Apple Bacon Pork Chops

Posted on


I love fall! I know I’m not the only one…every blog I have been reading lately seems to talk about this love of fall. If I let myself think about the fact that fall is a pre-cursor to winter, I start to get depressed. So that’s why i prefer to live in the here and now, and in present time…fall is awesome! You get to change your wardrobe, decorations, and even your cooking.
I love fall recipes! Pumpkin, apples, cinnamon- these are all favorite cooking ingredients for me. This recipe mixes apples with bacon!!! Shut the front door! I have yet to find a recipe that includes bacon that I didn’t like really…

Apple Bacon Pork Chops

Ingredients:

  • 4-6 pork chops
  • thyme
  • garlic powder
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • maple syrup
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • cinnamon
  • 1 lb bacon, cubed
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 apples, peeled,cored and thinly sliced

Directions:

  1. Sprinkle pork chops with thyme, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper (I didn’t measure just sprinkle on top of all the chops)
  2. Drizzle maple syrup and olive oil over the chops (again, I didn’t measure). Then rub on the chops.
  3. Let chops marinade for at least an hour
  4. Heat grill to medium. Once heated, place chops on grill
  5. While chops are on the grill, cook up your sliced bacon until it is almost crispy.
  6. Add shallots and cook until soft and translucent. Then add your apple slices and cook until soft.
  7. Serve pork chops with apple/ bacon mixture on top. Yum!
