Pork Chops Cordon Bleu

I was planning to make Chicken Cordon Bleu, but I was missing a key ingredient - the chicken. What I did have in the fridge were some nice thick cut pork chops, so why not Pork Chops Cordon Bleu. This was such easy recipe to prepare for an amazing tasting dish. The pork chops were incredibly moist and tender. A slice of Canadian back bacon and a slice of Gruyere cheese in the middle, coated with a crispy crust of panko bread crumbs. YUM!

  1. Slice pork chops horizontally throughout the middle.

  1. HUGE hit with my family - even my kids who normally turn their noses up at pork chops! THANK YOU!

  2. This was a HUGE hit with my family! And my kids normally turn their noses up at pork chops! Thanks! (and you can make this without frying - just spray the breaded chops with some canola oil spray and then cook entirely in the oven, turning half-way through so they brown on both sides)
