8 (3/4 inch thick) boneless loin pork chops
3 tablespoons water
1 (6 ounce) package cornbread stuffing mix
1/4 cup grated Asiago or Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
1/4 cup butter-flavor shortening
Beat together eggs and water in a small bowl until foamy. Pour into a shallow bowl.
Place stuffing mix in a self-sealing plastic bag; finely crush with a rolling pin. Stir in Asiago or Parmesan cheese and poppy seeds. Transfer to a second shallow bowl.
Trim fat from chops. Coat chops with crushed mixture. Dip into egg mixture and coat with crushed mixture again.
Heat half of the shortening in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it sizzles. Reduce heat to medium. Add 4 of the chops; cook for 6 minutes.
Turn chops and cook about 6 minutes more or until evenly browned, reducing heat as necessary to prevent overbrowning.
Transfer chops to a serving platter; cover to keep warm.
Repeat with remaining shortening and chops.
Yield: 8 servings
