Fried Breakfast Chops With Gravy

"My mother made these growing ups and I prefer them to the thicker bone-in chops. These are easy, fast, crunchy and go great with mashed potatoes, southern green beans and biscuits."

Ready In:




  • Trim strip of fat from outside edge of chops, this feeds 2-4 people, depending on how much you like meat.
  • Pound chops slightly if needed.
  • Preheat oil in frying pan (you don't need much since these are thin chops).
  • Beat eggs in a bowl.
  • Add 3/4 cup of the flour to a pie pan. Mix in salt and pepper, garlic powder, onion powder.
  • Dip chops in egg, then dredge in flour.
  • Fry on each side until they turn a rich brown color.
  • If you'd like add additional salt and pepper while they're frying.
  • Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.
  • For Gravy:

  • Remove all but 1 or 1 1/2 T. of grease from the pan (leave all the crunchy pieces too, those add great flavor).
  • Add about 1/4 cup of flour and stir with whisk (add more 1 T. at a time as needed to absorb grease), keep heat on medium. Allow the flour to brown slightly (usually takes just a minute).
  • Add warmed milk 1/2 cup at a time while whisking viogourously to avoid lumps. So this until proper consistency is reached.
  • Add more salt, pepper a garlic powder to gravy as desired.

  1. These were so easy and great-tasting! I made them tonight, with Blackeyed Pea's Baked Squash (#45437) and mashed about a real Southern meal, all starches! You just gotta love anything chicken-fried, and covered with gravy, and we did! One note: I ended up with quite a bit of flour coating left over (and I coated 6 chops); I think 1/2 cup would probably have been enough. Thanks!
  2. Fast, easy, and delicious! I love pork chops for Sunday breakfast. They're a nice change from bacon or sausage. We ate these little beauties on biscuits sided with some stone ground cheesy grits. Kept us going all day. Thanks for posting this!


I am married and I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter and my little guy was born in December. I'm an office manager for a construction company and my husband does floor installation and trim carpentry. The kitchen is where my inner "domestic diva" comes out. Too bad it doesn't also come out in organizing... I tend to be busy during the week with friends, church functions and family so I usually have quickie meals, but on weekends (especially Sundays) I make more time consuming meals. My hobbies are (of course) cooking, reading, more cooking, and playing with my kids. My husband and I love to get together with couples from our church (many of them he grew up with!) and we play games, eat and have great times!
