Happy 2013 and Melt in Your Mouth Pork

     Happy New Year!   Can you believe that it’s 2013?  I can’t!  Last year flew by so quickly I wasn’t quite ready for 2013 to be here.   Now that the new year is here I was looking for a pork dish I could make today.  In my family we have a tradition of eating pork on New Year’s Day for good luck in the new year.  Generally we have pork and sauerkraut but this year I just wasn’t feeling it.

     I wanted something easy to make but delicious.  I saw a recipe for melt in your mouth chicken and decided to turn it into a pork chop recipe.  This recipe is super easy.  Simply mix up the ingredients, spread them on the pork, and bake.  That’s it!

      While the pork wasn’t quite melt in your mouth it was totally delicious.  The cheese mixture begins to get crispy and forms a nice coating on top of the pork.  We served it with pearl couscous and corn which went nicely with the bold flavor of the pork.

       Happy 2013!
