Some nights, you just have to eat off a waffle. If you’ve been following along, you know I LOVE chicken and waffles. Like, a household staple recipe. But recently, I found myself cooking the classic in a way we’d never tried before: pork chop waffles!
Part of the reason why I love waffles + basically anything fried, is because they are quick and easy to whip up. In just about thirty minutes, you can make your favorite waffle recipe, fry up some pork chops, and slather it in maple yogurt sauce. For a kick, drizzle on some sriracha. Dinner is served!
Pork Chops & Waffles with Maple Yogurt Sauce
FOR PORK CHOPS:
FOR MAPLE YOGURT SAUCE:
- ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- Preheat the oven to 375F. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and maple syrup until smooth. Refrigerate yogurt until ready to serve.
- Prepare the pork chops by patting dry, tossing in flour, then dipping into the whisked egg, and finally into the panko until a thick crust has formed. Cover the pork chops completely with breading.
- Place the pork chops onto a baking sheet and pop into the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160F.
- While the pork chops are cooking, preheat and grease the waffle iron. Whisk together the flour, milk, egg, sugar, melted butter, baking soda and a pinch of salt. The waffle batter should be thick but smooth.
- Using a measuring cup, pour the batter in 1/2 cups onto the preheated waffled iron. Cook waffles according to the waffle iron instructions, about 3-4 minutes per side.
- Remove the pork chops from the oven when ready and let rest while the waffles finish cooking.
- Arrange the pork chops on top of the waffles and drizzle on the maple yogurt sauce. Garnish with slices of bacon, as desired. Serve breakfast for dinner, and enjoy!
