Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops

I had lots of fresh veggies for dinner and the husband said he needed some meat to go with it so why not pork chops.  I am always looking for new ways to make pork chops.  The little center cut boneless chops are really good to fix and lean.  I guess I bought into the Pork the other white meat slogan.  This was the quickest, easiest way to fix them.  Maybe not the healthiest but they were good.
I know the veggies look the best but the chops were a nice addition too.  These were all fresh veggies I picked up from Sprouts last week.  The corn was wonderful.
 Two things.  That is all you need.  My husband said maybe a little bit of BBQ sauce on top of the chop before wrapping in bacon might be good too.  I might try it next time.
 Take the chop and wrap two pieces of bacon around it.  If it is thin it might not take two.
 The recipe did not say to do this but I thought it would help with drainage.  Lay the chops on a rack that has been placed in a cookie sheet.  Line the cookie sheet with foil for easier clean up.  It did help.  The chops were not cooking in the grease.  It did smoke some in the oven though.  Place them in a preheated 400 oven and bake for 30 minutes.  If they are thicker chops maybe a little bit longer.  You want them to cook through.  Then turn the oven to broil and cook for 5 more minutes to crisp up the bacon.
 I'm sure you can smell the bacon on these.
Serve with some healthy veggies and you won't feel guilty about the bacon.
