Hide Images
  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray, or line with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In thick side of each pork chop, cut a slit about 2 inches deep and 3 inches long to form a pocket (do not cut in half.) In small bowl, mix cheese, bacon and 4 teaspoons of the barbecue sauce. Spoon generous tablespoonfuls cheese mixture into each pocket; pinch edges of pork together, and secure with toothpick.
  • 3
    Sprinkle both sides of pork with salt and pepper. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in oil 1 to 2 minutes, turning once, just until lightly browned. Place pork chops apart on pan.
  • 4
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of pork reads 145°F. In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining barbecue sauce covered on High 45 to 60 seconds or until heated through.
  • 5
    Before serving, remove toothpicks from pork chops. Brush chops with warm barbecue sauce; garnish with green onion. Serve with mashed potatoes.

Expert Tips

  • Annie’s™ barbecue sauce comes in many varieties. Substitute with your favorite flavor.
  • For a zestier version, substitute cooked pepper bacon for regular bacon, or try shredded pepper Jack cheese in place of the Cheddar.
