We don’t eat a lot of pork chops so I wasn’t really sure how to fix them so they wouldn’t taste like rubber, then I found this quick and easy recipe for Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops from the Food Network website – Yum! It was really easy and even though the recipe says to use Italian bread crumbs, I used plain and added some Garlic Herb seasoning and it was delicious! Also, I cooked these on a lower heat than in the recipe and they turned out great (some of the other reviewers mentioned the heat was too high). Oh, I also didn’t dredge in cheese before egg, I did cheese mixed with bread crumbs after egg.

Below is Copied and pasted from the website.


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 3/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan
  • 4 (1/2 to 3/4-inch thick) center-cut pork loin chops (each about 10 to 12 ounces)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


Whisk the eggs in a pie plate to blend. Place the bread crumbs in another pie plate. Place the cheese in a third pie plate. Sprinkle the pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chops completely with the cheese, patting to adhere. Dip the chops into the eggs, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere.


Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown and the center reaches 150 degrees, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to plates and serve with lemon wedges.
