6 4oz. boneless, center-cut pork chops
12 oz. sweet or hot Italian sausage
3 oz. provolone cheese, cut into strips
6 fresh sage leaves
Salt and freshly ground pepper
With a meat mallet or heavy pan, pound each of the chops until very thin. Remove the casing from the sausage and crumble into a skillet. Cook the sausage over medium heat about 10 mins or until no pink remains.
Preheat the broiler. Spoon about 2 T. of cooked sausage onto each pork chop.
Top each with one slice of cheese and one sage leaf.
I used ground sage because I forgot to get the leaves:)
Roll each chop around filling and secure with a toothpick. Season the rolls with salt and pepper.
Place pork rolls in a pan with olive oil over medium high heat and cook for 5 to 6 mins on each side. To serve remove toothpicks and slice. You could also grill or broil these rolls.
