Italian Breaded Pork Chops

I’m not ambitious enough to dig the gas tank for the grill out of the snow, or cook outside in the extreme cold.  Instead, I looked for some new “baked pork chop” recipes, and found one for Italian breaded pork chops.

I’ve never breaded a pork chop before; I don’t think I’ve even eaten a breaded pork chop.  Enter- adventure!

They were actually pretty fun to make.  Using our homemade breadcrumbs (from heels and bread about to go bad, then stored in the freezer), and adding our own blend of Italian seasonings, this turned out well!  It wasn’t as flavorful as I expected- I think next time I’ll add the garlic to the breading mix (rather than the browning oil), and add a bit of salt.

The seasoned, breaded pork chops smelled great as the browned on the stovetop, than baked in the oven.

Mark gives this a 3.5 out of 5.  Sean liked them, and ate 3!  Brenda really liked it, too!

We’ll definitely make this again.

We had baked potatoes, green beans, and applesauce with the chops.  Our stored potatoes are beginning to age.  We’ll need to dice, hash, and french-fry them and freeze them soon.
