Cajun-seasoned pork cutlets stuffed with Sargento® Sliced Gouda Cheese and topped with sautéed onions create layers of meaty and rich flavor, with melted cheese oozing out of the middle with every bite. Serve these pork chops with any side dish and they’ll be sure to please!

Ingredients
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. butter
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/4 tsp. Cajun seasonings, divided
  • 4 bone-in center cut pork chops, about 1 inch thick
  • 4 slices Sargento® Sliced Gouda Cheese
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
Directions
  1. Heat oil and butter in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet (wrap handle in foil) over medium-high heat. Separate onion slices into rings; add to skillet. Cover; cook 3 minutes or until onions are wilted and beginnning to brown. Reduce heat, stir onions; cook uncovered 10 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring frequently. Stir 1/4 tsp. of the Cajun seasonings into the onion; transfer to a small bowl and cool at least 5 minutes. (Do not wash skillet.)
  2. Cut a horizontal pocket in the side of each pork chop (or ask your meat retailer to do this for you). Spoon 1 Tbsp. of the onion onto center of each slice of cheese. Fold cheese over onion; stuff in pocket of pork chop and pinch edges together to close pockets. Sprinkle remaining 1 tsp. Cajun seasonings and oregano over chops.
  3. Place same skillet over medium-high heat. Add chops; cook 3 minutes per side or until browned. Spoon remaining onion over chops. Transfer skillet to a preheated 375°F oven. Bake until chops are no longer pink in center, 8 to 10 minutes depending on thickness of chops. Drizzle any juices from skillet over chops.
