Sausage-Stuffed Pork Rolls

Another Deen Brother's Recipes From The Road cookbook. So far I have found quite a few recipes to try from it:) This was supposed to be an appetizer but I only had some bigger pork chops so it was a full blown meal!
Pork rolls and roasted potatoes.

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. Next time I will try to grill them and see how that turns out:)
