Manic Monday Recipe~ Breaded Pork Chops & Smashed Potatoes

I guess yesterday was MANIC, I didn't remember to post this recipe!  I am so excited to share this with you all.  I made it last week for the fam. and wanted to post it then.  Please try this, it's easy and so DELICIOUS!  I modified it a bit from the original recipe.  The recipe is from Taste of Home's 5 Ingredient Cookbook.

Make sure to come back on Wednesday for my Share the Wealth Link Party, it's open until Sunday each week!

Ingredients (Pork Chops):

1 C. Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs

2 T. Grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 C. Ranch Dressing
4-6 Pork Chops

Brown each side of your chops for about 2 minutes each. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix bread crumbs and cheese in a shallow dish.
 Place browned chops in ranch dressing and coat.
 Then, place the ranch coated chops into your bread crumb and cheese mixture.
 Place on a greased pan or cookie sheet, and bake uncovered for 55 minutes.  (use a meat thermometer to check that it is cooked thoroughly.)  If you flatten out your pork chops before browning, baking time can be reduced to about 25-30 minutes.

 Ingredients (Smashed Potatoes):

2-3 Pounds Potatoes Chopped into small Chunks

3 Tbsp. Butter or Olive Oil
3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp. Parsley
Salt and Pepper to Taste


Boil potatoes until tender.

 Drain and place potatoes into a frying pan. Drizzle with Lemon Juice, Butter/Olive Oil, and Parsley.  Stir occasionally allowing potatoes to fall apart and brown a bit.  Cook for an addition 10 minutes.  Finish with salt and pepper.
