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!
Slice your apples and place them in the bottom of an 8×8 pan. I don’t know why I sliced mine so weird. I was in a hurry, haha.
Sprinkle the apples with two teaspoons of pack brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of ground sage.
Thinly slice the onions and place them on top of the apples and brown sugar.
Cube two tablespoons of butter and sprinkle it over the onions.
Wrap the bacon around the pork chops and bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes on on side, then pull the pan out flip the pork chops, then bake for another 15 minutes, until the bacon is lightly crisp.
Serve the pork chops over the apples and onions (make sure you spoon lots of the juices over the chops, too) and with roasted potatoes or vegetables.
- 3 medium-sized pork chops
- 9-12 slices of bacon (depending on how big the bacon is)
- 2 medium apples, sliced thinly
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground sage
- 1 large yellow or white onion, sliced thinly
- 2 tablespoons butter, cubed
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Slice your apples thinly and place them in the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Sprinkle two teaspoons of brown sugar and ½ teaspoon of sage over the apples, then top that with the sliced onions. Sprinkle the cubed butter over the onions.
- Wrap the bacon tightly around the pork chops. Place them on top of the onions and apples, and bake for 15 minutes. Take the pan out and flip the pork chops over on the other side, then bake for another 15 minutes, until the bacon is lightly crisp.
- Serve the pork chops over the apples and onions with plenty of juices from the pan. Pair with roasted potatoes (as I did) or some kind vegetable.
