  • 4 oz Gouda Cheese Crystal Farms® Cheese Brand
  • 12 slices bacon thin or regular cut
  • 1 green apple cored and sliced thinly
  • 1 tbsp thyme chopped
  • 18 toothpicks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to *225°F.  Spray a 9x13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Make a deep slit into the side of each pork chop being careful not to go through the sides or bottom.
  • Slice the apple into 1/8" pieces, one for each chop
  • Cut the Crystal Farms Gouda Cheese block into 1/4" slices, two for each chop.
  • Sandwich each apple slice with cheese slices and insert it into the chop and sprinkle with thyme.    
  • Wrap each chop with two slices of bacon tightly.  Secure with three toothpicks and place them into the pan.
  • Bake for 60-70 minutes or until the chop registers 140°.  Allow meat to rest for 10 minutes.  Remove the toothpicks and serve immediately.

Notes

*Chops can be cooked at 350° for 40-45 minutes as an alternative to the slow cooking time.
