Cheese Crusted Pork Chop Recipe ~ Dinner In 20 Minutes

Cheese Crusted Pork Chop Recipe

My family is no stranger to a good, juicy and moist pork chop.  The boys love pork chops and I like that it adds some variety to our usual beef menu.  Let’s face it my husband loves beef!  These Cheese Crusted Pork Chops are well asked for in our house with their magnificent flavor and I am willing to oblige because of how easy they are to make!

Cheese Crusted Pork Chops

These Cheese Crusted Pork Chops are delicious and the coating helps keep everything moist, which when you broil pork chops can sometimes be a bit tricky…or maybe that’s just me.  I somehow, miraculously  forget that they don’t need that long on each side, especially in un-trustworthy oven.  I have to watch things like a hawk baking or broiling in there and with two kids in the house…well you can imagine how that always turns out.

What else do I like about these Cheese Crusted Pork Chops?  That they can be done in under 20 minutes with a little planning, aka take the pork chops out of the freezer in the morning.  With thawed pork chops you are well on your way to a quick and delicious dinner while the kids are doing their homework.  Sure beats the quick run to the fast food join (which is 30 miles each way for me so not that quick!)
