This is my first review, so bear with me! I used chops that were about 1.5 to 2inches thick firstly... Filled them with an Italian blend cheese and an Italian blend breadcrumb. Seasoned the outside of the chop with a mediterranean blend seasoning, then seared both sides and stuck in the oven with more cheese topping it. The result? Tender, tasty pork with a nice crusty top! All variations should yield a delicious taste, and the cheese inside will NOT run out bc the breadcrubs hydrate bc of the cheese while baking! I will try marinating the chop next time, or using fresh herbs for a different flavor! Do not overcook your chops! Great recipe! Thanks! Update: common sense tells you to season your meat to your liking..., the recipe is a suggestion for a meal that works as is. Consider before rating negatively. It's an awesome chop!Read More

EXTREMELY moist, wonderful flavor! I can not give this enough stars! Do NOT skip the skillet browning...that adds so much flavor (3 min per side on med-high creates a very brown chop & sealed in seasoning--but use EVO not cooking spray). I did use dried 1/4 t thyme & 1/2 t parsley in the stuffing as I did not have fresh. As another reviewer said, the crushed seasoned croutons do prevent the cheese from cooking out. Use 3/4 - 1" bone-in chop (as called for) because the bone also adds flavor & helps with sealing in the stuffing. Tip: partially freeze chop to aid in slicing the pocket--fillet knife works well. Since I used a 1" chop, I did bake the full 10 minutes--just make sure juices are clear.
Very good! I used boneless pork chops that were about 1 1/2" thick. I sliced them in the middle to create a pocket, and then I hammered them with a meat tenderizer before stuffing them. I also added a little granulated garlic to the cheese and bread crumbs. I browned them in the skillet and then put them on a baking stone in the oven. I will definitly make this again!
wow sooo flavourful! Quick and easy!! tiny changes.. i omitted the bread crumbs entirely. i bought butterfly sliced bone less chops. mixed the cheese and fresh parsley together and sprinkled the mixture on each chop and then closed them up like a sandwich. then i patted one side of each chop with the paprika,salt, pepper mix (but also added 1tsp of italian dried herbs). amazing!! my husband just said that they are the best pork chops he's ever had! served with rice and a salad.
I liked these. We skipped frying and put them straight in the oven and increased the cook time a couple minutes.
This was good as written, however, i did have to add spice to our tastes, next time I will not stuff the pork, i will just add this to the top of some back pork chops ects.
These were fabulous! Quick and easy, but they tasted delicious. We made them just as the recipe indicated (except for we used boneless pork chops), and I don't think I would change a thing! I think the thyme gave them a really nice flavor, so I would recommend using that over the parsley.
This was a huge hot for the family. I used sweet paprika instead of the the hot variety. In the end, I ended up printing this one off for one of our guests.
I used Zateranes Chicken Planko crumbs for a cajun Flair and the family LOVED these. I also used a little extra cheese and sprinkled with Basil instead of parsley. Delicious and very quick meal!
These were really good. However... if you're using packaged croutons as I did, cut back on the salt. I also used fresh sage as well as the thyme and parsley (because my wife said it would be good, so I stuck it in there). Rather than frying them first, which I thought would be a problem, I put them in a cast iron skillet and baked them in the oven for about double the cooking time and it worked out wonderfully. They turned out nice and brown. I spend a lot of my working hours writing reports, so when it comes to writing recipe reviews I am a MOFW (Man of Few Words). So suffice it to say, dinner was really good (look at my empty plate).
Made it as instructed, and it's a 5 for the ease of preparation and simplicity. I'm rating it a 3 b/c made as instructed it lacks flavour. The seasoning did nothing to enhance the flavour. I will make it again, but I plan on changing it...at the moment I'm thinking of adding in fire roasted bell peppers, minced garlic, rosemary to the stuffing. For the seasoning, I think I'll do a mix of italian seasoning, garlic powder, and black pepper....will update when I get it tweaked....
This was absolutely delicious! I never imagined that stuffed porkchops could taste so good. This is going into our meal rotation.
Absolutely amazing. My children gobbled it up. I used the seasoned bread crumbs and I used a colby jack cheese instead of the 6 cheese blend. I really loved the fact that it was all made in one skillet. I will be making this over and over again!
GREAT recipe! Simple and tastes amazing.
Okay, so this was definitely a TASTY recipe, no doubt about that. It just felt like it was missing something. I used chops that were about 1.5". I waited until they were just slightly frozen, cut the pocket, and pounded them to about 3/4". I used homemade italian croutons to stuff the pork chops. Instead of doing thyme or parsley, I used both, and I added some garlic, as well. For the outside I just used seasoning salt (kill two birds with one stone). I used my Misto instead of cooking spray (which I would highly recommend if you have a hard anodized pan). I cooked in the oven for 8 minutes, then added the cheese to the top, and then stuck it back in under the broiler for about a minute to get it nice and bubbly. I think what it was missing was spaghetti sauce and noodles! It was very quick and easy to make! I will make it again (with a few changes).
Seasoned the pork chops a little different. Used paprika, garlic, vinegar & pepper. Was very, very good. Although I'm not sure if I cooked it completely correct, my cheese seemed to not stay in the pork chops. :( I'll keep trying. :P
I thought they were pretty good. Not too hard to make. Next time I will use less parsley.
This was delicious! My husband and sister both loved it. I made it with fettuccine and Alfredo sauce. I didn't add the the pepper to mine but they definitely loved the extra spice.
This was a great option for pork chops! I followed the recipe to a "T"; only omitting the suggestion to brown the chops first. Simply, I was running low on time and wanted to bake quickly. They turned out moist, tender, and flavored nicely! I hadn't tried cutting a slot in the chop to stuff it before, only making a stuffed chop by folding it around the stuffing and securing with a toothpick. This was a thicker, heartier option!!! Will certainly try this again!
VERY flavorful - perhaps too flavorful? Maybe use less thyme in the future
Very good! I wasn't able to get the bone in center pork chops, but I got boneless ones and they worked just as well. My family loved it! Thanks for sharing!
Outstanding!!! I added minced garlic to the cheese mixture, otherwise I followed the recipe.
Good. Needs a little more seasoning.
this is very good. I loved this recipe. Its very filling and it had low calories. :) It is something i would make over and over again! :)
used my usual pork chops and spooned the cheese mix over the top then put another layer of pork chops. Wanted to use up mozz cheese, so I added a little grated parm and some italian seasoning. about 1/4-1/2 tsp dried thyme and some dried parsley. Baked about 20-25 min but it needed a little longer. Great!
I was looking for a chicken recipe and came across this one. It was very yummy! I made spaghetti on the side, and it was a great italian meal.
Very yummy!! I loved this recipe. I didn't have the sargento cheese mixture so I made my own with what I had. I did have almost all of them so maybe that's why it came out wonderful. I cut my chops to about 1.5 inches thick but probably could have went a little less thick. I would make this again in a heartbeat!.
It was just ok. I was not that impressed to give 5 stars. I will not be repeating this recipe.
Great Recipe! Even my husband liked it and he doesn't like any thing... the only thing i did different was instead of the italian bread crumbs i used crushed stove top.
It really doesn't need the inside stuffing, the seasoning and cheese on top of the pork chops is great alone. I used season salt on one side, and Emeril's Essence on the other.
This was a very tasty way to prepare pork chops!! Since my porckchops were a little too thin for stuffing, I just threw the stuff on top of them while they baked. I didn't have the Italian cheese, so I grated some muenster and then added shredded parm/romano. I used croutons from a bag, and they had loads of flavor. This "stuffing" on top of them basically made them end up tasting like they were breaded. I will definitely make these again!!
This recipe was easy and quick! It was my first time cooking pork chops, and these turned out tasty. However, the thyme flavor was slightly overpowering. Next time, I will drastically reduce the amount of thyme/parsley in the stuffing. Overall, excellent recipe!
This was great! Used regular paprika (didn't have smoked) and added garlic because what isn't better with garlic?!
alright, that's all
This recipe is quick & easy and your whole family will love it! I cooked it exactly as the recipe said, except at the end I had some left over crushed croutons so I combined them with some Italian style bread crumbs, sprinkled over the chops and broiled for a few minutes for a flavorful, crunchy topping. Served with garlic bread and noodles, my family loved it! Thank you!
This was a decent recipe but I added things to it to make it better. The thought of just spices and cheese sounded boring. Therefore, my rating is based on the recipe before the additions I made.
first time I made these, the family said they came out perfect. Will definitely make a part of these a part of the dinner line-up
These were very good. The key really is to not overbook them. I used Old Bay seasoning and the flavor was perfect!
This was great! I suggest using thick boneless chops, or thick bone in.
I made this tonight but I used boneless center cut chops... I seasoned it a little different adding so garlic and taking out the thyme. I marinated the chops over night in olive oil and minced garlic... it was amazing!
This was a very good recipe and cooked perfectly. I used boneless chops and it still came out very good. The mix of the cheeses was a nice switch to regular pork chops.
5 Stars!!! I found this last minute and decide to make it. My husband is a VERY picky eater and he had seconds! I basically did everything the same as called for in the recipe, except for the seasonings (only because I didn't have them on hand)! I've recieved a request to make this again and again!!!
Very, very good and very easy. I only used three pork chops cut 1 1/2 in. thick. I used 3 tablespoons of garlic butter flavored croutons and one tea thyme to our preference mixed with the cheese.
