Pork Chops with Sage and Proscuitto



My husband is absolutely in love with this dish. Its a recipe I created a couple of years ago while browsing for ingredients in Whole Foods. I recently made it again last night and it was as good as we remembered. My favorite sides for this dish are corned muffins, roasted asparagus, butternut squash puree, couscous or steamed green beans.

Pork Chops with Sage and Proscuitto
Thick Cut Pork Chops
One Slice of Proscuitto per Chop
Fresh Sage Leaves
Grey Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
Garlic Powder
Smoked Spanish Paprika (I highly recommend Penzys)
Olive Oil

Place pork chops in glass baking dish. Place sage leaves on pork chops and season generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika. Place slice of proscuitto over chops and season with more pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 300 for about one hour and then increase heat to 350 until done.

My favorite sides for this dish are corned muffins, roasted asparagus, butternut squash puree, couscous or steamed green beans.

I made this a few weeks and LOVED it. My husband suggested substituting oregano for the sage leaves, so we are trying that tomorrow night. Thanks for the delicious, easy recipe!
