Pulled Ham Sandwich, An Example Of Why You Should Cook

Pulled Ham Sandwich

This is just a sandwich. But it is a sandwich with home smoked pulled ham. I had it in the freezer and it or something like it is always available. It is way better than the plastic sliced meat they sell at supermarkets and is way cheaper than the products from a good deli. All the while, it tastes great.

So, if you want to have great food, eat better, save money and be healthier, cook your own food. Prepare meats, breads and other foods for your freezer.

In a Hurry? Make Your Own Quick Breaded Pork Chops

Quick Breaded Pork Chops

I will not knock packaged breading mixes. They taste fine. However, they are full of sodium and chemicals. OK, maybe I will knock them.
Considering how easy it is to bread a pork chop, I just don’t see the reason to use the commercial products.

I start by applying any seasoning blend you like on the pork chops. I used a Cajun Blend on these chops. Then mix 1 teaspoon mayonnaise with 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard for each chop. For example, for 2 chops I mixed 2 teaspoons mayonnaise with one teaspoon Dijon.

Spread 1/2 the mixture on one side of the pork chops. Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of dried bread crumbs on each pork chop and press the crumbs into the mayonnaise mix.

Turn the pork chops, apply the seasoning, spread with the mayo mixture and press in crumbs.

Put it on a greased tray and into a 400 F oven. For 5/8 inch pork chops, cook for ten minutes and carefully turn the chop. Cook for another 10 minutes and make sure the internal temperature is at least 150 F. Serve.

The Verdict

You can make the seasonings in any variety you like. You make them as strong as you like. The bread crumbs brown and crisp nicely. Low salt, low fat and tasty. What else could you ask for?
