the other white meat: panko crusted pork chops and sis's zuchinni cakes

pork chops were on sale this week so i indulged in a little pork fun. i don't eat pork that often so this was a pretty new adventure for me. i turned to my trusty cooking light for a recipe and voila, i found panko crusted pork chops with creamy herb dressing. to compliment the other white meat, i also whipped together some zucchini cakes with what i had on hand.

my zucchini cakes
1 zucchini, grated
couple tablespoons of parmesan cheese
1 egg white
1/3 cup fresh bread crumbs
fresh parsley
1 garlic clove, grated

grate zucchini and place in dish towel. squeeze all juice out until completely dry. in small bowl, mix together cheese, egg white, bread crumbs, s&p, parsley & garlic clove. form into little patties, should form about six in total. heat pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cook cakes for 3-4 minutes per side. flip and cook on other side.

oh one other thing - when i plated up my meal, i topped off the my cakes with the creamy herb dressing too. eat up!
