Breakfast Pork Cutlets are a savory and satisfying way to start your day. These cutlets are seasoned, breaded, and pan-fried to perfection, offering a deliciously crispy exterior with a tender and juicy interior.


  • 4 boneless pork cutlets (about 1/2 inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs or panko
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Optional: Fresh herbs (such as thyme or parsley) for garnish


  1. If the pork cutlets are thick, use a meat mallet to pound them to an even 1/2-inch thickness.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. In another shallow dish, beat the eggs with the milk.
  4. Place the breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish.
  5. Dredge each pork cutlet in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Then dip into the egg mixture, and finally coat with the breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  6. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom.
  7. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded pork cutlets. Cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  8. Remove the pork cutlets from the skillet and drain on paper towels to remove excess oil.
  9. Serve the pork cutlets hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
  10. These pork cutlets can be paired with eggs, hash browns, or your favorite breakfast sides.
