Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using chicken breasts, pat dry. Cook until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Start the Potatoes

    Peel and cut potatoes into large chunks.

    Bring a medium pot with potato chunks covered by water to a boil.

    Once boiling, cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Reserve 1/2 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.

    While potatoes boil, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Mince chives.

    Combine panko, cheese, and 1 tsp. olive oil on a plate. Spread into an even layer.

    Pat pork chops dry. Season both sides with half the onion salt (reserve remaining for mashed potatoes) and a pinch of pepper.

  3. 3

    Prepare and Bake the Pork

    Evenly spread mayonnaise on one side of pork chops, then place on plate with panko-cheese mixture, pressing gently to adhere to one side.

    Place pork on prepared baking sheet, crusted-side up.

    Roast in hot oven until pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 12-14 minutes.

    Carefully remove from oven. Rest, 3 minutes.

    Pork thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner chop, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

    While pork roasts, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Finish the Potatoes

    Add sour cream, butter, a pinch of salt and pepper, remaining onion salt, and 2 Tbsp. potato cooking water to pot with potatoes.

    Mash until combined and smooth.

    If too thick, add additional potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Stir in half the chives (reserve remaining for garnish).

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping mashed potatoes with crispy onions and remaining chives. Bon appétit!
