Bacon-Wrapped Pork Chops

I saw this recipe on the side of the box of Good Nature Bacon we bought today at BJ's.

Bacon-Wrapped Pork Chops with Seasoned Butter

4 6-7 oz. Good Nature boneless pork loin chops, 1 1/4-inch thick
4 slices thick-cut bacon
Garlic-Mustard Butter

Garlic-Mustard Butter
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), softened to room temperature
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced

Garlic-Mustard Butter:
In a small bowl, stir together ingredients until well mixed.
Wrap in waxed paper to shape like a stick of butter.
Chill while pork is cooking.
When ready to serve, cut into fourths and top each pork mignon before serving.
Pork Chops:
Dry the chops with paper towels and season generously with salt and pepper.
Wrap a strip of bacon around each one, securing with a toothpick.
Cook as directed below to medium doneness. Remove toothpick; serve chops with a pat of butter.
  • Broiling: Broil 4 inches from heat source, 6-7 minutes. Turn and continue broiling to desired doneness, approximately 5-6 minutes for medium (160 degrees F.)
  • Pan-broiling: Heat grill pan over high heat; add chops, lower heat to medium-high and cook for 6-7 minutes, until nicely browned. Turn and continue cooking for about 5-6 minutes for medium doneness.
  • Grilling: Prepare medium-hot fire in grill; grill chops over direct heat for 6-7 minutes; turn and grill 5-6 minutes more for medium doneness.
