Breaded Pork Chops and Brussel Sprouts

===================

In the fall, when Brussel sprouts were in season, my mother would serve them most often with her traditional pork loin roast. To make them more attractive to us as young children, she would sauté them in butter and sprinkle them with crisp bacon bits. I previously wrote about making pork roasts two different ways, so I am presenting her recipe for breaded pork chops here.

-----------------------------

Breaded pork chops also go well with brussel sprouts and they are easy to make. Besides the chops themselves, all that you need is a couple of beaten eggs and some bread crumbs. Besides adding a crunchy coating, the breading helps to keep the juices in so that the pork chops remain moist and tender.

------------------------------

I prefer to use Panko breadcrumbs but you can use any type that you want to use. My mother sometimes just crushed some crackers and used them.

Thanks you so much for this delicious sounding recipe. I was waiting and hoping you'd post another recipe. Passing this on and trying it first chance I get.

I was thinking of what I am going to do with the Brussel sprouts I just bought. I selectively picked the small ones because I had tried them ones but didn't actually enjoy them. But here I am wanting to try and cook them myself (also aiming for new food shots for my Facebook album of meals I cook at home), hoping the kids would eat them too. Infact, serving Brussel sprouts sauteed in butter, plus bacon bits to go with Roasted Pork sounds really good! A tempting dish, good recipe! Voted awesome! Thanks rj!
