I found this recipe on a German recipe website when looking for pork recipes. I love chicken cordon bleu, and thought this was a great twist on an old favorite. I assume you could use any cheese you liked in this recipe. Putting here for safe keeping.

I got some thickish pork chops and cut pockets in them, stuffed them with Gouda cheese and deli ham, breaded per instructions, and, oh, then we cook it in olive oil AND butter? How can it be anything but amazing? It all worked perfectly. Not clear what the bacon in the ingredients list is for, but I do know that the French, as well as Germans of the Rhein region, would pour brown gravy over this, so maybe that's what the bacon went into. Marvelous. Made for Zaar World Tour 6, Voracious Vagabonds.
