Frying Chops

Parmesan Encrusted Pork Chops

I was looking for something quick and easy for dinner so I thought I’d make some sort of pork chops.  I had some left over Parmesan cheese that I figured I should use up so off I went to fry some pork chops!

Parmesan Encrusted Pork Chops

They turned out pretty well, the pan wasn’t hot enough at first so a little bit of the crust stuck to the pan …

Parmesan CheeseI grated about 6 ounces of Parmesan cheese using my multi-sided cheese grater.

Added Almond FlourAdded 3/4 cup of almond flour along with some salt and pepper.  Mix this all together.

Dipping SetupWhisk two eggs into a shallow bowl.  Setup your dipping stations!

Dipped Pork ChopsHere are some of the dipped chops.  I had a whole large pack from BJ’s, something like 13 or 14 of them and I cooked them all up at once for the week.

Frying ChopsI had to fry the chops in batches of three.  I put some bacon fat in the bottom of the pan and sizzled away!  Make sure to get the pan pretty hot or else it will stick.  I pan fried these for one minute each side and then put them in a pan in the oven until complete.

Pork Chop MealHere is the finished, plated meal.  I served it with Creamy Cheesy Spinach. There was a little bit of egg left over and some cheese / almond mix left over so I combined them and fried it in the same pan.  It yielded the “thing” on the right and I think I may have accidentally discovered a pretty amazing creation.  It was like moist fried cheese!  Note that you can adjust this for less meat, just use one egg, 3 oz of cheese and 3/8 almond flour.  If there is left over just combine the eggs and cheese and fry!
