French Onion Pork Chops

4 boneless pork chops
2 packs of french onion soup mix
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In one pan, crack the egg and beat it. In another mix together the breadcrumbs and soup mix.

Coat the pork chops with the beaten egg, and then with the breadcrumb mixture; take care to coat both sides.

Place pork chops on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping after 10 minutes.

I am probably the only one who actually made this dish by looking at the other comments. I thought it was so so. Not a 5 and not a 1 so I'll stick in the middle with 3 stars. I love French onion soup, but this was a little too much for my taste. I don't mean to be rude, but it makes it hard for others to get a good review of the dish when people rate the recipe a 5 and only have questions or comments like "I can make sauerkraut". If the web masters are reading this perhaps they can change the rating box to reflect it for just those having comments/questions and not force a person to actually have to make a rating based solely on only having a question or comment. For those wondering about the brand of soup I used Leonard Mountain French Onion Soup Mix.

This looks so good!! I have two questions, though. The dry soup mix--are we talking about, say, Knorr French Onion Soup Mix, or the good old Lipton Onion Soup Mix? Also, are the bread crumbs fresh, or just dried? Would appreciate some help on this, because I'd love to make it. Thanks in advance for your help!

Is this lipton onion soup mix? Or is there another one that is actually called french onion soup mix? I know Knorr used to make it...

Looks like something we would all like. If you have left over onion rings from fixing green bean casserole, crush the onions and use them in place of onion soup & bread crumds. Sounds delicious to me.
