sage & sausage stuffed pork chops with caramelized jalapenos & onions

I have been wanting pork chops like CRAZY!

& when I saw some stuffed chops at the butcher this weekend it made me want them even more.

But $6 for a 1/2 lb pork chop is just not happening.

Sorry!

So, I made my own.

4 1-1/2″ thick pork chops
1 lb plain pork sausage – not the link kind, the ground kind – actually, maple would probably be good too!
1 tbsp sage (1 tsp per 1/4 lb of sausage)
1 large yellow onion, sliced thin – but not julienned
1 large fresh jalapeno, sliced
2 tbsp butter (for the onion & jalapenos)

First you gotta cut a little pocket into your pork chops like so.

Preheat your oven to 400F.

Next you want to season the chops.

Then throw the sausage on the stove & season with the sage.

Cook until done & drain.

Stuff your pork pocket with the sage sausage & bake at 400F until the internal temp reaches 190F.

In a new skillet, melt 1 tbsp butter & caramelize the onion.

Move to a bowl & cool slightly.

Then melt the other tbsp & caramelize the jalapeno.

When the pork chops are done, remove them from the oven & top with caramelized onion with jalapenos on the side.

I made collard greens to go with mine!
