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!

I thought this recipe sounded amazing but to me it was only “meh.” Wasn’t bad, but wasn’t what I thought it’d be. Lots of breading went to waste, parts were sticking to the pan, and didn’t crisp up very well. Tasted good but probably won’t make it again.
I followed the recipe but the breading stuck to the pan so unfortunately this didn’t turn out there way it should. Also, had to cook the pork chops longer than 30 minutes.
Great recipe! I had a lot of breading leftover too and added it to the veggies halfway through (when I turned the porkchops). Delicious!
Definitely half the breading! There was so much left over that I had to throw away 🙁 but omg! This recipe was great. Pork chops were tender and delicious. I added more cheese on top when i took the pan out to flip the chops.
Hi! Can I use almond flour instead? Thank you!
Hello! I haven’t tried this but I imagine it would work fine! I hope it turns out for you!
It’s a very flavorful recipe, however….the proportions are WAY off when it comes to the breading. I had 6 thick-cut pork chops and threw away so much breading and cheese it was such a waste. Also, the breading does not stick well to the chop and the flipping doesn’t help. Next time, I’ll elevate my chops on a rack and half the recipe for the breading. Otherwise a very tasteful and flavorful dish.
Great recipe, wish I had read the reviews because I was left with too much panko mix as well.
Cooked it for my family today, followed the instructions completely. But for some reason my pork chops did not come out crispy. I left them in the oven 5 min longer, but still no crisp. The flavor was ok. I used gold potatoes chopped into medium cubes, they did not cook all the way!
Very impressed, only made 2 pork chops, halved all quantities.. was very moist, flavourful.. all done in one pan! A definite keeper
This looks delicious! My family doesn’t eat pork.. has anyone tried substituting for another protein?
Do you think I could substitute boneless chicken breasts for pork chops? Same time and over temp? Thank you.
That will work great! Let me know how they turn out.
This is a HIT at my house. I added a little extra cheese because that’s what we do and it was delicious. Great idea!
I made this tonight but didn’t read comments first….lol. I followed coating as stated in recipe and had sooo much left over! Next time I will defiantly halve the ingredients. I’m going to try it with boneless chicken breasts….
