Last night was pork chop night; I was a mess last night and couldn’t blog.  I was so stressed over our sick German Shepherd – emergency vet visit – she stayed the night – they had to do blood work and radiographs – they’ll do more blood work today and possibly more radiographs – diagnosis:  autoimmune hemolytic anemia.  Very scary.  I’ve been praying to St. Francis non-stop and will continue to do so.  I’m still stressed over Shadow being at the vet and not knowing how she developed this and praying that she can recover; if she does recover, she’ll need special care for the rest of her life….please pray, would you?  I know that there are some out there who think, “She’s just a dog!” but she’s more than a dog to us, she’s our puppy girl and we love her so much.

Back to the chops.  My little brain came up with this idea; nothing fancy but we all enjoyed them.

Ingredients:

3 chops

1 cup flour, more or less

1 egg

1 cup milk

1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs, more or less

olive oil

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPreheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Place flour in one pie pan or on a plate; beat the egg and milk together in a shallow container; place Italian breadcrumbs on plate or pie pan.  Drizzle olive oil on cookie sheet.

Take chops, one at a time and dredge in flour (both sides).

where's the chop?Then, carefully remove from flour and put in the egg and milk and coat well.  Yep, this is the messy part.  Trust me, it will be worth it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen all chops have been taken care of, spray them with olive oil.  I use my mister.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPop into hot oven for 20 minutes.  At the end of 20 minutes, use a big spatula and carefully lift each chop, putting more olive oil on cookie sheet underneath where the chop will be replaced.  Return to oven for another 15 minutes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERACheck the internal temperature on the fattest chop; it needs to register at least 170 degrees F.  If they are finished, removed and hold for 5 minutes before serving.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI needed to tent mine with foil because my potatoes weren’t quite ready for mashing.  They sat and waited about 10 minutes but they were very moist and hot when we sat to eat.  Hubby really, really liked them and so did the picky teenager.
