I love how crunchy almonds and sweet mustard sauce jazz up this tender pork dish. Usually I double the recipe. One chop is never enough for my gang of grown children and grandkids. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup smoked almonds
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. In a food processor, process the almonds until finely chopped. Transfer to a shallow bowl; add bread crumbs. In another bowl, beat the eggs. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add 1 pork chop at a time and toss to coat. Dip pork chop in eggs, then coat with almond mixture.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chops in oil and butter until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet; bake, uncovered, until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey and mustard. Serve with pork chops.
