Me and pork chops

No I have not written much lately, but I have been doing a boat load of cooking, just not writing it down.

Pork chops with corn flakes

§       4 thick cut pork chops (over 1/2 inch)
§       1 cup corn flakes, crushed to about 1/4 inch size
§       2 eggs, beaten
§       1/2 long green Italian pepper, minced
§       garlic powder
        (was not sure how regular garlic would stay on the chop, so used powdered)
§       salt
§       black pepper
§       olive oil

liberally coat each chop with salt, pepper and garlic powder
add olive oil to coat the bottom of a baking pan
pre-heat oven to 375 F
set up the "breading station" in the following order
In separate dishes place eggs, then peppers, then corn flakes in order
dip each chop on each side in order of the dishes and place in pan
cook for 30 minutes at 375 F THEN reduce the heat to 275 F for 45 min
check the temperature (should be over 165 F, FDA says 135 F is fine)
sorry FDA, I don't believe you cause I saw cases of Trichinosis the year you changed the rules!
