Pork Chops Milanese

Pork chops are fancy enough for a party, but easy enough for a weeknight.

Marguerite Henderson shares the recipe for this fall comfort food.
Pork Chops Milanese
4-6 pork chops (with or without bone in), pounded thin (about ½” thick)
1 cup flour, seasoned with ½ teaspoon kosher salt
3 eggs, beaten
1 ½ cup plain breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Pinch of black pepper
½ cup canola oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 lemons, thinly sliced

1) Have the pork chops pounded thin (use a mallet and zip lock bag.)

2) Place the flour in a plate and season with salt.

3) Beat the eggs in a bowl.

4) Place the breadcrumbs, cheese, and pepper in a shallow bowl.

5) Dredge the pork chops in the flour, then dip in the eggs, covering both sides, then dip in breadcrumbs.

6) When all the chops are done, in a large skillet, heat the two oils until just shimmery over medium heat.

7) Cook the chops, two at a time, until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side.

8) Transfer to a paper towel lined platter. Serve the chops with lemon slices on top. Makes 4-6 servings.
Spaetzle with Parsley
½ pound spaetzle noodles, cooked “al dente”, drained
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
½ teaspoon kosher salt

1) When noodles are cooked, toss with butter, parsley and salt. Taste for seasoning.

2) Serve on the side or under each pork chop. Serves 4-6.
Roasted Squash and Zucchini "Spaghetti”
1 pound butternut squash, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 shallot, minced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
Pinch of black pepper
4 zucchini, cut with a spiralizer into thin strands (or use just cut into thin slices on diagonal)

1) Toss the squash with olive oil, garlic, shallot, salt and pepper.

2) Spread on parchment lined baking sheet.

3) Roast in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until just softened. Add the zucchini to the pan, roast another 5 minutes.

4) Serve the squash and zucchini on side of the pork. Serves 4-6.
