Dijon Pork Chops

Having lived in Dijon, France for nearly 6 months, I was exposed to numerous dishes using the city’s specialty: mustard. Although mustard is usually thought of as a ballpark staple, Dijon mustard is in a category of it's own. It bring an international gourmet flavor to any dish! To put a smile on everyones faces, whether at a fancy dinner party or family dinner, serve these Dijon Pork Chops with my delightfully cheesy and creamy Macaroni and Cheese (aka "Comfort Food Kicked Up").

Bake until the meant is no longer pink in center (approximately 8-10 minutes).
