Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops with Parmgiano Reggiano

I love coming up with new twists to an old recipe.  When Parmigiano Reggiano wanted to send me some parmesan cheese to feature in a recipe I was excited.  I love parmesan cheese, and having fresh on hand makes my recipes even more tasty.  The possibilities are endless on what to add parmesan too.  I chose to add it to my batter for my fried Pork Chops!

Canola Oil (enough to coat bottom of pan)
Thin Pork Chops (Trader Joe's has a great selection)
2 Large Eggs
1/4 Cup Milk
2/3 Cup All Purpose Flour
Greek Seasoning
Finely grated Parmesan Cheese
Heat Oil, Medium temp.  Once you get all the ingredients ready it will be hot enough to cook with.

Mix eggs and milk together in 1 bowl.  Mix Flour, Seasoning, and Parmesan in separate bowl.
Dip pork chop in egg mix, then in flour mix.  Here is the secret that most people don't know, you need to dip the pork chop a second time in the egg and then flour mix.  This creates a nice crunchy breading.  My husband says it's restaurant worthy.

Place in oil and let cook.  Approx 3 min, or until a golden brown, then flip to cook other side.  Pull out of oil and set on paper towel.  Then serve with any sides you would like.

The addition of the Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan gives it amazing taste, so gravy is not needed.  However, add if you like.  I love frying up potatoes with brussel sprouts and some bacon.  Then I sprinkle the left over parmesan cheese on the potato mix.  This is a simple yet filling dish and wonderful on a cold day.

I have mentioned on here how I am working with a nutritionist to lose weight.  Well this dinner is on my list of things I can eat and at only 186 calories.  The thin pork chop is the key to this being good.  Yes, it's fried but that's not always bad.  Quantity is key!  Also, the use of fresh parmesan gives this meal amazing flavor so you don't need the addition of a gravy.  Plus I love the fact that  Parmigiano Reggiano is the only parmesan from Italy.  Having good quality products is important in my home.

I can't wait to use this Parmigiano Reggiano parmesan in my homemade Mac and Cheese!  I will share that with you next month.  It's easy and great for the kiddo's while not adding preservatives and sodium.
