These were a tasty meat dish I put together last night. I was in the mood for some pan fried pork chops and decided to create my own as I had a few ingredients that needed to be used up. 🙂 You could probably bake these for a healthier meal, but I just really wanted that crunchier taste this time! I was definitely in love with the outcome of this and had to exercise some major self-control not to eat more than 1 1/2 (hey, someone had to finish off the other 1/2 of my daughter’s portion, right?!). Some baked broccoli and hashbrowns paired up nicely as side dishes.
- 1 egg lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup crushed multi-grain crackers*
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup crushed french-fried onions
- 1/2 teaspoon thyme
- 8 thin-cut boneless pork chops thawed
- 1/4 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
*These are similar to something like saltine crackers or butter flavored crackers.
In a shallow bowl whisk together egg and milk. In another bowl combine crackers, cheese & french-fried onions. Season both sides of chops with thyme, salt & pepper. Dip in egg wash, then press to completely coat in crumb mixture.
Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat. Place chops in pan and cook for 5-8 minutes. Flip them over and cook another 5-8 minutes or done. It helps the breading to stay on when you don’t flip them right away. I tend to cook meat more on the long side of things since I’m always paranoid it isn’t cooked through. haha Try to save some for tomorrow!
