Super Bowl Sunday is coming up next month. It’s a great day to entertain your friends and enjoy camaraderie while gathered together for the love of the sport.
This Super Bowl Sunday try serving something a little different to your cheese head banging and terrible towel waving guests. Instead of the usual homemade chili, queso dip and a potentially disastrous attempt to create a football helmet-shaped cake, opt for our Chop Block Sliders. These thinly sliced pork chops sandwiches stack easily and are a nice presentation that’s bound to please those football fans that drop by to watch the game – and the commercials and the halftime show-with you. And while this delicious roll may not the healthiest, keep in mind that this is a Super Bowl party and not a Dr. Oz marathon get together.
Chop Block Sliders
6 thinly sliced boneless pork chops
2 cups Italian dressing
2 cups Italian bread crumbs
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 cup mozzarella shredded cheese
20 small potato rolls or dinner rolls
Flatten the pork chops: Place pork chops on a piece of plastic wrap and cover the top of it allowing room for the meat to spread out. Using a meat tenderizer tool or the bottom of a heavy pan beat the pork chop out flat until thin. Cut into smaller pieces to make it easier to cook.
Place flattened pork in a re-sealable bag, and add two cups of Italian dressing to coat the pork. Refrigerate for 2-6 hours.
Mix the breading: Lay Parmesan cheese on a cutting board and finely chop with a sharp knife. Mix with Italian breadcrumbs and flour in a bowl.
Pre-heat oil in a large sauté pan to a medium high heat.
Take one piece of pork at a time and drag through the bread mix, coating both sides of the pork. Cook in hot oil for 3 -4 minutes on each side and set on a baking pan or cookie sheet when done.
Lightly sprinkle cooked pork with mozzarella cheese and place under the broiler until cheese is golden brown. Layer 2-3 pieces of pork per sandwich.
Serve on your favorite baguettes or rolls.
Serving suggestions: You can pre-make these before the game and arrange them on a large tray. Top your sliders with any or all of the following condiments, or eat them as is:
