Author: Jaclyn


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 4 oz gouda cheese
  • 4 pieces crispy cooked bacon crumbled
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp Real Salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp coconut sugar


  • Start up your grill so that it's about 400º by the time you're ready to grill your stuffed pork chops.
  • Using a very sharp pairing knife, cut the first pork chop. Starting on the thickest side, cut from side to side. Cut into the chop, leaving about an inch on each side and creating a good-sized pocket, without cutting a hole (which is easier said than done, so cut carefully!).
  • Repeat with remaining pork chops.
  • Cut the gouda into thin slices, then divide into four even piles.
  • Combine the bacon crumbles and chopped basil, then divide into four even piles with the gouda.
  • Stuff those chops, each with a pile of your gouda and goodies 
  • Combine the salt and spices, then pat over each pork chop, coating each side.
  • Place chops, stuffed side up, on the grill, and grill for about 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160º.
