“My daughter and I made this recipe to create a special meal. I saw all the fat that went into it, and at my age, I can’t handle all those calories,” writes Betty from Sun City, Arizona. Our pros made a few changes to the recipe to improve its nutritional profile and found that Makeover Pork Chops with Gravy captures the home-style feel of the original recipe, but with less than half the fat.

Nutritional Facts

1 pork chop with 1/3 cup gravy equals 392 calories, 19 g fat (9 g saturated fat), 126 mg cholesterol, 799 mg sodium, 18 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 35 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and 1/2 cup milk. Combine the bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon parsley and thyme in another shallow bowl. Sprinkle pork chops with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dip chops in egg mixture, then crumb mixture.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook pork chops in 2 tablespoons butter for 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160°.

Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve gravy with chops; sprinkle with remaining parsley. Yield: 4 servings.
