Today, I asked the Festive Foodies to join me in celebrating National Pretzel Day. I love pretzels. Maybe not as much as I love chips, but definitely more than I like bread...or sweets. So, I always have at least one bag of pretzels in my cupboards. Before I get to my recipe, please take a look at the other Festive Foodies' pretzel creations.
- 4 pork chops, bone-in, 3/4 to 1" thick
- 2 C pretzels (approximately 1 C crushed)
- 1/2 C flour
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 2 T butter
- 1 T olive oil
- 1/4 C organic yellow mustard
- 3/4 C heavy cream
- 2 T maple syrup
- 1 T vinegar (I used organic apple cider vinegar)
Crush pretzels in a food processor or by hand. Place flour, crushed pretzels, and beaten egg in bowls within easy reach of your workspace. Melt butter in olive oil.
Press the pork chops into crushed pretzels on both sides. Cook in melted butter until browned and cooked through. While the pork cooks, make the sauce.
Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. Warm in a small saucepan before serving.
