Breaded Pork Chops

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
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 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!Breaded Pork Chops
