Tasty Pork Nuggets

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min.


2-1/2 dozen

Through my 30 years of being married to a pork producer, I've come across quite a few wonderful recipes. These nuggets are fabulous finger food for snacks, lunches and dinners.


  • 1 cup cornflake crumbs
  • 1/3 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1 pound lean boneless pork, cut into 1-inch x 1-1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt


  1. Combine the cornflake crumbs, wheat germ, sesame seeds, parsley, paprika, mustard, celery salt, onion powder, lemon-pepper and salt if desired; set aside.
  2. Dip pork cubes in yogurt, then roll in crumb mixture. Arrange pork in a single layer on a baking pan coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 400° for 15-18 minutes or until juices run clear. For a crispier coating, broil for 2-3 minutes after baking.
