Almond-Crusted Pork Chops

The first #SundaySupper of the year was all about kicking off #SundaySupper month. There wasn’t really a theme to the day other than any recipe that helps get the family around the table together. I found some great meal ideas among the impressive list from my fellow Sunday Supper Movement members, but there was one recipe in particular that I had to make right away! (Don’t ask why it took me 3 months to finally share it.)

Almond Breaded Pork Chops by Nichole.

almond pork chopsI was planning on pork that Monday and simply changed my plan slightly, it was easy to do as I had all the ingredients in my kitchen already! Though I didn’t have enough almond meal so I simply added some panko. And I decided to shallow fry the pork instead of bake it. (Don’t worry, I “cut” calories by using egg whites instead of whole eggs – but only because I had some in the fridge already.) Such a delicious idea.

I served the pork with a side of green beans and mashed potatoes. A perfect weeknight meal!

This recipe even earned a “high-five” from Firecracker!

Almond-Crusted Pork Chops


  • 4 thin boneless pork chops
  • 3/4 C almond meal
  • 1/4 C panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • oil, for frying


  1. In a shallow bowl combine the almond meal, panko, garlic powder, onion powder, S+P.
  2. Put eggs in another shallow bowl.
  3. Dredge pork chops in the eggs and then the almond mixture.
  4. Heat about 1/4″ of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. The oil is hot enough when bubbles form around the handle of a wooden spoon.
  5. Fry in batches about 4 minutes on each side, until fully cooked.
