    cela m”a l’air délicieux, je vais essayer de le faire, bien que je ne sache pas par quoi remplacer le colby jack;


    • Katie says

      Simon, je pense qu’il ya beaucoup de fromages, on pourrait utiliser pour remplacer le colby jack- havarti, gruyère, mozzarella, un cheddar doux, munster etc Tout fromage qui est doux et pas trop dur, ni trop souple serait bon.

    Made these tonight with 8 thinly slice boneless chops. So good!! Everyone gobbled them up. Thank you!

  5. Crittendon says

    You recipe calls for 4 garlic cloves but you said to rub the garlic onto the pork chops. Why use 4 cloves if your just using them to rub onto the pork chops. Sorry, I do not fully understand what your meaning. What do I do with the cloves after rubbing them into the chops

  6. Harriet Hopkins says

    I’m sorry but when I make this they will be in the oven longer than the time you stated. I know I’m old fashioned, but I’ve always cooked pork longer just to make sure. But these sure look good. Will be trying this week. Thanks.
