Baked Pork Chops

On Friday, Jeremiah sent me a text saying his mom missed him (aww) and they wanted to come up on Saturday. Jeremiah suggested we have dinner and watch the Royals in game four of the World Series. I said, of course. This is the first time we would be able to host company for dinner. The big question was, “What would we make for dinner?” I knew I had to work until about 4:30PM on Saturday. That meant Jeremiah would have to do the grocery shopping and the bulk of the cooking. We decided to do pork chops – which we already had in the freezer. I suggested that we make fresh green beans and purple potato au gratin to go with it. Jeremiah’s dad is diabetic and Jeremiah is watching his carbs so they seemed like good side dishes.

I suggested we look for a pork chop recipe we could cook in the Crockpot or oven to save us some time. We flipped through my Pinterest and found this new recipe to cook. Dinner turned out great. I hope you enjoy it.

Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
2 tsp. Parmesan cheese
¼ c. plus 6 T. flour
3 large egg whites
3 T. Dijon mustard
lemon wedges

Line a 13 x 9 pan with foil and place a backing rack on top of it. In a shallow dish, pour ¼ c. flour. In another shallow dish, whisk egg whites and mustard. Then, whisk in 6 T. flour. Then, pour bread crumbs and parmesan cheese into a third shallow dish. Salt and pepper pork chops. Then, use tongs to coat both side of pork chops in flour. Next, coat pork chops in egg mixture. Finally, coat both side of pork chops in bread crumbs. Place pork chop on rack and repeat for three remaining chops. Bake at 425 degrees for 17-25 minutes – until meat temp reaches 150 degrees. Let it rest for five minutes before serving. Squeeze the lemon.

Notes:

  • The original recipe has a recipe has a recipe to make your bread crumbs. I posted what we did because it saved time.
  • We baked it for 25 minutes with the potatoes and it make out just perfect.
  • With the price of eggs, we used egg white substitute instead of wasting part of an egg.
  • We also used honey Dijon mustard.
