I have an addiction to gooey cheese. I just can’t look away. And I can’t stop eating it. Many attempts to “eat healthier” have been squashed by that glorious, delicious, melted gooey cheese.

In addition to having that marvelous blanket of cheesy goodness, there’s even more deliciousness nestled underneath. Brown sugar, garlic, and butter make for an amazing flavor combo with this pork chop. Plus, the brown sugar melts and creates a crazy good sweet sauce you can pour onto the chop before serving.

I love how ridiculously easy this is to make! Rub chops with garlic and brown sugar, drizzle with melted butter, bake, top with cheese and let it melt. That’s it! Not only is it super easy, but it’s got only a few ingredients, most of which you probably already have on hand. I only had to buy the pork chops when I made this dish, and the rest was already in my kitchen. I love being frugal AND getting to eat amazing meals!

  1. I was determined to not cook tonight, even though I have thawed pork chops in the fridge. When I opened my email with this recipe, I took it as a sign that more good things would come my way if I changed my mind (and attitude). Not a lot of prep work? Check! Items already on hand? Check! Simple without a lot of work? Check! Thanks, Lindsay!

  2. Great recipe! My husband and toddler LOVED it, and they’re pretty picky. I used boneless chops, on the thin side, and cooked for about 12 minutes at 350. We also didn’t use butter, just because we didn’t have any, and they were still beyond delicious! The perfect balance of sweet and savory. We paired it with sauteed zucchini, and will definitely be making this a regular dish. Thank you!
