Ingredients

  • 4 pork loin chops (about 1” thick)
  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 ounce parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. 1Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. 2Line an extra-large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. 3Rinse the pork chops with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  4. 4Place the pork chops in the center of the baking sheet.
  5. 5With a sharp knife chop the broccoli into 1” pieces. Place in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag.
  6. 6Drizzle the olive oil into the bag and add ½ tsp. salt, and black pepper, to taste.
  7. 7Dice the bacon strips into ½” pieces. Add to the Ziploc bag with the broccoli.
  8. 8Seal the bag and shake until the broccoli is evenly coated in the seasoned oil.
  9. 9Arrange the broccoli and bacon around the pork chops on the baking sheet.
  10. 10Add the panko, parmesan, garlic powder, onion powder, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of black pepper to a mixing bowl. Mix with a fork to combine.
  11. 11Place the butter in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on high for 30-40 seconds until melted.
  12. 12Pour the butter over the panko and Parmesan mixture. Mix with a fork until the crumbs are evenly moistened.
  13. 13Add the shredded cheddar cheese to the buttered bread crumbs, and mix with a fork to distribute the shreds.
  14. 14Using a spoon and clean hands, divide the panko and cheese mixture equally between each pork chop. Gently pat it into even layers over the tops of the chops.
  15. 15Transfer the baking sheet to the middle rack of the preheated oven.
  16. 16Roast for 15 minutes.
  17. 17Open the oven door. Using a rubber spatula, stir the broccoli and bacon.
  18. 18Continue baking for 7-11 minutes longer, or until the cheesy bread crumbs are golden, the bacon is crisp, and the pork reaches an internal temperature of 150° F.
  19. 19Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  20. 20Allow the pork to rest on the baking sheet for 3-4 minutes.
  21. 21Plate the pork chops with the broccoli and bacon, and serve.
