Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

This is the second time I have made this and it was just as good this time!! I love the crispy outside and the meat on the inside is super tender. It is a great easy recipe that can be finished in under 30 minutes. I found this recipe on my good friend Annie's blog and the original recipe from Giada on Every day Italian. I served this with mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops
Recipe Courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis

2 large eggs
¾ cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
¾ cup freshly grated Parmesan
4 pork chops
salt and pepper
3 tbsp. olive oil

Whisk the eggs in a bowl to blend. Place the bread crumbs in a plate. Place the parmesan cheese in another 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 egg, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to a plate and serve with lemon wedges.
