"These pork chops are the best ever, Mom," Peter, 11-year-old son of Lisa C., Calgary.
Prep Time
20 minutes
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) croutons
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried basil
  • 4 5-oz (150-g) pork loin centre-cut boneless chops, trimmed of excess fat
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) creamy Caesar dressing
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). In a small, sturdy plastic bag, combine croutons, Parmesan cheese and basil. Seal bag; put on a folded tea towel. Pound with a rolling pin or meat mallet until croutons are crushed but some coarse crumbs remain.

  2. Arrange chops in a single layer on a lightly oiled rimmed baking sheet. Spread dressing evenly over top side of each chop; sprinkle each evenly with crouton mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes, until topping is golden brown and chops are cooked through but still very slightly pink inside.
