Breaded Pork Chops


These pork chops are given the standard three step breading process to achieve their delectable crust. First the chops are dusted with flour, then they are dipped in beaten egg,, and finally they are dredged in breadcrumbs. Using a plastic sealable bag for the flour is genius, since you can simply shake the chop to coat evenly and thoroughly, and it's the flour that forms the glue for the egg and the breadcrumbs to adhere.
