Juicy flavorful pork chops blanketed with melted fontina cheese and covered with a garlicky Marsala mushroom gravy. An easy delicious home cooked meal with restaurant quality.
Inspired by Bonefish Grill, an upscale national chain who has outstanding food if you can afford the upscale part. But it’s not hard to make at home and it can all be done using just one skillet. Add some mashed potatoes and some green beans and you’ve got date night covered for under a twenty dollar bill!
Besides I’m always hearing someone say I’m getting so tired of eating the same ol’ thing week after week and eating out at the restaurant is killing our budget! If you think about it nine times out of ten, what you order out you can make at home for so much less it’s not even funny.
Watch the sale flyers or use the Flip app for sales, there’s always pork chops on sale for $1.99 a pound at least once a month. Buy a family pack and some freezer bags. Divide them up by however many you need for your family, 2 or 4 or whatever. Freeze that many in each bag, and they are ready to pull out of the freezer and place in fridge to thaw the night before cooking. If it’s too much to plan a week ahead for meals, start by planning a day ahead. It will help make things go a little bit smoother. If you like this Fontina Pork Chops with Marsala Mushroom Gravy, I bet you’ll like my Chicken Marsala and maybe even French Onion Pork Chops which also have a nice cheesy blanket as well.
I know it’s not easy, I raised three and worked full time. Back to school time is hectic getting everyone back in a routine is the most important to set up a successful school year. So be sure you take time to breath and relax and spend time with your honey because that’s the foundation of a truly happy family, your kids will mirror what they see. So if your irritated and stressed out that’s going to trickle down and come right back around in a vicious circle. So just like the gas tank can’t run on empty, neither can people. Take time to enjoy each other’s company and talk about happy times to keep the focus on the positive. For what it’s worth, God gave us two ears and one mouth, to listen twice as much as you talk, that’s what I was always told; not saying that’s what I always do, but it is food for thought!
On that note, hopefully you get a chance to have an enjoyable evening, a couple glasses of wine and an outstanding dinner!
