Bacon and pork – both tasty on their own, but put them together and you have a wowser of a dish.
These yummy pork chops are very easy to make and just plain delicious. They have a lovely blend of spices to flavor the pork and the medallion is wrapped in a slice of bacon for an extra bit of richness.
I used a Rosemary infused Olive oil to add a bit of extra flavor.
I like to bake my bacon in the oven on a wire rack. It allows the fat to drain off, and fat has to be a factor when combining bacon and pork together, doesn’t it? You end up with bacon that still tastes great but has so much less fat than if you had cooked it on the stove top in it’s own grease. No amount of paper towels can get rid of that grease like a wire rack in an oven does.
For this dish, I find it easiest to make half of the preparation earlier in the day and then pop these babies in the oven right before it’s time to eat. Makes the end of the day meal time much easier, so I can relax with my husband and not be tied to the kitchen when he comes home.
Serve with a tomato, mozzarella and basil salad for an easy and fast week night meal.
