Recipe by Claudia Dawn
This is a great make ahead recipe that's perfect for informal get-togethers. If not preparing for serving later, you can omit the baking portion - just cook through when frying. I buy whole pork roasts and slice the entire thing for tenderloins. As long as I'm going to the work to prepare them; I prepare the entire roast for freezing and, walah, several make ahead meals are ready!

This had great flavor, but I found that after putting it in the oven, the breading became soft. Since I prefer a crunchier texture, when making this again, I will cook it all the way through in the skillet and forget the oven part. Thanks, Claudia, for giving me a new way to make pork tenderloins, which I serve often.

- 2 eggs
