The day of almost

On New Year’s Day, the tradition in my family is to eat pork.  Usually pork and sauerkraut, but I was never a fan.  I had a couple boneless pork chops to thaw, so I decided to do some fried pork chops.  I found a recipe for Pork Schnitzel  that was similar to the breading I follow for regular fried chicken.  I found it in the Taste of Home cookbook.

Ingredients – I only have 4 pork chops instead of 6, but I still mixed the full recipe for the breading

Breading!  Here’s where the almost starts.  I almost had enough bread crumbs and paprika

A side of macaroni and cheese.  I used the recipe from here.  I almost had enough pasta.  I left out the broccoli and ham.  I almost enough pasta for it.  It was a little saucy, but gooooood.  I used colby jack for the cheese sauce.

Here’s my dinner plated

It was really good, but the extra seasonings didn’t really add too much to the final flavor of the chop.  I did trim off all of the fat before breading though.  I was glad I did, because it kind of…….cooked out (I was thinking of a much less appetizing word – lol).  I think the mac and cheese recipe will be my go to one.  I just need to get enough pasta to accommodate the sauce made.
