Breaded Pork Chops

These traditional pork chops have a wonderful home-cooked flavor like the ones Mom used to make. The breading makes them crispy outside and tender and juicy inside. Why not treat your family to some breaded pork chops tonight? —Deborah Amrine, Grand Haven, Michigan

    Omigoodness, this is my new favorite recipe! I used Italian breadcrumbs, and added garlic powder & paprika. Fried them in olive oil for 7 minutes per side..they get a wonderful carmelization. I served them with mashed potatoes and gravy; the chops are so good, we didn't need the gravy.

    I used Italian bread crumbs instead of saltines, and olive oil instead of canola oil. Even though I only made four 1/2” thick pork chops, they took more like 7 minutes per side. You can also dirty fewer bowls by having a bowl for the egg/milk mixture, and put your chops on wax paper after, instead of using a second bowl for the seasoning. You can sprinkle seasoning directly on the pork (I usually use a spoon for even measuring). I give this recipe 3/5 stars because of all the alterations I had to make. Dinner was delicious, however. I had French fries with it. Yum!

    I made these last night and they were wonderful. An uncomplicated recipe resulting in moist tasty chops. I will make them again. I added additional spicing to the bread crumbs.

    I would use bread crumbs, but after *browning* the chops, put in the oven for 30 min at 350, yum

    Made these last night for supper. They were tender and very tasty. I sprinkled my chops with a little seasoned salt before breading. The crust was crispy and delicious!

    This is how my mom taught me to make them - it's the ultimate comfort food to me. Now I make them for my own family and they love them just as much as I did.
