French Onion Pork Chops

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

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!

By Donna marie Eichhorn on December 30, 2012


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.

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?
