Oh My Gosh, A Blizzard: Fried Pork Chops

February 1, 2011 was the beginning of our blizzard. As the freezing rain and snow began to come down, I was thinking of (our last supper) creating a good hearty meal for my family just in case we lose power. I wanted to make sure everyone would be full for a while.

I decided to make fried pork chops.

I know fried (cooked by frying in fat) is a bad word, but sometimes we long for "the bad".

Have you ever had a deep-fried pork chop? If you haven't, make sure you visit Paula Deen. I tried her deep-fried pork chop recipe once, okay a couple times, and they are out of this world delicious. A deep-fried pork chop in the Ohio area is known as "broasted".

Hey, there's those Cheez-Its again. Wait until you see what I have done with them.

I crushed four cups of whole crackers with my rolling pin. I crushed them really fine because I want to use them as a coating for my pork chops.

I grabbed the partial containers of mustard from my frig. Some regular mustard and spicy brown.

I squirted the mustards onto my pork chops (I had four pork chops by the way) and smeared the mustards on both sides of the pork chops.

For the coating I used the crushed Cheez-Its, 2 TBS Italian seasoning, and crushed black pepper.
I coated both sides of the pork chops with the cracker mixture.

Then I fried them in canola oil over medium/high heat (7 on the burner knob).

This was our blizzard evening meal. And yes, that is Noodle-Roni. I'm not a big fan of Noodle-Roni, but since it was in my pantry, and Italian flavored, I decided to put it on our plates.

Good Luck~Happy Eating~Enjoy

  1. Oh you clever clever woman! These look simply divine and I'm sure they tasted heavenly. Broasted is great! Your pictures are always awesome!

  2. Oh my gracious... these look heavenly.... I am so gonna make these (if I can find those Cheez-It's that is.....) Did you make the ranch cheese ball??? Love the new look of the roses... Ahhh Valentines Day don't you love it :)

  3. I didn't get the cheese ball made, due to the fact of, as the day went on I got lazier and lazier, and caught up in the Hallmark channel. What can I say? They are running romantic Valentine movies. I will get it made though. My family loves easy access to snacks. I will make sure to link it to you.

  4. That is not necessary.... hoping you like it... I know I am exhausted today a sick baby and hubby all weekend... I think I need a vacation.


I look forward to and appreciate any comments.
Thank you for stopping by.
