Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops with Sweet Sliced Apples and Onions

Yet again, proof that bacon makes everything better, even other pork products. This is a great little dish to make after a long day of work or school when you want something that tastes much more difficult than it was to make. The bacon gives the pork chops tons of flavor, and the apples and onions are a wonderfully sweet and savory treat to serve the pork chops on top of, and pair nicely with the saltiness of the bacon wrapped chops. Kramer even went back to seconds when I made this, which is a true sign that it’s good because he’s rarely a seconds kind of guy. I hope you all enjoy these as much as we did; anyone who loves bacon should!

    WANT. Fantastic. The dish is heinous, wonderful while the photography does it more than justice. I did something similar with bacon but yours is more tasteful.

    Wow–this was an EXCELLENT recipe! used Fuji apples (and lots of them). I did the roasted potatoes and green beans. Everyone loved it. The 16 yr old, wolfed it down and was sad there wasn’t more!

    Thanks much!

    Made this for the family on Monday night and it was a big hit with everyone, including my four-year old. Thanks!!

  12. Kel says:

    Yummm! My son helped me make these (and kept referencing thisiswhyyourefat.com) . He had a blast helping and the meal was de-lish~! I used pork tenderloin cut into pieces and wrapped in bacon. It needed an extra 2 minutes per side but was ohhh sooo tasty!

    I’m gonna go look for new things on your site to add to my weeknight repertoire! Thanks!

  13. Ally says:

    I’m slowly getting addicted to your blog and your awesome recipe ideas! I’m going to the grocery store right now to make this tonight!

  14. Micah says:

    This was tasty! The one critique I had was that the porkchip wasn’t seasoned enough. Though everything else was gret, the pork chop missed a little something, like seasoning.

  15. [...] I obtained this recipe from Sydney of Crepes of Wrath.  [...]

  16. DB says:

    Hi Micah, I duplicated this recipe. Before I wrapped the chops in bacon I seasoned each with a little salt which went a long way. You can read about my experience cooking this dish here.

    Have not made this yet, but I am going to. My first thought on it was that I would brine the chops which I do all the time now for bar-b-quing pork chops. Makes a huge difference and in this recipe, will add the flavor that you all feel is lacking.

  18. Sarah says:

    This is yummy. Thank you.

  19. Maria says:

    Hi, great blog! I just want to know if I can do without the baking of the chops and frying it instead? Thanks!

    • Sydney says:

      Maria: Thank you! I think you might be able to, but I would definitely tenderize the chops, first, since they are a tougher piece of meat and it’s easy to overcook them in a skillet.

  20. Camille says:

    Just made these for dinner and they went over so well! I used Archer Farms pepper bacon from Target and it came out really well. I also adjusted the temperature to 375 because I used a glass pyrex dish for baking in, but then they needed a little longer because the chops were a little too pink. Everyone loved them though! Thanks for the great recipe!

  21. Rosie says:

    We liked the recipe, but the only down side is that the bacon took forever to get crispy. Thanks

    iM COOKING IT NOW WISH ME LUCK THIS IS FOR MY MARRIAGE PROPOSAL

    I made a few changes. I didn’t have ground sage so I made a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg. I followed the recipe to put I all together, but used maple bacon and sprinkled a little of the brown sugar mixture over the top as well. I had to bake it for about 45 minutes, instead of the suggested 30. It was spectacular! So glad you shared this recipe. Definitely a new favorite. And it is so simple to make.

    Did you know that Honey Baked Ham makes honey baked bacon? It is a game changer. We made this tonight with this new special bacon, additionally drizzling some maple syrup over the chops. This meal will likely be banned by the government, but it is SO amazing!
