One Pan Parmesan Pork Chops Veggies

Serves 4

Lean, nutrient-rich pork is versatile, affordable and has the qualities that make it easy to incorporate into many quick and healthy recipes. We love it paired with potatoes and asparagus in this delicious sheet pan meal!

 

Ingredients

1 pound baby red potatoes (cut into 1×1 inch chunks, halved or quartered depending on their initial size)

3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

4 boneless pork chops (1/2-inch thick, just under 1 pound total weight)

1 pound asparagus spears (not too thick)

 

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350o F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place the potatoes on the baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Use hands to mix the potatoes around in the oil until they are completely covered. Push the potatoes to one side of the baking sheet.

In a shallow dish or plate, add the parmesan, panko, garlic powder and black pepper. Stir to combine.

Place the pork chops on the open side of the baking sheet. Brush the top of the pork chops with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Spoon half the parmesan mixture evenly over the pork chops. Lightly press the parmesan mixture down onto the pork chops making a crust. Bake for 25 minutes.

Trim the tough woody ends off of the asparagus spears.

Use a spatula to give the potatoes a stir and to make room on the baking sheet for the asparagus.

Add the asparagus spears to the open area of the baking sheet. Drizzle the asparagus with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Use a brush to ensure the asparagus is well coated in oil. Sprinkle the remaining parmesan mixture evenly over the potatoes and asparagus. Cook for 20 minutes.

Buehler’s Helps Shoppers Celebrate Family Meals Month

Full workdays, homeschooling kids, video connections with family and loved ones – the typical weekday is busy and full. Yet, somehow you have to squeeze in dinner. In addition to strengthening the family bond, there are many social, healthful and financial benefits to gathering the family for healthy meals at home.  “Young children and teens who eat more family dinners tend to consume more nutrients and are less likely to be overweight,” says registered dietitian Shari Steinbach.  “Benefits also include higher self-esteem, less stress and a decrease in substance abuse among adolescents.”

Today’s families, however, often face obstacles when it comes to planning and preparing dinner. The biggest barriers to eating meals together at home are a lack of time and varied schedules of family members. Dinnertime, especially during the week, requires tasty solutions that can be prepared quickly from simple, healthy ingredients on hand. If the dreaded “What’s for dinner?” question has you scrambling for quick meal options, Buehler’s offers a variety of convenient and nutritious products to make mealtime easy.

These meal planning tips can also help you have dinner on the table in minutes:

  • Buy versatile ingredients – Be prepared for busy nights by keeping quick cooking side dishes, easy-to-prepare fruits and veggies, and versatile pre-seasoned protein items on hand so you can create a fast, balanced meal for your family. These include instant brown rice, whole grain pasta, canned or frozen vegetables and fruits, canned beans, precut veggies/fruit, prepared salads and quick-cooking, versatile protein products like pork chops, pork tenderloin, and chicken.
