Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

Can't say I make a lot of pork chops but I've had a few hanging out in the depths of my freezer and all of a sudden I decided it was time those bad boys be gone.

I'm on a mission. It's called using up everything in the freezer and cupboards. OK well that's not going to happen BUT I'd like to make a large dent in it. I go through spurts like this. Does anyone else?

As we were sitting eating supper the hubby glances my way and says, "So where'd you get this recipe. It's really good!"

My answer is, "Oh so I can't come up with anything on my own dear?"

Yup that's right these little pork chops were my creation.

Don't worry. That doesn't happen much. I like recipes. As in someone else has tried it before. Sure I'll adapt a few things here and there and throw in a new twist but for the most part I don't go out of my box to much.

I'm OK with that. I've embraced it. Kudos to you out there that have the ambition and time to develop recipes. We need people like you!

So if you have some pork chops hanging out in that freezer whip these up. You might even have all the ingredients on hand!

I actually just pulled pork chops out of the freezer this morning with no idea as to what I would do with them! Now I need to go see if I still have some parmesan left!
