Pork Chops and homemade Applesauce

Posted on: January 16, 2010

On Saturday night I made breaded pork chops for Mike and 2 friends that came over for dinner.  I used a mix of spices from Paprika to Oregano with Salt & Pepper and Parmesan Cheese .  I find that I like to use these combinations of spices as they have a Mediterranean influence.  The problem is that I just pour a little of this and some of this until I believe I have the right combination; however, i think the directions below will be a good guide to get you started  and then you can add more or less as you like.


1/2 to 1 cup dry breadcrumbs

1/2 tsp Paprika

1/2 tsp Oregano

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese – grated

4 Tbsp melted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix Breadcrumbs,cheese, paprika, oregano, salt and pepper in a shallow dish (I use a pie plate).  Once the butter has melted put in separate shallow dish.  Put Pork Chop in butter and thoroughly coat with bread crumb mixture.  Place in greased baking sheet.   Bake 30 minutes or until Pork Chop is tender.

**COOKS NOTE – I bought Frenched Pork Chops that were thick, so they required a few more minutes in the oven.   I served this with Homemade Applesauce, Creamy Parmesan Risotto and a nice mixed green salad with Blackberry Pear Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil.**
