  • 6 (1 1/2-inch-thick) center-cut pork loin chops
  • 1 1/8 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons pepper

Preparation

  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in skillet. Crumble bacon, and set aside.
  2. Sauté apples, shallots, and ginger in hot drippings 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; stir in sage.
  3. Stir together apple mixture, bacon, and cheese in a bowl.
  4. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each pork chop, cutting to, but not through, other side to form a pocket. Sprinkle both sides and pocket of each pork chop with salt and pepper. Spoon apple mixture evenly into pockets, and secure with wooden picks.
  5. Cook pork chops, in 2 batches, in hot olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Place pork chops in a lightly greased roasting pan or large shallow baking dish.
