Simple and Healthy Pork Dish

We eat a lot of fish and last night I felt like eating pork and something crunchy. So I started with Double Fiber whole-grain bread and made breadcrumbs.

Remove crust from bread slices and tear up in pieces. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.

Place pieces of bread in blender container in batches and blend into crumbs.

Spread out on a baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees F for 15 to 30 minutes depending on how much crumbs you have on the sheet.

Place 1 cup bread crumbs, a 1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste in blender container. Pulse until coarse crumbs are made.

Place crumbs in a dish. Beat 1 egg white in a bowl. Cut boneless pork tenderloin chops in thirds. Place in egg white, then in crumb mixture. Set on a wire rack that has been sprayed with PAM set over a baking sheet.

Spray tops of pork lightly with PAM. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for about 10 minutes. In the meantime mix 1/4 cup honey, 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce and 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard in a small bowl.

The pork comes out tender and moist inside and crispy on the outside.

Serve with sauce to dip pork in. You can eat this using your fingers or with a fork.
