First of all, I would like to thank you all for the Happy Birthday wishes for Gregg. He was very touched and enjoyed reading everyone's comment. You all added a very genuine warmth to this special milestone.
Now for the recipe, a simple but very tasty way to cook pork chops. It came from "Just A Pinch" by Janet. You can find her recipe here. Thanks Janet!
Parmesan Baked Pork Chops
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes
4 boneless pork chops about 1/2 inch thick
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 cup Italian Breadcrumbs (I used a blender to crumble a day old roll and added a good dash of Italian Seasoning)
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
On a plate combine the last 4 ingredients. Rub the pork chops with olive oil and dip each one into the cheese/breadcumb mixture. Press the mixture over the pork chops to coat really well and completely covered.
Line a pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray.
Place the pork chops on the pan and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 to 45 minutes.
I forgot to take a photo the first night, and can't remember now what we served it with, but we must have had potatoes for one side dish. The next day we shared the leftover pork chop for brunch, with leftover potatoes that I sauteed in a smidgen of olive oil, a fried egg and a broiled tomato (not shown), also a little Branston Chutney. This second pork chop dish was delicious.
