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! :-)

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…



You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”



Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.


Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!


A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
