Let it be known, I love pork chops. LOVE them. I get it from my grandmother, honestly, but I love them so much that I almost always buy the bulk family value pack from our grocery store. I mean, really, who DOESN’T need a dozen pork chops for 2 people?! I love the look of a bone-in chop, the sizzle of a good sear, their flavor, their versatility, and how budget friendly they are… and because I love them so, I am always looking for a new way to prepare them. Last week’s culinary adventures may have led me to my favorite chops yet- Cheesy Crusted Chops.
2 minutes of prep.
On your table in 20 minutes or less.
It doesn’t get any easier than that!
Cheesy Crusted Chops
(serves 2, but is easy to double, triple, or make for a crowd!)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
2 bone in chops
Combine equal parts breadcrumbs and shredded cheese. Add small drizzles of olive oil and mix with fingers until the mixture is a moist paste-like consistency. (Almost like a sugar scrub?) Divide the mixture evenly on the top of 2 chops and pat down gently with hands. Toss into the oven @ 425 for 18-20 minutes.
simple. as. that.
