Million Dollar Pork Chops feature a baked potato-like topping with bacon crumbles, shredded cheese, and green onions; a savory symphony that is lip-smackingly good. The cream cheese and mayonnaise add the fat that’s key in making this dish worth a “million dollars.” You’ll never make drab and tasteless pork again when you can have a Million Dollar Pork Chops in under 30 minutes. The time you save on making something this delicious is also worth a million bucks.
IngredientsFor the topping: • 1 (6 ounce) package cream cheese, softened • 1/4 cup mayonnaise • 1/2 cup bacon crumbles, cooked and crispy (about 8 slices) • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded For the pork chops: • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil • 2 1/2 pounds pork chops, boneless • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic Optional garnishes: • crumbled bacon • green onions
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, mix the mayo, cream cheese, bacon crumbles, green onion, and 1/2 of the cheddar cheese, until fully combined. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat on the stove-top.
Season each side of the pork chops with the pepper, salt, and garlic.
Once the oil is hot, cook the pork chops for 1 minute on each side.
Pour the cheese mixture evenly over the pork chops.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 of the shredded cheese over the top, then transfer the skillet to the oven.
Bake until the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145 degrees F, or until the pork chops are cooked fully through, about 10-14 minutes.
Garnish with additional green onions and bacon, then serve immediately.
