A few weeks ago I ran across a great sale on whole Pork Tenderloin. So I bought a few, brought them home and cut them into boneless pork chops

It’s a great way to save money on that grocery budget! I’m always looking for ways to cut costs when it comes to feeding the family! 

For years folks have used this recipe buttery crumb coating on Chicken. It’s a great dish, but I decided to use it on Pork Chops to create these tender and delicious Oven Fried Butter Crumb Pork Chops! A quick, easy, and budget friendly family meal. One I know the birds at your nest will love! (Cause life is all about the crumbly bits!) 

How To Make Butter Crumb Pork Chops

Preheat oven to 375°.

Let’s get started! Begin by crushing 1 cup buttery crackers, I used Ritz. Cause everything…including a big ol’ hunk of pork, is better on a Ritz! 

TIP: Use a potato masher to crush the crackers in the same bowl you’re going dredge the pork chops in. This recipe doesn’t work really well by placing the crumbs in a plastic bag. You are going to need to “press” the pork chops into the crumb mixture.

Season the cracker crumbs by adding a little  garlic salt and black pepper just to your taste. I did about 1/4 teaspoon of each. Stir everything together to combine. Isn’t that simple! I love the simplicity of this recipe!

In a separate dish add 3 whole eggs. I made 6 pork chops and had more than enough egg wash. You may even want to just start out with two. I feel I wasted a lot of the egg mixture. However, I was following the original recipe as found on AllRecipes. 

Aren’t those pretty eggs? Nothing beats farm fresh eggs and these were Farm Fresh thanks to my sweet girlfriend! (I don’t have time to feed chickens and collect eggs… I can’t even keep up with the laundry! I’m convinced I’ll die with a load in the dryer waiting for its 5th go around!)

TIP: I like to use smaller bread pans for this particular recipe. It makes for an easier clean-up and keeps all the ingredients in the pans and not all over your counters.  You can use any shallow dish you like.

Using a wire whisk beat eggs. Confessions time…half the time I just use a fork! As long as those eggs get a good “whooping” that’s all that important! 

Now we can debate the next step till the cows come home! I prefer to rinse my pork. Some of you don’t. You do you! I won’t judge you either way!

Rinse pork chops and pat dry. Dip pork chop in egg wash making sure to coat both sides.

Dredge (I just keep saying that word because it’s cool! I don’t often sound cool!) the egg washed pork chops in crushed crackers.

Flip pork chop over and press cracker crumbs into pork chops! I’m serious…press them in into the pork chops. Toss a little of that coating up on top of that pork chop you just coated and press more onto it! These pork chops are all about that golden buttery coating!

Place the breaded pork chops in 9 x 13 baking dish!

Now it’s time to give every heart surgeon out there to gasp! You’re going to take an entire stick of butter and slice it into chunks.  They don’t have to be perfect uniform chunks. Just big ol’ dabs of buttah!  Place the butter chunks on top of the pork chops and around them.

These Oven Fried Butter Crumb Pork Chops are going swimming in a river of golden happiness!

Cover and bake pork chops in a 375° oven for 40–45 minutes.  Be careful not to over bake them. Nothing worse than a dry pork chop…unless it’s shoe leather! You can remove the foil for the last few minutes of baking to crisp up the tops.

I can't wait to make these, are we using salted butter for the top? Or unsalted?

Tried this tonight. Pork chops came out soggy, and overdone. Made sure to broil them a few minutes at the end. Any idea what I did wrong.

Hi Eric! I'm so sorry these turned out soggy! One recommendation that I have is to place them on an open rack on top of a baking sheet so that air can get under them as well as on top of them. I've found that this works beautifully. I also recommend flipping on them rack half way through baking. Norine

How thick are the pork chops?

Hi Donna!

Great Question! I usually buy pork chops about a 1/2 inch thick! I wouldn't do ones any thinner, they tend to dry out! Enjoy this recipe! Happy Nesting...come back soon! Norine

Making these for the second time in 2 weeks, they are that good and easy! Took me all of 5 minutes to prep and then just wait for the delicious results. I didn’t have any eggs today, so I coated with mayo and everything turned out so good and crispy!! IMO compared to the egg dip my first time, the crackers held on and coated much better with the mayo
