Side Dish Recipes
1.Mini Parmesan Truffle Hasselback Potatoes
These crispy baby potatoes are stuffed with Parmesan cheese and drizzled with truffle oil. They are a great side dish to pair with my Panko Parmesan Pork Chops. Both can be cooked in the oven at once. These mini potatoes do not disappoint.
Green beans go from frozen to cooked in less than 15 minutes. The great thing is that there is no need to defrost the beans either. Just toss them in a bit of olive oil and sprinkle on some garlic powder, salt and black pepper to make this healthy side dish.
I like to make this white rice with my Stuffed Pork Chop Italiano recipe as it soaks up the delicious sauce. This super simple side dish is the perfect complement to any pork chop recipe with a sauce. Plain rice turns into a great option for a side dish.
4.Air Fryer Baked Sweet Potatoes
These are a good option for a weeknight dinner. The sweet flavor of the potatoes works well next to pan fried pork chops and you can even bake them in advance then heat them up right before serving. I like to add a pat of butter and a sprinkle of brown sugar to them for extra flavor.
