Baked Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops : Serve these parmesan crusted pork chops to your family for dinner. You’d never know they’re baked and not fried! It’s our all-time comfort food favorite my boys ask for over and over again.
Last week, I surprised my family with Baked Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops. It’s a family favorite recipe that I’ve been baking for as long as I can remember. And every time I bake them, they are devoured. My family just can’t seem to get enough of this one!
I was raised on fried pork chops, so I know a good chop when I taste it. And this one taste just like it’s been deep-fried, for sure. However, it’s baked–not fried. With a buttery crust and a little grated parmesan cheese, these juicy chops would be a wonderful choice for your next family meal.

Just like all my other Southern style meals, I like easy. And these pork chops are simple to throw in the oven and bake. I like to serve mine with another Southern favorite–fried okra. So it’s nice to have a baked version for this one.
The secret to delicious baked parmesan crusted pork chops is the crushed buttered crackers. After blending the crackers with grated parmesan cheese and salt and pepper, I like to double coat the pork chops, too. That way you get an extra crunchy layer on the outside of the pork chops once they’re baked. No kidding- these baked pork chops really do taste like southern fried.
Baked Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops
Family Pack of Mixed Pork Chops
2 cups Ritz cracker crumbs
4 Tablespoons Milk
6 Tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup butter, divided
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place 1/4 cup butter in the baking dish and melt in oven.
Combine cracker crumbs, parmesan, and salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
In another bowl, blend together milk and eggs.
Flip pork chops in cracker mixture, then milk mixture, and once again in crackers for a nice buttery crust.
Take out baking dishes and swirl around melted butter evenly across the bottoms.
Place coated pork chops in baking dish for 30 minutes.
Using a spatula, carefully flip each pork chop and continue baking for another 30 minutes or until chops are done.
Have you tried Crock Pot Cheeseburger Sandwiches?
Just a note:
After so many years of baking these, I’ve learned using a Clear Oblong Baking Dish works best. Other varieties seem to stick a little, even with butter. But the clear glass, for some reason, never sticks.
I also use 2 shallow baking dishes because I make so many, and to give enough room between each chop for flipping during baking. Now I know what you’re thinking. That’s way too much trouble! And yes, I get it. But believe me, these baked parmesan crusted pork chops are so worth it. I don’t think my family loves any other recipe I serve more than this one. It’s a comfort food favorite that my boys ask for over and over again.

These look incredible! I love pork chops an am always on the lookout for new ways to make them! Thanks for sharing!
What a great idea to use two pans. These sound wonderful, I can’t wait to make it.
You know what, I never eat poke chops because I’d brefer bacon or sausage. But now I’m really tempted by this idea of adding the butter parmesan crust. Pinning it so I can give it a try!
Mitzi Smith says
This is actually the only way my youngest son will eat pork chops, so you may want to give this one a try. 🙂
Totally pinned this! It sounds amazing!

This sounds wonderful & I have everything I need in the house to give this a try. Definitely trying this tomorrow night 🙂 Oh & I visited from Works for me & am so glad.
Holy yum! These look amazing. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday!
We love pork chops, so I am always looking for ideas. This looks very nice. DO you think regular breadcrumbs or Panko will work instead of Ritz crackers?
Mitzi Smith says
I’m sure you could use Panko or breadcrumbs. We just like Ritz because they have a buttered flavor.
Jennie @ TheHousewifeModern says
Thanks for the great recipe! I’m always looking for new pork recipes since my husband prefers it over other meat. (I personally am not a fan…so I usually eat the side dishes…haha).
Pinned it so I could find it later.
p.s. I found your post via “Pinterest Party” on Recipes for our Daily Bread.
p.p.s. Planning on going to check out your Pinterest page right now!
