Place flour in a shallow bowl. Whisk eggs together in a separate shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan in a third shallow bowl.
Sprinkle cutlets with salt and pepper. One at a time, dredge cutlets in flour, dip in egg and coat with bread crumb mixture.
Warm 1 Tbsp. oil and 1 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium heat until butter is foaming. Cook half of cutlets, turning once, until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 5 minutes total. Transfer to platter and loosely cover with foil to keep warm; repeat process with remaining oil, butter and dredged cutlets. Serve immediately.
This has been one of our all time family favorites! Pork Cutlets are so reasonable, about $1+ each. When I find them on sale I like to stock up. There are multiple ways to serve this cutlet, and using Parmesan cheese is one of our favorites. Leftovers are great for breakfast time with a couple eggs on the side. (If you have any leftovers!)
Guess I should start off saying that I completely messed this recipe up and it was STILL A HIT with my family! :) I didn't use any flour or salt and pepper. I used 1 whole egg and a little less than what was mentioned for the cheese and bread crumbs. I fit all 4 cutlets in the same pan, yes one got a little burnt but it was still ate. They were so quick to make! We will be making this again, hopefully correctly the next time.
I love the taste of the pork from this recipe. The reason I'm giving it 3 stars is because:
1. You use too many dishes for the outcome and
2. The second batch always comes out burned because the skillet is too hot.
If you don't mind the above then it's a good recipe. I make it because everyone in the house likes it, but I hate the cleanup.
I serve this with some kind of potato, salad and plain Greek yogurt.
