Crushed Cracker Pork

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by internetnut

My 4 yrs old newphew and I really liked this recipe. We thought it tasted so good. When I made this I used thin sliced boneless pork chops as that's what I had on hand. I had to double the egg mixture and the bread crumbs. I also had to bake the chops in the oven at 350 for 15 minutes after frying. I would recommend crushing the cracker crumbs in a food processor as that will make them finer and they stick better when they are finer. I got this recipe from Tops courtesy of National Pork Board.

This is can use plain saltines and eliminate the steak sauce in the egg mixture. I've used this recipe for years. can add some parmesan cheese and bread chicken cutlets with it. I also bread fish fillets with it, adding some lemon pepper.
