Happy 2016! Today, the #SundaySupper fam is celebrating National Sunday Supper Month. There was no theme for today’s post – in fact, we were told “The theme is open! Focus on great food and memories with the family.”, because truly that is the Sunday Supper mission – to inspire families to connect around the dinner table more regularly.
The planner in me kind of panicked as to what to make. But then I thought I’d truly channel today’s theme – focus on good food.
I do strive to meal plan each week – it’s pretty much essential if either Jason or I want to eat! With him in school, most of my dinners (during the week, anyway), are either leftovers by myself, or eating out with friends. It won’t always be this way (Jason has one year left of law school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and I have a few regular tasty dinners that I love to make for us for those evenings where we do get to eat together.
Enter Almond Breaded Pork Chops. We ate a lot of breaded pork chops growing up – and they were always one of my favorite meals. My husband, a simple dude, with simple tastes, loves this meal! Every time I make it, he is a happy guy.
Since we try and stay away from refined carbs, I started using almond meal to replace traditional bread crumbs and/or panko in most dishes that call for it. You really can’t taste a difference. I like to coat thinly sliced boneless pork chops, since they cook faster than thicker cut. I hope you love one of our favorite meals as much as we do!

That looks like a satisfying meal. I’m not surprised your husband is a happy camper after eating it 🙂
You see pecan crusted everything, but I can’t wait to get in the kitchen and make these! We love almonds in our house!
Love almond flour and your pork chops look so so good!Have to try!
Lynne @ MyGourmetConnection says
I love breaded pork chops – the almond meal is a nice way to cut the carbs!
This is genius. We do a chicken in almond meal, it never occurred to me to swap it out for pork, duh. Beautiful dish!!!
This brings back memories of my mom growing up – she’d make almond flaked pork chops and broccoli sometimes!
Serena | Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch says
I love that these are gluten free and such a simple list of ingredients! I can’t wait to try them!
Wendy, A Day in the Life on the Farm says
These sound amazing to me. I can’t wait to give them a try.
Ooh, I will definitely be making these. Love almond and this sounds like an amazing breading.
I love this nut crust! I cannot wait to try these chops!
I hope you enjoy, Liz!
I’m always looking for quick and easy meals for the weekdays. We eat breaded pork chops a lot but your almond breaded version sounds awesome. Can’t wait to try it!
These are so good! I make them using almond meal 2-3/month!
I’ve been meaning to try almond meal for ages. Also, haven’t had pork chops in a long while, but this may be something to get started with!
And happy belated birthday! Hope it was a great day 🙂
Tammi @Momma's Meals says
I love the simplicity behind this dish. It was a classic growing up with my family too, now to get the kids on board! Happy Sunday!
