Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops With Rosemary
Wow! What a Monday. I got to know the med ball a little more intimately than I have ever cared to! Oh yea... the med ball got some lovin' today! Med ball push ups, med ball cleans, wall balls... we couldn't even get away with a 200m run without carrying that lovely med ball with us! Well, as much as I loved the med ball workout, I loved dinner tonight even more! The bacon was quite a treat... hope you enjoy!
5 (4 oz) pork chops, trimmed on all visible fat
5 sprigs rosemary
6 slices bacon (5 for the pork chops, and 1 for the sweet potatoes)
1 T fresh rosemary, minced fine
1 large sweet potato
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Trim pork chops of visible fat, and pound slightly. Season pork chops with seasonings, place sprig of rosemary on top and wrap with a piece of bacon. Place in a baking dish, and bake for 30-40 minutes. Broil pork chops for 5 more minutes about 6 inches from heat, to crisp bacon!
I served this with a sweet potato, sliced. It cooked for the exact same time as the pork chops. I sprayed the bottom of a baking pan with olive oil cooking spray, put in the sliced a sweet potato and seasoned them with ground black pepper, garlic powder, and chopped rosemary. I cooked a piece of bacon, chopped it up, and sprinkled that over the sweet potatoes before serving!
I also served this with some steamed asparagus. Very simply steamed for 4 minutes!
Such a good dinner! Hope you enjoy!
...We also served a side of fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries! :-)
