Super Easy Pork Chops

Being on bed rest is a pain... being nine months pregnant is a pain. So, when I was thinking up dinner and perusing Pinterest for pork chop ideas I was looking for something easy, fast, and that didn't require dirtying a bunch of dishes or digging out a bunch of ingredients. I didn't find what I was looking for. So, I did something that I rarely do, I made my own recipe. I found a chicken recipe that used mayo a while back and it was super moist and tender and over Easter weekend my mother-in-law made my favorite garlic chip dip (which uses mayo and sour cream along with garlic seasoning). My pregnant brain smooshed the two together and tonight's dinner is the result. It was really easy to make and tasted great. AND I even took my very own picture of it, something I am notoriously terrible at. It was a victorious night all around for this little chef...


2 pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
1/4 cup mayo
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup cornflakes, smashed (Panko would work well too, I just happened to have cornflakes on hand)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix together the mayo, garlic and cheese.

Place crushed cornflakes in a gallon storage bag.

Dredge pork in mayo mixture to coat. Place pork chop in bag and coat with cornflakes.

Place chops in a greased baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. 

[See, I told you it was simple!]
