It was time to use or lose some pork chops I had in the fridge, so I dressed them in bread crumbs and Parmesan and baked them up. Necessity sure is the mother of invention. —Dee Maltby, Wayne, Ohio

"Good and moist. I did add more spices since I only had plain bread crumbs."

"This was very easy, quick and yummy. My only complaint would be that they did not brown well at all. I fixed that by running them under the broiler for a few minutes. I will certainly make them again."

"We liked this recipe very much - excellent flavor/tender. I used bone-in pork loin chops instead of boneless. Someone who had tried this already suggested using buttermilk instead of regular milk as the breading cheese mixture adhered better to the chop. Will definitely be doing this recipe again."

"Very easy and moist. I lined my baking pan with foil and sprayed it with olive oil. I think this helped them to stay moist as the juices didn't cook away. I would definitely make again."
