Pretzel Pork Chops

Pretzel Crusted Pork Chops - ateaspoonofhappiness.com

I think it’s really hard to find good pork chop recipes because they usually end up being too dry or completely boring, but these pretzel pork chops are beyond amazing. The thinness of the chops allows them to cook quickly – before they can dry out, and the zing of the mustard combined with the flavor of the pretzels really makes the flavor pop.

On a side note, pretzels and mustard are a fantastic combination. If you haven’t tried dipping a soft pretzel in mustard, you are really missing out.
