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!
