In this updated take on bacon-wrapped pork chops, prosciutto--an unsmoked Italian-style ham--replaces the bacon and holds in a creamy Gorgonzola filling. If you can't find prosciutto, substitute thin slices of deli ham or bacon. Pair the chops with Balsamic Greens with Plums (recipe follows).

Directions

  1. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Cook and stir onion and rosemary 6 minutes or until onion is soft. Remove onion mixture, cool. Stir in cheese.
  2. With small knife, make horizontal slit in each pork chop to create pocket, being careful not to cut all the way through. Fill with blue cheese mixture. Wrap 2 prosciutto slices around each chop to cover chop and opening of pocket; secure with toothpicks.
  3. Heat remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in same skillet over medium heat until hot. Cook pork 8 to 10 minutes or until pale pink in center, turning once. Remove toothpicks before serving.
  4. For Balsamic Greens with Plums: Whisk balsamic vinegar and Dijon mustard in small bowl; whisk in extra-virgin olive oil. Cut the 2 ripe plums into thin wedges; combine with mixed greens. Toss with enough dressing to lightly coat greens; serve with remaining dressing.

Great recipe, we love blue cheese and this pork chop was absolutely delicious, wrapping it with prosciutto added just enough saltiness.
