Poppy Chops

Published: October 09, 2015

Prep/Cook Time: 25 minutes

Servings: 8


  • 8 Hatfield® Simply Tender™ Portions Traditional Pork Chops
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 6-oz package cornbread stuffing mix
  • 1/4 cup grated Asiago or Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1/4 cup butter-flavor shortening


  1. Beat together eggs and water in a small bowl until foamy. Pour into a shallow bowl.
  2. Place stuffing mix in a self-sealing plastic bag; finely crush with a rolling pin. Stir in Asiago or Parmesan cheese and poppy seeds. Transfer to a second shallow bowl.
  3. Trim fat from chops. Coat chops with crushed mixture. Dip into egg mixture and coat with crushed mixture again.
  4. Heat half of the shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it sizzles. Reduce heat to medium. Add 4 of the chops; cook for 6 minutes. Turn chops and cook about 6 minutes more or until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160 degrees F, reducing heat as necessary to prevent overbrowning.
  5. Transfer chops to a serving platter; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining shortening and chops.
