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. While the stuffing was delightful, i feel that the overall pork could have used a bit more seasoning. Wife really enjoyed it, so I will improvise next time and maybe use something other than just salt/pepper to enhance the pork. Overall we enjoyed it. Thank you.

  2. The recipe was out of the world. I changed it up a little, took two pork chops and put together with tooth picks and dipped and battered in flour did not have pinko flakes. Dish turned out wonderful. I made it for my father’s birthday. He was a chef growing up so very critical about everything I make. He loved the dish and gave me compliments on how everything tasted. So I will be making this recipe for my two grown children and their significant others. So there is a lot of cooking in my near future. Thank you for a delicious recipe.

  3. I’m going to try this recipe to night. Feeling a little adventurous, i’m going to add a small amount of spinach to the cream cheese, bacon, parmesan filling. Not too much. Wish me luck 🙂

  4. I never knew pork could taste this amazing. My wife is corn and wheat intolerant, we used her ingredients and they came out perfect.

  5. Easy recipe. I didn’t wait for my cream cheese to soften so I mixed the cream cheese mixture with my hand.
    This is delicious! My whole family loved it! I will definitely make it again.

  6. My first time trying this recipe for a pork chop because I wanted something different and I must say this was amazing. My husband said this is his favorite kind of pork chop now! Thank you for the recipe.

  7. First time trying this recipe and OMG! THIS WAS DELCIOUS. My husband said this is his favorite kind of pork chop now! Thank you for the recipe.

  8. I’m on a phone. Can’t really read the recipe because of the pop ups and video overlays and ads. Why should I be forced to watch videos unrelated to the reason I’m here? Why can’t I just see the recipe?

    I understand you need to make money, but at least make the ads and videos user-friendly. This website is a waste of my time and data.

      1. Hahahahahahaha! Recipe is great. I’m just happy to get free recipes online without paying a fortune for a cookbook or magazine.

  9. Amazing recipe! My hubby doesn’t care for stuffed pork chops that are sweet…these are all savory and perfect!!!! Will definitely be making these again. I shared them on my FB feed! 😊
