1 1/2 pounds pork loin cutlets, boneless, lean
2 slices bread, whole wheat
1/4 cup nuts, almonds, slivered
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 tablespoon parsley, fresh, chopped
2 cloves garlic, fresh
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
2 tablespoons canola oil or vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place bread in a toaster and toast until light brown. Slice bread into cubes and place in blender or food processor. Blend for about 10 seconds until you have bread crumbs. Add almonds, Parmesan, parsley and garlic to the blender and blend for another 10 seconds until chopped and incorporated. Trim visible fat from each loin. Pound each loin to about 1/4 inch thickness. Dip in oil and then in bread crumb mixture, pressing bread crumbs to coat. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes until cutlets are cooked through and golden brown.
