Pan Fried Chops on Garlic Toast with Homemade Apple Sauce
Sauteed Green Beans, Peas and Water Chestnuts
Time: 20 mins
Effort Easy
Serves 4


Ingredients
4 pork chops, bone in or not (veal chops are great too!)
4 1/4 inch slices of country bread or Italian white bread (day old is even better)
1 cup plain breadcrumbs
1 tsp dried Oregano or Thyme
2 heaping tbsps Canola oil
1 tsp softened butter
2 cloves garlic - ends cut off
salt & pepper

Homemeade Apple sauce

In a small bowl mix breadcrumbs with either Oregano or Thyme then spread on parchment paper and dredge the pork or veal chops through it, coating them on both sides. Set aside. Thinly spread the butter over one or both sides of each slice of bread. Heat the oil to very hot in a medium to large skillet and fry two chops at a time until nicely browned on each side. Set on paper towels to soak excess oil. Quickly fry the bread slices until golden on both sides, then place on paper towels and while still hot, scrub them with the garlic cloves (using the cut off end). Place a chop on top of each toast and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
