This is a very flexible recipe so if you don't have the exact ingredients, relax and adapt them to suit your taste. I keep a bag of Panko breadcrumbs in the cupboard as they're dried and extra crunchy, but fresh breadcrumbs will work just as well. You can add some onion powder, change the herbs, add lemon zest - the combinations are endless. All I'd recommend is that you make sure the meat you use is no more than 2cm thick so it cooks through in the frying pan.
Parmesan and Thyme Crusted Pork
30g Parmesan Cheese finely grated
2 tsp Thyme leaves, chopped
Salt & Pepper
1 Egg, beaten
2 Pork Chops, all fat trimmed
1 tbsp Oil for frying
Mix the breadcrumbs, cheese, herbs and seasoning together in a shallow bowl. Pour the beaten egg into a shallow bowl
Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat and fry the pork until golden on both sides.

*You might notice some new swanky cutlery in my posts from now on. The nice people at John Lewis gave me a set of their gorgeous Saturn cutlery to use. It's very pretty...
