Stuffed Pork Chops

I misnamed this blog. I should have called it Ingredient Lists and Romance. There's no alliteration, but it's more honest. I've tried to make myself measure ingredients (but not very hard). I mean, why waste all that time if the recipe turns out to be a dud?

This one turned out great, though, so here goes:

Thin-cut, boneless pork chops
Thick slices of bacon -- one per chop
Onion, chopped fine
Celery, chopped fine
Spinach, chopped
Other finely chopped veggies, such as bell peppers (red or yellow add color), cabbage, mushrooms, etc. Whatever you have that needs using up!
Grated sharp cheddar or other sharp cheese
Butter, ghee, or oil (I used ghee)
Salt, pepper, oregano

Saute the onion and celery in the butter. Add the other chopped veggies and saute. The spinach should be added last, as it wilts very quickly. Add the grated cheese and stir until it melts. Season to taste and remove from the heat.

To assemble: Spread the slices of bacon on a baking pan. Put a pork chop on top of each slice, right in the middle. Divide the cooked veggies among the pork chops. Fold the pork chops up and wrap the bacon over them to hold them closed.

Bake at 350 degrees F. until done. I forgot to record how long it took (Can you tell I will never write a cookbook??) but I think it was 25 to 30 minutes. They tasted absolutely fabulous. :~))
