Pork Chops with Mozzarella & Prosciutto {Secret Recipe Club}

It's time again for the Secret Recipe Club!

Secret Recipe Club

This month, I was introduced to 'From Arepas to Zwetschgen'.  Good thing I'm typing the name instead of saying it because I just know I would butcher the pronunciation - however, I can tell you there are a LOT of drool worthy foods over there!

I was having a hard time choosing between the Refreshing Strawberry Buttermilk Cake & the Pork with Mozzarella & Prosciutto.  In the end, I decided upon the Pork since I already had everything to make it on hand.  I totally am going to make the Strawberry Cake soon though!!

Pork Chops with Mozzarella & Prosciutto

  • 4 thinly sliced pork chops
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • garlic powder
  • dried sage
  • 2 tablespoons of butter


Cook the pork chops in a hot skillet with the butter for a few minutes on each side, on medium-high heat.

In the next step, I was supposed to put the mozzarella on first, & then the prosciutto - obviously I reversed that on accident.  So, if you make the opposite of what I did!  Didn't impact the flavor,but the cheese being underneath the prosciutto binds everything together.

Then, I baked it in the oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.  Regardless of me layering the prosciutto & mozzarella backwards, the flavor was amazing - and the dish came together so quickly.

Her recipe called for 2 boneless pork chops, sliced in half through the middles, & then pounded thin - but since I had a multitude of thinly sliced bone in pork chops,I used those instead.  I also finished mine off in the oven & added a light sprinkling of Italian seasoning for color.  Check out the original recipe here.
