Homestyle Breaded Pork Chops

  • Ingredients:
  • 4 boneless loin pork chops, about 5/8-inch thick
  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Pinch of garlic and/or onion powder (optional)
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tablespoons milk (or buttermilk)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

Combine the breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and other seasonings in a small bowl.

Whisk the egg and milk together in a shallow dish (a pie plate works well) and spread the breadcrumb mixture on a plate or sheet of wax paper.

Dip each of the chops in the egg mixture, then into the crumbs, pressing firmly to be sure they adhere well.

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the pork chops to the pan and cook until the crumbs are lightly browned and crisp, 3 to 3-1/2 minutes per side.

Serve with Quick Homemade Applesauce (recipe follows), Cottage Cheese and Chive Noodles and Maple-Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Bacon.

Quick Homemade Applesauce
  • Ingredients:
  • 4 large apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons water (plus more if needed)
  • Pinch of salt

Place the apples, butter, water and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples break down to a chunky, sauce consistency, 12 to 15 minutes. If needed, add more water to prevent the apples from drying out or sticking to the pan.
