Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops



These pork chops have a crunchy, cheesy coating that makes them scrumptious!




This recipe is so straightforward and simple ~ you won’t believe how delicious the chops are until you try it.  The better your parmesan cheese, the better the chops.  Buy a wedge of the cheese and grate it yourself.  The chops are baked instead of fried, lessening the fat content.  Just be sure not to overcook them; bake until they are fork tender and golden brown. 

The flavors in these moist, savory pork chops would go with about any side dish you favor.  I served them with noodles and a green salad.  I would recommend this dish to any pork lover! 



Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg
2 teaspoons lemon juice
½ cup panko bread crumbs
¼ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
½ teaspoon dried oregano
½ teaspoon dried basil
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon seasoned pepper
4 center-cut loin pork chops, about ¾ to 1-inch thick



Method:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Spread olive oil over baking sheet.
Whisk egg and lemon juice to blend.
Combine bread crumbs and remaining ingredients, up to pork chops, on a plate.
Place pork in egg wash.
Dredge pork in crumb mixture, pressing to adhere.
Place on prepared baking pan.
Bake for about 20 minutes, turning once half-way through baking time.
Cook until they are fork tender and cooked all the way through, with a golden brown crust.


You will hear plenty of “Ummms” around your table, when you serve these chops!

I will be making this very soon; a great way to enjoy pork chop that I have in the freezer. I buy a big chunk of Parmesan at Costco. grate it and vacuum seal it. so much cheaper and tastier.

I love your version of Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops. I usually use mayonnaise instead of the egg wash. I will have to give it try!
