Breaded Pork Chops

4 pork chops
2 cups bread crumbs
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
Deep skillet
1/2 inch of oil

Wash pork chops and pat dry. Pound with tenderizer hammer. Beat two eggs with fork and add 1/2 cup water. Dip chops in egg mixture and shake off excess, then put them in bread crumbs in a shaker bag.

Heat oil in large skillet until hot, and slowly put chops in, frying on each side for 15 to 20 minutes or so until golden brown. Serve with mashed potatoes and applesauce.
