6 pork chops Boneless 1-1/2″ thick
4 oz Gouda Cheese
12 slices bacon thin or regular cut
1 green apple cored and sliced thinly
1 tbsp thyme chopped
Preheat the oven to *375°F. Spray a 9×13″ 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 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 20-30 minutes or until the chop registers 140°. Allow meat to rest for 10 minutes.
Remove the toothpicks and serve immediately.
