Italian Pork Chops

Boneless Pork chops
½ package Ritz crackers
½ package dry Italian dressing
½ c. Parmesan cheese
1-2 eggs
Olive oil 

Beat eggs (1-2) in shallow dish. If not already combined, add cheese to cracker mix and place in shallow bowl, or plate. Heat skillet, usually on medium heat, with olive oil, use at least enough oil to cover bottom of pan. Once oil is hot, dip a pork chop into eggs, coating both sides. Then cover in cracker mix. Drop into skillet and cook pork thoroughly, turning 2-3 times to ensure breading does not burn. If burning begins, turn heat down.
