Ingredients

  • 2 large pork chops
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese crumbled
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/4 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1/4 pepper
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs parsley or green onions finely chopped

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, stir together bread crumbs, cheese, parsley or onion, salt, and pepper.
  • Add enough oil to create a stuffing like consistency, mixing well. Set aside.
  • Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Spread crumb mixture evenly on chops, and pat to adhere.  
  • Preheat the oven to 400F, and heat an oven-safe skillet to medium.
  • Add some olive oil to the skillet and heat.
