Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 25 mins

Total Time: 40 mins

Servings: 4


  • 4 boneless pork chops (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (113 grams)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (25 grams)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (15 grams)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (30 ml)
  • Special notes: You can use bone-in pork chops if preferred. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to incorporate all the flavors.
  3. Using a sharp knife, make a deep pocket in each pork chop by cutting horizontally into the side of the chop. Be careful not to cut all the way through.
  4. Stuff each pork chop with the cheese and herb mixture, evenly distributing it among the chops. Press the stuffing gently to secure it inside the pocket.
  5. Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the stuffed pork chops and sear them for about 2 minutes on each side until they are nicely browned.
  6. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake the pork chops for about 20 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C). Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the pork chops.
  7. Remove the skillet from the oven and let the pork chops rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a tender and juicy chop.
  8. Serve the Cheese and Herb Stuffed Pork Chops hot with your favorite side dishes, such as roasted vegetables or mashed potatoes.
