READY IN: 25mins




  • Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Place the Melba toasts, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, thyme, and sugar in a zip-top bag and seal.
  • Pound the toasts to coarse crumbs, leaving some the size of small pebbles.
  • Add 2 tablespoons mayonnaise to the bag and work it into the crumb mixture. Transfer to a large plate.
  • Working with one chop at a time, coat with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise using your fingers or the back of a spoon; coat thoroughly with Melba crumb mixture.
  • Press on the crumbs on the chop to make sure they adhere; lay the chop on a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake the pork chops on the wire rack until the coating is golden brown and the center registers 135 degrees, approximately 16 to 22 minutes.
  • Transfer the chops to a clean plate and let rest until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 to 150 degrees (5 to 10 minutes).
