First of all let me say,"These chops had a really good taste".:) Since there was three of us,I had to make a few changes.This is what I did,instead of adding another egg I just added about 2 to 3 tablespoons of water,and added just a little bit more of the oregano and thyme for the mustard I brought the amount up to 3/4 of a teaspoon and left the amount of bread crumbs the same as stated in the recipe.I thought that 1 cup of oil was a little too much,so I used about 1/3 cup of melted shortening.This recipe would be wonderful for a beginner cook.This will be made again.Thank you for posting."Keep Smiling :)"

I live in Omaha NE and am an audiologist at Boys Town National Research Hospital. I love to cook, as does my husband Michael. In the summer, we have a large garden and try to use alot of fresh fruits/veggies in our cooking. We have a 5 year old daughter, Kate and almost 2 year old son Sam and enjoy introducing them to new foods. One of their favorites is fresh pesto smeared on crackers!
