Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops | Healthy and Quick Dinner Recipe

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

So, I decided a long time ago that I just do not like plain pork chops. I just feel like they are so blah. Maybe it’s because my dad made them a lot growing up and I kind of got sick of them...but I also feel the same way about who knows!

I’ve had Parmesan crusted pork chops before, but they always turned out average. Until we started playing around with them and utilizing our cast iron skillet. Now, I could eat these every week! They have the perfect texture and are full of flavor.

I always make sure we have a green vegetable with our dinner and the asparagus paired perfectly. I also make the actual best mashed potatoes...but I don’t have the recipe on the blog because it’s definitely a “wing it” type situation… Maybe one day I’ll figure out how much of everything I put in :)

So, the first think you need to do is get yourself a cast iron skillet!!! (We have this one) We use ours all of the time and it has seriously improved our dinner game! I also use my Kitchen Aid Mixer for my mashed potatoes, because they turn out so perfect every time!
