Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Sauce

Sometimes a sauce is just a sauce, but with these tender chops, it really makes the dish. If you like a little spice, mix a pinch of nutmeg with the black pepper before you sprinkle it on the meat. —Kathleen Specht, Clinton, Montana

    I have made this several times. I usually only have regular onion on hand so I use that instead of the green onion. I have also never used the tablespoon of chicken broth, just so i didn't have to open a brand new can for that little bit. It still turns out great! My husband loves it. A recipe we go to again and again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed these pork chops. They were easy to make. I made the sauce before cooking the chops and kept it warm. We loved the taste.... Makes an elegant presentation. I agree, the nutmeg was a great addition to the pepper.

    Had taken out some pork chops for dinner for my husband, but he had to leave to work early. He's a plain guy, nothing on. So I ended up making them just for myself, and I wanted something different than plain. Found this recipe, was this ever good and easy. Will make it again.

    Deceptively simple to make and delicious. Easy enough for a week night dinner but fancy enough to serve to company. Im adding this recipe to my do again list.
