You know how some days you just get tired of chicken?  And plain pork chops are so boring!  I decided to kick it up a bit and came up with these Bacon and White Cheddar Pork Chops.  These are very similar to my Alice Springs Chicken, but a tasty variation with sharp white cheddar cheese.  You could also easily throw these on the grill! Enjoy.

Bacon and White Cheddar Cheese Pork Chops

4 boneless pork chops, 4 oz each

1 can diced tomatoes, flavored with garlic and herbs, drained

1 package bacon pieces

1 wedge white cheddar cheese, shredded fresh

1 teaspoon garlic salt

2 teaspoons black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place pork chops in a single layer in a 13 x 9″ baking dish prepared with cooking spray.  Season chops with garlic salt and pepper.  Bake pork chops covered, for approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the pork chop.  The chops are done when a meat thermometer reads 145 degrees.  Remove dish and turn off oven.  Top with 1 tablespoon of bacon pieces, 1-2 tablespoons of tomatoes, and 1 Tablespoon of shredded white cheddar cheese.  Return to warm oven for approximately 5 minutes or until cheese just begins to melt.
