Tender Baked Pork Chops



These were some of the best pork chops we’ve ever eaten!




We wanted baked “breaded” pork chops for dinner; however, I was out of eggs to whip up and dip the chops into before cooking.  But, I did have a container of Egg Beaters Southwestern Style in the refrigerator. 

The egg beaters include red and green peppers, onions and a variety of spices ~ a great combination that I will be using again for this type of meat dish.

After the egg dip, the pork was dredged in a mixture of Penzeys Ozark Seasoning, panko bread crumbs, and a little garlic powder, salt and seasoned pepper.

They slowly baked into some of the best pork chops ever!  They were tender, moist and lip-smacking good!  Delicious! 


Tender Baked Pork Chops

Ingredients: 

4 boneless pork chops
1 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup Egg Beaters Southwestern Style
1 teaspoon Penzeys Ozark Style Seasoning
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Pour olive oil onto baking sheet, tilting to cover entire pan.
Pour Egg Beaters in shallow bowl, and dip pork chops, coating both sides.
Combine remaining ingredients on plate, and dredge pork shops.
Place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake uncovered for 1 hour, or until tender, flipping once after baking 30 minutes.
Serve


ENJOY!

  1. I love pork chops but shy away because they are usually dry. These look delicious! Alas, we have no Pensy's nearby. I love their spices and probably should look into ordering some--especially their blends.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  4. Ooh, they do look moist and delicious. I've never tried flavored egg beaters. I wish we had a Penzy's nearby, consequently I don't buy from them very often due to their shipping. My FIL could never been without his Penzys. Maybe I should rethink the shipping.

  5. I am so lucky to have a Penzeys store nearby! I've love to visit their headquarters here in the Milwaukee area one day. I'm going to try this, Pam. My husband is always asking for pork chops and I hate chewy chops :)

  9. Pam, We love breaded pork chops...baked slowly in the oven. We rarely order pork chops in restaurants because they overcook them. We use Italian bread crumbs and spicy Panko...plus my better half spices them up. Your version looks great too... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  11. Hi Pam,
    Trying to always catch up.....This recipe is outstanding...now aren't you glad that you ran out of eggs...sometimes things happen for a reason and this was a perfect one...Sometimes when I run out of eggs and need the breading to coat the chops in or cutlets, I use a little water, or even sour cream. I love it when you have to make due with what you have, sometimes you can create a fabulous new recipe without even trying... Great job, looks so yummy..Thanks for sharing...have a good rest of the week...

  13. Will check online for the Penzey's, you've got me curious! Hope all is well. We're up to our necks, well the corgis are, in mud here due to the thawing. Worst time of year for backyard paws! Will make an appt. for a carpet cleaning once we have grass! Lovely pork chop recipe to give a whirl. Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Corgimama! All is well here. And I can imagine with your sweet Corgis! The ground is still snow covered here, but I remember from our dachshund, how it was this time of year, muddy! I'm still working on that Corgi thing. Here's to green grass, and give the corgis a treat! :-)
