These stuffed pork chops are quick enough to make for a weeknight meal, but impressive enough for a dinner party. Add a side of mashed potatoes and green beans for a full meal.

HOW TO MAKE GARLIC PARMESAN STUFFED PORK CHOPS:

  • Start by making the filling. Combine the cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, cooked and crumbled bacon, green onion and garlic powder in a bowl.
  • Place 1 cup of flour in a shallow dish and 1 1/2 cups of Panko crumbs in another shallow dish. Lightly beat 2 large eggs in a shallow bowl.
  • Cut a pocket (as large as you can) in each pork chop and season with salt and pepper.
  • Stuff each pocket with filling. Press the seam to seal it as best you can. You can use a toothpick to secure it if you wish.
  • Coat the pork chops in flour, dip them in egg, and then press Panko crumbs into both sides. Sprinkle the coated pork chops with a little more salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and heat 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat in an oven-safe skillet.
  • When hot, add the pork chops and cook until golden on both sides.

  • Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook another 15 to 20 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.

TIPS FOR MAKING GARLIC PARMESAN STUFFED PORK CHOPS:

  • You can use either bone-in or boneless pork chops. Make sure you get thick-cut pork chops.
  • It’s very important not to overcook pork or it will be dry and chewy. Cook it just until it reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees F.
  • If you don’t have an oven-proof skillet, you can transfer the pork chops to a baking dish when you put them in the oven.

  1. I have made this so many times, we absolutely love it. Next time I’m going to try it with chicken! I always use a whole package of cream cheese instead of half because we love the extra filling, it’s the best part!

  2. The crust was excellent and browned perfectly. The stuffing didn’t hold any shape even with many toothpicks holding it in. Also it didn’t have much flavor. And we do love cream cheese which prompted me to try it.

  3. Awesome and super easy recipe! Have made this several times. I do take some liberties such as adding raw chopped spinach to filling and sub Boursin for cream cheese, if I have on hand. But hands down a go to recipe for a fast weeknight meal and impressive enough for special occasion events.

  4. This was excellent. I didn’t have any plain cream cheese so I used the onion chive cream cheese & added more green onion to it. It was great. Cud have eaten a bowl of just that mixture.

  5. Beverly Kurlinski

    Just loved this recipe. The filling is so much better than the traditional bread stuffing.

  6. Easy and delish! Made as is first time then added sautéed spinach to the stuffing goo the second. Wanted to something to cut the richness of the cream cheese a bit..
    This recipe is perfect as written but also an inspiration for stuffing pork chops!

  7. This is a new favorite. We loved it and chops were very moist. Yeah I browned them in the bacon ‘juice’. So flavorful..love the filling! Keeper!

  8. YUMMY!!! Will make this again with a bit of a tweak. The panko bread crumbs needs a pick me up! Maybe by seasoning the flour with garlic, salt and pepper may just do the trick. The cream cheese filling is a winner for sure! We all loved it.

    Reeeeally Good!! Hubs said its one of the best things I’ve ever made, and it was Restaurant Quality! I have to admit It was Delish and would be a great meal to make for guests. It’s not the fastest thing to put together and I feel like it would be a real task to make after work… but well worth the effort!

  10. Ever since discovering this magnificent recipe, we have put it on our permanent weekly rotation. It is unbelievably delicious! We coat it in panko crumbs and also sprinkle salt, garlic pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder on the chops before coating and also after coating, and we also brown them in bacon grease. We accidently used our oven’s air fry setting instead of the oven setting, and it turned out just as good. I have taken to stuffing the pork chops with the mixture, seasoning them, and then freezing them. That way most of the hard work is done. Thank you so very much for this amazing recipe!!!

    1. We did ours in our air fryer by mistake, and they turned out just as delicious as the oven. 🙂

    I made these pork chops and they were absolutely amazing. I hope you don’t mind but I jazzed it up a bit. First I sautéed onions and celery to add to the cream cheese mixture and since I had plenty of grease from the bacon I browned the breaded pork chops in that. It may not be good for the waistline but excellent for the tastebuds.
