Onion Crunch® Crunchy Baked Pork Chops

pizza8

By Lisa,·The Blog of Lisa

1/2 1/2 inch thick boneless pork chops
Lawry's seasoning
garlic powder
white pepper
shake of garlic salt
2 eggs
Panko bread crumbs
Onion Crunch®, for topping

If you use both packets of potatoes, you will want to use more sour cream/milk, but don't double it. Trust me.

Directions:

Take 1/2 inch thick boneless pork chops season them the way you like. I love Lawry's seasoning, garlic powder, white pepper, and a shake of garlic salt.

Get two eggs and Panko bread crumbs. I also added a shake or two of Loeb's Onion Crunch®. These things are amazing. They make your breath rank, but I still add them to the majority of all my food. I am lazy and don't like to cut up onions. It's not like I have family or friends that come over. Probably because of things like THIS.
I added the above mentioned seasonings to the bread crumb mixture, and mixed them all in a lime green bowl. The eggs had to be cracked into an old butter tub. Don't judge. Buy me bowls if you don't like it.

Coat the chops in egg, then Panko mixture. Place on greased pan.

I suppose you can use actual French Fried Onions. Be that way.

Bake uncovered for 20 minutes.

Angie’s Onion Crunch® Cheese Stuffed Meatballs

By Angie,· 5dollardinners.com

I diced up way too much cheese, but it’s good to snack on too! Your meatballs should be the size of a scoop of ice cream and the cheese cubes are the size of a quarter. The cheese will bubble out of some of them, but it’s all good. In this recipe, I used a product called Onion Crunch. I’m not sure how available it is since it’s pretty new, but you can substitute crunched up funyuns or something similar. All kids finished their plates with 2 thumbs up, although I had to leave the cheese out for one of them. She’s the oddball.

Yield – 15 meatballs

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 22 minutes

1.5 lbs ground beef
3 oz Mozzarella cheese, cubed
3 tbs minced garlic
2 tbs parsley
1 cup Onion Crunch® or crushed up Funyuns
1/4 cup Worchester Sauce
3 eggs

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except the cheese in a bowl and mix thoroughly with your hands.
Ball mixture the size of a scoop of ice cream into your palm, divide it in half and place a cube of cheese in the middle
Pat meatball firmly together in a round shape and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 22 minutes or until nicely browned.
When cooked, place the meatballs on a plate lined with napkins for a minute or two, to remove the grease.

Onion Crunch® Cochinita Pibil

Quinoa and Rice Squash and Onion Crunch

A slow-roasted pork dish, originating in the Yucatan

Marinade Ingredients:

1 1/2 Cups Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1 1/2 Cups Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
90 grams Achiote Condimentado Paste
4 Cloves Garlic
Salt to Taste
Pepper to Taste
2-3 Tablespoons Chicken Bouillon Powder, optional
3 lbs. Pork Shoulder or Loin

Wrap Ingredients:

2-4 Large Banana Leaves
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil or Melted Lard

Salsa Ingredients:

6 Habanero Chiles
2 Cups Onion Crunch
1 Cup Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
1 Cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
Salt to Taste

Marinade Directions:

Dilute the achiote paste in the lime and orange juice. Add salt and pepper to taste as well as chicken bouillon if desired. Cut the pork into stew-sized pieces. Marinate the pork in the achiote-juice mixture in a covered dish in the refrigerator for 12-24 hours. Marinating is essential to succes, so this step cannot be skipped.

Salsa Directions:

Toast the habanero chiles in a skillet over medium heat. Remove from heat and cool. Finely chop the chiles, and add the onion, lime and orange juice. Add salt to taste. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving with the cochinita pibil.

Wrap and Roasting Directions:

Pre heat oven to 325 degress Farenheit.

To prepare the banana leaves, hold them over a gas burner or put them in a skillet over medium heat. Heat them until they can change color a bit and soften. This prevents them from tearing when you wrap the pork in them. Be careful not to overtoast them or they’ll become brittle.

In a rectangular pan, lay a banana leaf lenghtwise and another along its width. Place the marinated pork, pouring all the marinade on top of it, on the leaves and pour the vegetable oil or melted lard over the pork. Fold the banana leaves over the pork and flip the wrapped pork seam-side down in the pan. Make sure the leaves are moist so they won’t burn. Cover with foil. (Some people just choose to cover the pork with foil without the banana leaves because they think they are just for show. However, the leaves do add their own unique, subtle flavor to the pork, so don’t skip this step either).

Bake for 2 hours. Remove from oven and carefully remove foil. The pork should be very tender and fall apart easily when pulled with a fork. If not, return to the oven and cook until tender. Shred pork with 2 forks when done.

Serve the cochinita pibil with warm corn tortillas and plenty of Onion Crunch and eat taco style. If prefered, serve it sandwich-style on warm bread. In either case, don’t forget the pickled onion-habanero salsa and plenty of Onion Crunch.

chicken dip

By A Mama's Corner of the Wolrd

4 Large, Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, split and pounded flat for rolling
1 tsp. Olive Oil
1 tsp. Butter
1 c. Frozen Spinach
1 c. Frozen Peppers and Onions, chopped or an equal amount of fresh, chopped green peppers, red peppers, and yellow onion
2 Tbsp. Pepperoncini, diced
½ c. Black Olives, chopped
¼ c. Parmesan Cheese, shredded or grated
¼ c. Feta Cheese, crumbled
½ tsp. Garlic Powder
½ tsp. Black Pepper
¼ tsp. Salt
2 Tbsp. Bottled Greek Salad Dressing
2 c. Loeb's Onion Crunch
2 Tbsp. Flour
1 Egg, lightly beaten in a shallow dish for dipping the chicken
Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Directions:

1. Preheat oven and prepare baking pan. Lightly spray a shallow baking sheet with cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 400F.
2. Prepare the spinach and feta filling. Heat butter and olive oil in a medium skillet until hot. Add the spinach, peppers and onions. Saute until the vegetables are just tender—about 3-5 minutes. Add the pepperoncini, the black olives, the spices and the Greek salad dressing. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan and Feta cheeses.
3. Stuff the chicken breasts. Lay each flattened chicken breast out flat on a clean work surface. Place ¼ of the filling mixture on one side of each breast, leaving about an inch around the breast free of filling. Fold in the edges and roll the meat over to enclose the filling. Secure the rolls with toothpicks or kitchen string if you have difficulty “sealing” them.
4. Coat the stuffed chicken breasts. In a shallow dish, combine the Onion Crunch and flour. Carefully dip each stuffed chicken breast into the egg and then into the Onion Crunch mixture—pressing the Onion Crunch mixture into both side of the chicken breast.
5. Bake. Place each stuffed breast onto the baking dish. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Allow to rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
6. Serve. We served the Oven Baked Spinach & Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Onion Crunch Coating with couscous and broccoli salad.
