"This recipe is fast and delicious! Family enjoyed it for a quick weeknight dinner. Would be good over boneless chicken too."
"This recipe couldn't be any quicker or easier to fix, as well as very good!! I had portobello mushrooms on hand so I sliced them and added to bacon and onion mixture."
"I added chopped bell pepper and jalepeno and cheese sausage, it was easy and very tasty."
"I made this tonight for my family because I needed something quick and they LOVED it !!! It's quick and easy but looks very elegant will definitely make again but next time I want to add mushrooms Thank you again for another winner!"
"I agree they would be okay to serve to company, they look elegant. I made it just the way the recipe said, however was concerned about the cooking time being 3-4 min. Each side with it being pork. I had thick chops so cooked them to 145 degrees but it took about 30 min. Also the juice in pan kept them from browning, so removed some juice to be able to brown them. Then returned juice to pan. All in all we enjoyed them, and they stayed moist."
"This recipe looks really good, but after reading the only review, I decided to jazz it up a little. Because of my kids' likes and dislikes, I cooked the bacon separately, then I cooked the onion with a chopped red pepper, and (also separately) I stir-fried mushrooms in olive oil. I let everyone choose toppings, along with their choice of Swiss, Provolone or Mozzarella cheese, and everyone was happy."
"The Swiss did not add anything. We just did not care for them."
