Recipe Monday

Last week my husband surprised me with 2 new cookbooks. I think he was trying to give me a hint. Ok maybe not, but I have been saying I really need some cookbooks. It was really exciting to have some now. He got really good ones too.

One was the Good House Budget Dinners. There are a lot of fun, simple and cheap recipes. I'm so excited to try.

The other one is one I've been wanting since we got married. My mom uses it all the time and I used it a lot when I was back home. It is the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. It has lots of easy, delicious recipes for many basic things like cakes and pasta, but also a lot of fun recipes. Most of them are super easy. I have never had a recipe out of it that was not full proof (which is good for me). I was sooooo excited.

That very night I tried a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens one. It was delicious! My husband is not a huge fan of pork chops, but he really like this recipe. It was so easy too. It would be great for a fancy company dinner (especially if you find pork chops on sale somewhere). No, that is not my picture of the pork chops, but its pretty close. One thing I did differently was that I did not finely crush the stuffing mix, I let it be. I made sure to cover the pork chops with mostly seasoning, but having the bigger pieces of dried stuffing added a crunch I liked. Enjoy.

Oven-Fried Pork Chops


  • 4 pork chops, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Pour butter into a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. Stir together egg, milk and pepper. Dip pork chops in egg mixture, coat with stuffing mix and place in pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Turn chops and bake for another 10 minutes, or until no pink remains in the meat and juices run clear.
