Sheet Pan Crispy Cheddar Pork Chops
I am so excited that fall is officially here. The crisp, cool mornings and beautiful leaves in the mountains are my favorite part. I love getting inspired for new fall flavored dishes that are easy to cook for my family. It is time to bust out the sheet pans and casserole dishes and start baking in the oven again. Sheet pan meals are all the craze right now. How can you go wrong with only using one sheet pan and having your entire meal cooked in one sheet?
Cooks today are craving new food inspiration, creative recipes, flavorful dishes – and want it all at a great price. And that’s happening today with pork. Our family loves pork and it is affordable and such a great price for families. According to the National Retail Report, 2017 shows smoked pork chops averaging $4.46 a pound compared to 2016 at $4.77 a pound. It makes buying pork even easier and its no wonder that it is doubling as the requested meat in restaurants. We love it so much that we incorporate it into our meals at least once a week. I have made quite a bit of pork in my day but I am honestly here to tell you…. this was one of the best things I have ever eaten!
How to get crispy baked pork chops
- First you start by buying high quality pork chops. I used bone- in pork chops, but boneless certainly will work. I like using a thick cut because they cook evenly alongside the potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
- You then make an egg and milk mixture and a panko cheddar mixture. You dredge the pork into the egg and then into the crispy panko cheddar topping.
- Let the pork bake for at least 20 minutes and then flip the pork over to give each side that crispy coating that we all love.
- The National Pork Board recommends to cook pork chops, roasts and tenderloin to an internal
temperature between 145 degrees F. (with a light pink center) and 160 degrees F., followed by a three-
minute rest. For ground pork, cook to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
You guys. I can not get over how uh-mazing these pork chops turned out. The crispy cheddar coating was absolute perfection and the flavor was unreal. The crispy coating also gets a blend of dried spices to ensure that you will have enough flavor with every bite. And the cheddar cheese hidden inside is my favorite part! It gets crispy as it cooks and just melts on top of the pork.
With the holidays approaching pork is the perfect time to celebrate and make the center of your dinner table. This is the perfect cozy Fall meal. Those pork chops just look like crispy, delicious perfection, don’t they? The entire family is already begging to make the crispy cheese pork chops again! I know that they will be a huge hit at your dinner table as well!
