    I doubled this and made four chops. Easy enough to prepare. I found there was too much of the crumb mixture. I might experiment with different herb combinations in the future.

    Loved this! Was short on time and didn't have bread crumbs handy, so I skipped them and just sprinkled the chops with parmesan. A delicious change from the mushroom soup-topped pork or the sweet pork recipes.

    This is so yummy and my apartment smelled so good while the onion mixture was simmering. I was out of Parmesan cheese, so I used crumbled feta. I loved this! Next time I'll make it with the Parm but will make it again with the feta, too!!
