POPCORN BREADED PORK CHOPS – January 19 – National Popcorn Day

Serves 4


  • 4 boneless pork chops, about 6 ounces each
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Trim any excess fat from the pork chops and pound until they are ½ inch thick.  Season the pork chops with the salt and pepper.
  2. Place the flour and a plate.  Place the eggs in a pie tin.  Put the popped popcorn in a food processor and pulse until the popcorn is the consistency of breadcrumbs.  Place the popcorn crumbs, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese on a plate and mix.
  3. In a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat add the olive oil.  
  4. Dredge the pork chop in the flour, then the eggs, then the popcorn mixture.  Place in the frying pan and cook until the pork chop is browned about 3-5 minutes.  Flip and repeat.  Repeat with the remaining pork chops.  Place the pork chops on a paper towel lined plate
