish. But toss in half a stick of butter (or even olive oil) to dishes and the pounds do start to pile on.

Easy Cheesy Stuffed Pork Chops

This is such an easy way to make a creamy cheesy pork chop. First thing to do is mix the cheese and herbs. Then roll the cheese with thin sliced ham. Wrap it in plastic wrap and then place the rolls in the freezer for at least 30 minutes. This keeps the cheese from melting away while cooking the pork chops.
