  1. Mix the egg, 3 cups heavy cream, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, and dip in the cream mixture. Then dredge in the oats to coat. Repeat to coat chops completely.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Use tongs to place the coated chops in the hot oil, and fry until browned on both sides. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat (you may use the same skillet if the oil has been drained), and cook the pork chops, onion, and garlic until onion is tender. Pour in the maple syrup, and mix in mushrooms and basil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes, or until pork chops are done. Remove chops from skillet, reserving sauce.
  4. Mix the remaining cream into the skillet with reserved sauce. Bring to a boil. Cook and stir until thickened. Serve over the pork chops.

This was a nice change of pace for pork chops, I did a few things differently. First I dip the pork chops in the oatmeal, then in the cream mixture, then back in the oatmeal. I know everyone thinks the first coat will come right off, but trust me it doesn't and the coating comes out much nicer. I do beleive this is probably the reason why I used more like 3 cups of Oatmeal and hardly any of the cream mixture. Second I used fat free half and half in place of the heavy cream to cut down on the fat and calories, the flavor of the sauce was very good, a little sweet (but hey what did I expect the recipe is called SWEET maple pork chops) but I think because of the fat free half and half it had a hard time thickening I added a little cornstarch to fix that up. Third I bought 2 packages of pork chops, for a total of 8 chops, I could only fit 6 chops in the pan with the onion/garlic/basil/maple syrup mixture. The remaining 2 chops I put in the frypan after I took everything out and cooked covered on low for 10 minutes by themselves. Having tried the chops both ways I don't feel this affected the taste at all and I would cook the chops this way when I prepare it again as it left the coating crispy and in tact on the chop. I definetely had trouble with the coating staying on the original 6 chops. Lastly I in no way used a quart of oil to fry these in, if I were to approximate I'd say I used about a cup or so. We did enjoy the recipe, and I'll be making it again. THANKS!!


I joined allrecipes just so I could rate this recipe and give credit to the person who suggested double dipping the chops in the oats. THE OATS DON'T FALL OFF it makes the coating nice and thick and really tasty! I now do this with everything I bread it's AWESOME for chicken cutlets!! So thanks for the recipe it's great--but even more thanks to LOVECED for her advice!


I gave this 5 stars because it had a very nice flavor but it was a big mess, the oatmeal wouldn't stay on during cooking, there was more in the skillet than on the chops. Next time I am going to try putting the oatmeal in the blender first to make a powder out of it, then dip the chops in it. Also, I see no need to use a whole quart of oil, next time I will use a small amount in the skillet, I think that the oats will stick to the chops better that way. I don't see why all that cream is necessary, seems like you would only need a cup to dip the chops in. But it does have a nice flavor and is worth trying again, and hopefully I'll get better results
